Assemblies of God Change Position on Creation

Add the Assemblies of God (AG) to the list of denominations who are old-earth creation friendly. The AG recently updated its official position on the age of the earth.

"The Doctrine of Creation,” 2010

My friend, Rusty, who is a long-time member of the AG, has posted some thoughtful words about this development.

"Young Earth Creation: A Sad Day for Unwavering Dogmatism"

Rusty also responds to Ken Ham's recent blog post bemoaning this "compromise."

"A Sad Day for the Assemblies of God Denomination"

Contrary to what Ken Ham may say, the statement by the Assemblies of God denomination is sound and does a good job of balancing the biblical text with general revelation. Sadly, Ken Ham continues to hijack the discussion by equating young-earth creationism with the preservation of the authority and integrity of Scripture.

I don't really have anything else to add because Rusty pretty much says it all.
