In my own life, I have experienced pastors making creationism a primary issue of salvation. I have had people be disrespectful and impatient toward me. I have had open dialogue discouraged and even shut down by people who claimed to be “educators.” Consequently, I struggled to thrive. But these problems are not inevitable, even in churches where the leadership and congregation are mostly opposed to the idea of evolutionary creation. Many supporters of BioLogos are faithful members of churches like this. It is entirely possible to thrive in these church environments; in fact, you can do a great service to your fellow Christians by modeling how differences of opinion can be handled graciously and lovingly. The Church needs more of this.
