BioLogos or the BioLogos Foundation is a pro-evolution think-tank that receives millions of dollars of grant money from the John Templeton Foundation that promotes and popularizes theistic evolution. Former head of the NIH Francis Collins, (an ex-atheist who became a Roman Catholic and theistic evolutionist) is the founder of BioLogos.[1] As part of its “Evolution and Christian Faith” campaign, the organization is donating money to churches, parachurch groups, and academics to promote evolutionary teaching. So far, the organization has given grants ranging from $23,000 to $300,000 to 37 individuals and teams.

BioLogos is an organized group of theistic evolutionists consisting of scientists and theologians dedicated to convincing the Christian church to adopt evolution as the creative mechanism God used to bring about the world.[2] BioLogos claims to “invite the church and the world to see the harmony between science and biblical faith,”, although BioLogos purports to “embrace the historic Christian faith,” one looks in vain for robust defenses of Christian doctrine on their website, especially as historically understood. Rather, their statements about the Bible are couched in equivocal language; for instance, “Christian doctrine is broadly compatible with scientific accounts of our origins.”.[3] Francis Collins (who won the Templeton Prize in 2020 and Directed the National Institutes of Health)is one of it's most prominent promoters.[4]

Notable Heretical Quotes by BioLogos Contributors

"If Jesus as a finite human being erred from time to time, there is no reason at all to suppose that Moses, Paul, John wrote Scripture without error." — BioLogos contributor Kenton Sparks[5]
[E]ven though the Bible assumes a certain way of looking at the cosmos, from a scientific point of view the Bible is wrong. — BioLogos contributor Peter Enns[6]
First, the incarnation is not primarily about the cross. God does not send Jesus to die. God does not require Jesus’ death in order to forgive humanity’s sin. I argue that God did not will the cross . . . Christ’s death was not part of God’s divine plan. —BioLogos contributor Joseph Bankard[7]
