Bishop Kohlgraf said: "'I have a hard time with the idea of a mistake in the creation order,' he wrote. 'Or does this show a variation in the diversity of creation that is just there?'" This can happen when the literal meaning of a text in Scripture is neglected. The text stresses that God sees creation as "good", and even certain aspects as "very good". But nowhere in Scripture is it found that any creature or order was created "perfect". The bishop's assertions minimize grace and minimize God.
