Why is all this important? Why look into the science and math behind the Bible? Shouldn’t we just accept the Bible for what it says and forget science? Or just call the Bible a fairy tale and stick with science?
How many people do you know (and maybe you fall into this category yourself) who went to public school, were taught evolution as if it were proven fact, and then questioned the truth of the Bible as a result? I believe that is the reason why so many young people who grew up going to church turned away from their faith as they got older. They just couldn’t incorporate what they were taught in science class with what they learned in Sunday school. They chose to believe their atheist science teachers instead of the Bible because nobody taught them that God’s Word doesn’t contradict good science.
I’ve had college students walk away from my seminars and tell me, “You made God real to me!” That’s exactly what I’m trying to do. I want you to see that God’s Word is true and trustworthy from beginning to end. You should never check your brain at the door when you study the Bible, nor should you check your faith at the door when you go to science class. It all works – trust me!
My desire is that you will learn to ask questions. Things like “How do they know that?” and “Where’s the proof for that?”. Don’t blindly accept what you’ve been taught, whether it’s your Sunday school teacher, science teacher, or National Geographic Magazine. Just because people have more education in a certain field doesn’t always mean that they have more correct answers to your questions. Those who don’t follow God have become willfully ignorant. (2 Peter 3:5) We sinful humans have an amazing ability to deceive ourselves and deny the truth when it isn’t convenient.
So that’s my heart in sharing all this. That you will know God better and follow Him more closely. I welcome your comments and questions.
