Science or Speculation

Many young people explain, “I guess I’m just too scientific to take Christianity seriously.”  In questioning them they explain, “The evolution I was taught in my biology classes is just not compatible with what is taught In the Bible.”  In that they are right, but can evolution rightly be called scientific?  True science depends on what human senses can observe, measure, and repeat.  The origin of the universe is outside the realm of science.  The beginning of life and many kinds of creatures cannot be explained by science.  God asked Job (38:4) “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?”  Job would have had to answer, “I wasn’t even born yet.  I have to take Your word for how You created the world and brought forth life.”  God could have answered, “Well then, do not call your speculations about the origin of the world and the life in it science.”

God’s account of the creation of this world and all that is in it (Genesis 1 & 2) fits well with what can be observed.  Come study the Bible with us at Peace Lutheran Church to see how this is so.  Sunday service time is 9:00 a.m.
