Luke 10:25-28 – Tough Questions of Faith: Are God and Science Enemies?
There are common questions that people ask God or want to ask God but are too afraid. At Beautiful Savior, we believe that God doesn’t get angry at us for asking questions, as if questions are somehow a sign that faith is lacking. Instead, the courage and willingness to ask questions are themselves building blocks of stronger faith. Faith is like a muscle; it must be stretched and challenged in order to remain healthy and grow. The following is a list of just a few of those many questions we may want to ask God. As you read these questions, ask yourself who you know that needs to hear a topic addressed and how you might invite that person to come to worship.
The idea that God and science are enemies is a false dichotomy that has become a common notion, especially in the last few hundred years. To the contrary, many famous scientists have been faithful believers in God, and it was in fact their faith that led them to groundbreaking discoveries. To grasp this topic the easiest, it is best to see that faith and theology get to ‘why’ God does things, and science gets to ‘how’ God does things.
