One of the most important tools God gives us in our search for truth is the scientific method: observing natural events and creating models or ideas about how and why things are the way they are. He tells us that real science will never oppose His truth, since He’s the Author of it all, and that if we accept any kind of false science we err in our faith. (1Ti 6:20-21)
Yet too many of us are content to believe whatever we’re told, afraid to question and explore. It leaves us prone to error and superstition, and moves those who do intelligently explore our world to dismiss our witness of the rest of God’s truth.
Whether challenging evolution (finding it void of scientific foundation), space travel, or the shape of our Earth (it can’t be flat), we need to do our homework and be honest. We should always be ready to give a humble, informed, confident answer to anyone who is asks us why we believe the way we do. (1Pe 3:15) It’s the only way to walk with God in integrity.
