Science

Posted 09-29-2012 at 03:36 PM by snowduck


There has been friction between science (in academia) and the Bible regarding teaching of almost everything since ancient times. While it has its place, science just amounts to man's knowledge of things, which is a blessing from God. And while not using the word "science" here, he tells us to trust him in Proverbs 3:5 -Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; - One could say that Solomon taught science in old testament times in 1Kings 4:33 - He spoke about plant life, from the cedar of Lebanon to the hyssop that grows out of walls. He also spoke about animals and birds, reptiles and fish - and when God made him the king of Israel, Solomon didn't turn to science for answers but asked God for guidance in 2 Chronicles 1:10 - Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, - The word "science" appears in The old King James Bible in 1Timothy 6:20 - O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Newer translations use the word knowledge instead of science. Either word you like amounts to the same thing, and we either trust our own knowledge or we believe in God and trust his. Science has given mankind many good things and will continue to do so, and I'm thankful to God for it, but it can't do more than offer various theories that are generally opposed to the Bible about some things. Like everything else science is limited in what it can do, and people who put all their faith in it remind me of what God told Isaiah about the Israelites (Isaiah 6:9) in the old testament, written about in - Matthew 13:14 - In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: "You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.- By that God means that if they didn't want to listen to him, he would make his word non-understandable to them, and if he did that to us, we wouldn't know about his son Jesus, who was sent to be the only Savior of the world, someone we all need. Searching for answers with knowledge (a.k.a. science) is good as long as we do it God's way. His definition of knowledge is different than ours, and as we are told in Proverbs.1:7 - The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, What About Jesus?
