Should a scientific principle be butted up against a religion? I don’t hear any Christians arguing the existence of a DNA strand. Christians can use a microscope, too. They are not afraid of science; are not afraid of taking a deeper look into the glorious worlds of physics, genetics and biology. Many Christians are in love with science. It is their passion and their purpose in life to study God’s creations; to understand how living tissue grows and changes.
You know, it would be fantastic if we knew exactly how we were first built from day number one. It would be great to learn how the first living cell was constructed; built from the ground up; piece by piece; step by step… so let’s keep looking for the answer! In every system there is always a first step, and God, too, used a first step and a first piece when creating life. What piece, what part, of the living cell do you think has to be put in place first to get the living cell to work; to get the cell to turn on and run the way it was designed to run?
Christians fight against evolution not because it is a good scientific foundation (one in which that applies the solid laws of physics) to build biological truth on, but because it is a philosophy that excludes God’s word. Listen, God built each component of this world step by step. If you’re a scientist and you want to know how to build the living cell from the ground up; if you want to construct the cell like it is a small motor, then look to God for the instructions.
“My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I tell you this so that no one may deceive you by fine-sounding arguments” (Colossians 2:2-4).
Godspeed and blessings to all our beautiful scientists!
