Hard Questions About the Bible

Science and Faith

The Bible says in Hebrews 11:1 that ‘Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see” (New International Version).  The Bible makes it clear that believers are to have faith, and many times that faith is based on what is not seen.

It’s easy to not believe in the Bible, because you can’t actually see God physically.  But the more you actually read the Bible, ask questions, and hear good Bible-based messages, the stronger your faith can become.

Scientific theories like the Big Bang Theory and the Theory of Evolution require faith too.  Your first clue is the word ‘theory’.  Theory is not the same as fact.  These scientific theories rely heavily on assumptions which haven’t been proven.

Some unproven assumptions:  The universe began with an explosion of energy and matter.  The earth is billions of years old.  Random combinations of energy and matter produced the orbiting planets and life.  Life began from non-life.  (Read my previous articles for discussions about these assumptions)

When you read scientific studies, ask the question, where is the proof, and is the proof conclusive?  If you look closely at claims by evolutionists, you will find that these assumptions have not really been proven.  So belief in the Big Bang Theory and the Theory of Evolution require just as much faith, if not more, than belief in the Bible.
