Angels & Demons, Christianity & Science

Kirk Wellum offers some wise advice on the relationship between Christianity and science, brought on after having watched Dan Brown’s recent movie, Angels & Demons. Here’s the last paragraph from  his post:

{W}e must acknowledge that there are many mysteries we will never completely understand until God gives us more revelation in the world to come. This does not mean that we give up looking for answers rather is means that we proceed carefully and tentatively in areas where the Bible is not explicitly clear. With regard to some of the biggest scientific questions it is important to remember that “it is by faith that we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible” (Hebrews 11:3). This faith is not opposed, and should not be opposed, to scientific inquiry. But the fact that faith is required to understand these things means that we must never forget that we are mere creatures trying to comprehend the works of an infinite God who is incomprehensible unless he takes us by the hand and leads us each step of the way along the path of discovery. How thankful we should be that although human beings so easily make a mess of things, our ultimate hope is not in them, but in God.
