Christian Education: A Christian View of Science
Prominent atheists frequently use science to attack Scripture. They claim that new scientific discoveries explain the universe with no need for God. Yet modern science arose in a Christian setting and many early scientists were committed Christians.
How should Christians think about science? How is God involved with nature? Did God create a universe that runs on its own through scientific laws, or is God directly involved with its everyday operation?
We will summarize the Christian origin of modern science, suggest reasons for present-day tensions between science and Scripture, and present elements of a biblical perspective of science.
