Welcome to Eastern Hills Baptist Church
We are so glad that you decided to join us in worship today. Here at Eastern Hills we realize that we are all in different places on our journey with Christ, and that's okay. Whether you are a seeker, looking for answers, or a long-time follower of Christ, you are welcome here.
Question: Are faith and science in conflict with each other?
Quotes from notable scientists, ancient and modern:

“[It is my] loving duty to seek the truth in all things, in so far as God has granted that to human reason.” Nicholas Copernicus (1473-1543)

“Knowledge is the rich storehouse for the glory of the Creator and the relief of man’s estate.” Francis Bacon, 1561-1626)

“God is known by nature in His works, and by doctrine in His revealed Word.” Galileo Galilei (1564-1642)

“What you can show… is that these ideas, these metaphysical underpinnings of science… go back to a long history of theological reflection on a God who is faithful and sustains the world, therefore, in a regular way.” Ard Louis, Professor of Theoretical Physics, Oxford

“I don’t have the faith to be an atheist.” Kenneth Miller, Professor of Biology, Brown University

“One of the joys I have in studying the natural sciences is that I learn a little bit about what God has done. And in the process, I think I come to understand a little bit of what He is like. He is much bigger, much grander, much more awesome, much more majestic than I would have previously imagined.” Troy Van Voorhis, Professor of Chemistry, MIT
Today's Points:

1) Science can inform us about things the Bible isn't meant to inform us about.

2) The Bible informs us about things that science cannot inform us about.

3) The Bible tells us what’s wrong with creation and how it will be corrected.
“Since the world had been created by a reasonable God, [scientists] were not surprised to find correlation between themselves as observers and the thing observed—that is, between subject and object… Without this foundation, modern Western science would not have been born.”

— Francis Schaeffer, How Should We Then Live?
“See, science—it provides a set of tools that are useful for investigating phenomenon in the natural world. But as powerful as it may be…it’s not really intended for questions like, “Why did life forms originate in the first place?”... Science is not equipped to answer questions like this.”

—Praveen Sethupathy, Associate Professor of Biomedical Sciences and Director of the Center for Genomics at Cornell University
For discussion this week:
-- After listening to this sermon, do you think faith and science are in conflict? Why or why not?
-- What is something that science informs us of that the Bible does not?
-- What is something that science cannot inform us of that the Bible does?
