New Direction

Been thinking about this blog and my disillusion with science. “Scifaith” is descriptive, though. My Creator has been helping me get weaned away from my dependency on “scientific” thinking about stuff. Scientific thinking was always competing with a simple trust and faith in our Creator. It’s the “scientific” thinking that says, “believe it when you see it”. Maybe that’s why many Christians are so hung up on miracles and signs. Jesus told Thomas, “because you have seen me you believe, blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe”

Today, we need to take a closer look at the admonission of the Bible, “…keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith.”. “Profane and vain babblings” to is becoming such an apt description of much that’s coming from “science”. There are all these shows on TV now that make grandiose claims to have figured out how the universe began, how dinosaurs lived, the social lives of various creatures and so on. It’s all babble cause it’s the One who made them that them really understands all these creatures completely and accurately. But, science is too far out in left field to handle that reality.

Many of us will need to make that transition from science to faith as we come to know and understand our Creator. Science has become the excuse for sticking our heads in the sand concerning our real existence and purpose. We were made for our Creator’s purposes and He is responsible for the existence of each of us. He treasures us and sent Jesus to die for our crimes as proof.
