Did you know that it never rained before God flooded the Earth with Noah? This may seem insignificant, but there have been studies that support this fact. It is believed that the pre-flood atmosphere was surrounded by a massive canopy of water. Our atmosphere held all of our water. I’m sure at one point or another you’ve wondered how those massive dinosaurs could fly, much less lift those enormous wings. The atmosphere was in turn much denser with all of the water vapor making it more oxygen rich and possible for these beasts to fly…prove it you say? They have found petrified wood from before the flood and (plot twist) the trees do not have rings. Trees develop rings during rain and dry seasons but before God flooded the world this was not the case. Cool huh?
Whats the point of all this? Okay, yeah it’s cool but why does it matter? As Dan talked about last night, our faith causes us to think.
1 Peter 3:15 says, “but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.”
God and science are the same. There are so many examples of God working through science and archeological evidence of things that we hear about in the Bible. Did you know they have found chariot wheels at the bottom of the Red Sea? Our faith causes us to think. We must be able to think in order to have faith in the true and living God.
Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”
Our faith is real. It can be attacked and we must be ready to prove what we believe and why and how we believe it. The evidence is out there, in our Bible. Why else would it be called the “sword of our Spirit”? We have to use the things God gives us to spread the good news and strengthen our own faith. Dan quoted it beautifully, “we must research our doubt and learn the truth.”
Remember, its only the size of a mustard seed. Be encouraged. Have faith.
Are there any other cool examples of how science and faith work hand in hand that you’ve heard of? I’d love to hear more cases like this from y’all. Comment below in the box 🙂
