This week I want to unpack how negative stereotypes, caused in part by the church, undermine efforts for Christians in the sciences to bridge faith and science. If the church is to aide Christians to pursue STEM vocations, as I suggested last week, we need to understand this threat and address it.
Helping the next generation see faith and science as a both/and instead of an either/or is one of the primary motivations for Science for the Church. One way to pursue this goal is to ensure that the church identifies science as a legitimate Christian calling.
I began by suggesting that the notion of infinity was simple—God is infinite and we are not. But is it simple? What do we mean when we refer to God as infinite?
Reality is nearly always more complicated and often more interesting than these simple dichotomies, in part because science is rarely pure in its pursuit of facts. What are some examples?…
science informs our prayers of confession. Whether it is our selfish nature that compels us to prioritize ourselves and our families, or the study of various neuroses, or understanding how our emotions get the best of us, science has a lot to say about sin.
