BioLogos has an incredible wealth of resources that it offers to churches on a daily basis. Among recent ones that caught my attention is a sermon by Rev. John Ortberg on whether science disproves faith. I decided to turn a brief snippet into a meme to draw attention to it, but do read the rest. See also Jim Stump’s piece on whether belief in God is reasonable. I think the key point to emphasize is that, while it is indeed possible to view faith and science as incompatible, that represents a choice to adopt specific views of faith, science, and/or the Bible that plenty of Christians – one hopes the majority – simply do not accept. And so that’s not a necessary choice.
NOTE: I was informed about the fact that John Ortberg is accused of betraying the trust of his congregation by allowing a pedophile to work with children in his church. Rather than delete my blog post, which was scheduled before this news broke, I am appending this notice.
