Have you ever wondered about the relationship between faith and science? What does Evolutionary Theory say about the Bible’s reliability?
How about history? What’s the relationship between modern history and the Bible? Is the Bible only valuable to the degree it’s historically accurate? Is it possible we moderns think differently about history than the ancients?
And what about doubt? Are we safe to assume that people of faith have no questions? What’s the place of doubt in the life of faith?
Some would say that when faith and science collide, faith gets the last word. Others hold that when biology and the Bible disagree, biology holds the trump card. And still, others say that faith and science are speaking seemingly separate languages, that their role is complementary, not antagonistic.
What are we to do with the implied tension between faith and science? Prevailing wisdom suggests we’ve got to do something because the number one reason students, in particular, are leaving the faith is the debate over human origins.
This week at Narrate we’re starting a brand new conversation called I’ve Got Questions. We want to jump headfirst into this conversation and see what ancient and contemporary thinkers are saying about the supposed conflict between faith and science. We want to have the kind of faith that isn’t afraid of the big questions and at the same time the kind of life that isn’t afraid of the work that comes with asking them.
If you’re intrigued we’d we’d love for you to join us for a brand new series called I’ve Got Questions. Narrate Church gathers every Sunday, downtown at Grandstreet Theatre at 830, 10 or 1130am. You can learn more about Narrate and our new upcoming conversation by visiting narratechurch.org or by finding us on Facebook.
