Unbelievers and those who claim to be Christian advocate that believers should give up their faith and follow science simply because it has an alternative idea to creation. I say give up their faith because that is exactly what they are doing when they say that science trumps God.
That is a very narrow piece of data to gamble one’s eternal soul upon. What about the bigger picture? Is science worthy of such worship and loyal following? It seems that science would have to be near perfect in order to require or demand such loyalty and status. Well let’s look to see if science is up to the task of being perfect or near perfect.
1. Science cannot–
stop people from getting sick
stop people from dying
stop people from gambling
from lusting, stealing, being greedy, committing adultery, from lying or sinning in general
provide eternal life
stop wars or murder, rape incest or molestation
stop scientific hoaxes from taking place or correct them in a reasonable amount of time
stop earthquakes, tornadoes, tidal waves, hurricanes, thunderstorms, or any other storm that exists in this world
stop boats from sinking, buildings from falling, erosion, droughts, and so on
see into the future or look back into the past,
measure the universe nor find the supposed common ancestor or the supposed original conditions that existed when life began
say when life began or how it did
stop global warming
i think you get the idea here.
2. Science hides–
and on it goes
Science seems to be inadequate at many things so 2 questions:
1. why are so many believers leaving God and the Bible for science when the latter is so incompetent and incapable?
2. Why are so many unbelievers NOT leaving science and going with God and the Bible?
They have put their faith in the wrong thing yet refuse to repent and return to the truth. Science isn’t that great and I have mentioned before that over 200,000 people die each year at the hands of medical science.
I would be amiss in my duties if i did not mention the countless millions who die at the hands of science each year. Wars take their toll and science has had a very large hand in making war possible. Scientists keep thinking up new and creative ways to kill humans and kill them they have through poisons, gases, weapons, bombs and even faulty fertilizer, pollution and other scientific ‘discoveries that were supposed to help the health of the people of the world yet did not.
If people want to make changes to their faith, they really should look at the whole picture and not the parts that sound good to them. Unbelievers are great at highlighting the supposed benefits of science but they are never honest as they do not tell about or compare their benefits to the drawbacks of scientific work.
They will say that thanks to science people live longer but they fail to mention all the deaths that occur each year because of science–more than 200,000 times the amount that occur by faith healing and we are not even approaching the subject of injuries that happen to people.
Atheists and unbelievers love to call God a mass murderer but they ignore all the murders committed at the hands of science and unbelievers. The unbeliever has no honesty when it comes to comparing God with their own efforts.
There is no comparison between God and science. Science does not even enter the ballpark because it is so limited, lacks so much and is so incapable. Next time an unbeliever or someone claiming to be Christian tries to convince you to take your eyes off God or Jesus and put them on science, just dismiss their words and reject their points.
Science cannot hold a candle to God and is so inferior that it is ridiculous that people still bow down and worship it or take science’s word over God’s.
