Has Science Buried God? Part 2

Hello SNC,

For the last two weeks we’ve been looking very specifically at the question – “Has Science Buried God?”. It has been a very intellectually stimulating and challenging two sermons to preach but I’ve had a great time. From here we are going to move on to some other questions. I recognize that there are side questions that arise from this discussion that because of time constraints I may not have addressed. Please know that there are wonderful resources online for you to study and look in to. If this discussion has piqued your interest, let me invite you to run with it and do not let your study end here. If you are interested in more resources let me know, I’m sure we can find some together.

My main focus was to really ask a very specific question and look at the commonly held misconception that science and Christianity are incompatible. My hope is that you have seen me build a case for why I believe they are actually quite compatible and that I believe science may even point us to God’s existence. To me this is such a fascinating topic; one that fills me with awe. It slams home reality to me: “Oh dude; He’s actually there!!!!!” Thank you for joining me on this journey of wrestling with this question.

Now with that said – some of Christianity’s staunchest critics would argue that science is not a complete smoking gun proving God is there and that Christianity is true.  I would agree.  but it is one of the pieces of evidence that have led me to find the Christian faith to be highly compelling and rational. From here we will move on to other questions that may be more theological or philosophical in nature. But as we close this little discussion on science and God I’d like to leave you with a song by Phil Wickham called: “You’re beautiful.” Give it a couple listens this week. Click here for the lyrics. Let them be a prayer for you. May God bless you this week!!!

Pastor Ryan

I see Your face in every sunrise

The colors of the morning are inside Your eyes

The world awakens in the light of the day

I look up to the sky and say

You’re beautiful

 

I see Your power in the moonlit night

Where planets are in motion and galaxies are bright

We are amazed in the light of the stars

It’s all proclaiming who You are

You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful

I see You there hanging on a tree

You bled and then You died and then You rose again for me

Now You are sitting on Your heavenly throne

Soon we will be coming home

You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful

 

When we arrive at eternity’s shore

Where death is just a memory and tears are no more

We’ll enter in as the wedding bells ring

Your bride will come together and we’ll sing

You’re beautiful (x2)

 

I see Your face,

You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful

 

I see Your face,

You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful

 

I see Your face,

I see Your face

 

I see Your face,

You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful, You’re beautiful
