Does the Bible Contradict Science?
If the Bible is wrong about science, how can we trust it for our eternal destiny?
Although the Bible and science may seem to have many contradictions, upon close examination, we see they aren’t really contradictions at all. Let’s look at just a few reasons why:
- Natural evidence is always interpreted based on a person’s worldview.
- An evolutionary worldview will interpret scientific evidence based on faulty presuppositions, and will therefore draw the wrong conclusions.
- Scientific opinion changes over time; the Bible never does.
- Our interpretations of Biblical teaching may also be flawed, but that does not mean the Bible is in error.
We can confidently rest in the truth of Scripture, trusting that the God who made heaven and earth always speaks accurately about his creation.
