About this Series
How do we understand science in light of Scripture? Can we practically do science as believers? Is science God glorifying? Join Dr. Abner Chou, Dr. Joe Francis, and Dr. Matthew McLain as they discuss they very important questions and help us to think biblically about the field of science.
Ep. 1 How Do We Understand Science In Light of Scripture?
How do we understand the field of science in light of Scripture? This is absolutely crucial because science is always in the news. It’s driving the discoveries, the mentality, and the policies of our society. It is crucial to have a solid foundation of theology as we look at science. Science, as with anything outside of the Bible, does not determine the meaning of the Bible. God is the creator, and he determines the meaning of everything. Join Dr. Abner Chou, Dr. Joe Francis, and Dr. Matthew McLain as they discuss how we take what we are learning about science and what the Word of God says.
Ep. 2 Can Science Be God Glorifying?
Can science be God glorifying? The more we learn about science, the more we realize how much we don’t know. Science, when done rightly, helps us articulate what Scripture articulates in a very compact and concise form. The Scriptures say a lot in a little, and science picks up on that. Join Dr. Abner Chou, Dr. Joe Francis, and Dr. Matthew McLain as they discuss how science, when understood through the lens of Scripture, points to the glory of God.
Ep. 3 Do Science and Scripture Contradict Each Other?
When nature appears to contradict what Scripture says, does that mean God has lied to us? Does that mean we must shift our thinking towards what nature is telling us? Join Dr. Chou, Dr. McLain, and Dr. Francis as they address what we do when Scripture and science seem to contradict each other.
Ep. 4 How Do We View Nature in Light of Knowledge?
What is the purpose of gaining knowledge? Do we strive to gain knowledge just so we can say we have that knowledge? The real question we should be asking ourselves what is the right foundation for us to build our knowledge? Join Dr. Chou, Dr. Francis, and Dr. McLain as they discuss the various foundations we can build our knowledge on.
Ep. 5 How Can Christians Do Science?
How does a scientist who is genuinely committed to the authority of Scripture practically do science? Dr. Chou, Dr. Francis, and Dr. McLain discuss how this is possible.
Ep. 6 How Do I Learn More About Science?
You have an interest in science, now what? Dr. Francis and Dr. McLain discuss how you should pursue science whether you want to be in that field for a career or you desire to expand your knowledge of our creator.
