Framing Science Discussions

By June 26, 2015January 24th, 2023No Comments

← Back to Resources

Christians may disagree about the details of ‘how’ and ‘when,’ but for our discussions we agree on this foundational doctrine: 1) Encourage a respectful discussion within the body of Christ and with those outside Christianity 2) Recognize that both strict naturalists who dismiss supernaturalism and strict adherents to certain secondary doctrines within Christianity can squelch dialogue through dogmatism and unkindness 3) Both ‘sides’ should take responsibility by refraining from demeaning other viewpoints 4) Acknowledge the tension that arises when our understanding of science and our understanding of faith seem to be in conflict 5) Suggest that our confusion may stem from either an incomplete view of Scripture or an incomplete view of science 6) Encourage students to pray for wisdom, seek the Scriptures, and dialogue with other believers, especially their parents.
