Explore God: Doesn’t Science Disprove God? – September 21, 2015
1 Corinthians 3:19, For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness…”
Colossians 1:17, He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.
I am currently teaching a series entitled, “Explore God.” In the services on Sunday, I asked and answered the question, “Is there a God?” Any time I address the issue of God’s existence, I almost always have someone ask the question, “Doesn’t science disprove God?”
That is actually a great question! You might even be asking that same question yourself. Here’s the answer: Science absolutely has NOT disproved God. Science has proved itself an invaluable tool for increasing our knowledge of the way things in the universe work. It has improved our health, and over the years, helped solve some of the world’s problems. Unfortunately, science is very limited. The scientific process is confined to the natural or material world: what we can observe with our five senses in the here and now. However, you do not use a microscope to observe the patterns of history. You do not use the laws of thermodynamics for a better understanding of Shakespeare. No, science is limited to say the least.
So, is there a God? The Bible says, “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight…” because God was “…before all things, and in Him all things hold together.” So as beneficial as science is, it has not come close to disproving God.
