Reasons to Believe

Learning to Love the Big Bang

Message Outline

Autobiographical testimony

  • Young-earth creationist by default
  • Turmoil over incompatibility of faith and science
  • Reconciliation of faith and science

How we can spread the word (and the Word)

  • Most seekers don't have Ph.D.s, but can still reach out
  • Teach our children well
  • Love our neighbors
  • Don't just sit and wait; be active!

Key Points to Remember

  •  We must always approach others with love and respect.
  • The science-faith issues are not salvation issues; Christians can disagree about them.
  • It's okay to ask questions and expect explanations.
  • Science is a valuable tool for supporting the Christian faith; it is NOT an enemy of Christianity. Likewise, scientists are human, NOT "tools of Satan."
  • Remember the "two-books" dual revelation; God's Word and God's world.
  • There's an important difference between facts and interpretations.
  • We might not be able to change the world, but we can change the world around us.
