1 God’s Not Dead: Is Science The Answer To Everything?
Psalm 8:1 – 9 ; 1 Peter 3:15 (1) Satellite Galaxies… (2) Massive Neutrinos…

2 1. Real Faith Isn’t Blind “What Worries Me Is If You Don’t Have, If You Don’t Allow A Rational Basis For What You Believe Then It Is Possible For People To Say, ‘I’m Sorry I Just Believe That Allah Told Me To Go Kill All All Those People.’ And It’s No Good Arguing With Me Because Arguing Is Not What It’s About. Faith Is What It Is About, And That Is The Danger.” - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion Debate

3 Real Faith Isn’t Blind (Cont.)
“I Understand It From My Own Perception Of The New Testament That That Is Not What The Christian Faith Is, That’s Dangerous, That Blind Faith. But All Faith Is Not Blind Faith And Just As You Say You Have Faith In The Scientific Method And So Have I, I Have Faith In God And Believe That It Is Evidence Based.” - John Lennox, The God Delusion Debate

4 Real Faith Isn’t Blind (Cont.)
“Now Faith Is The Substance Of Things Hoped For, The Evidence Of Things Not Seen. “For By It The Elders Obtained A Good Report. “Through Faith We Understand That The Worlds Were Framed By The Word Of God, So That Things Which Are Seen Were Not Made Of Things Which Do Appear.” - Hebrews 11:1 – 3

5 2. God Or Science? “Science And God Are In Harmony – indeed, Science Is Of God.” Dan Cary, “God Vs. Science: A Spirited Debate Between Atheist Biologist Richard Dawkins And Christian Geneticist Francis Collins,” Time, November 13, “Remember, The Notion Being Sold To The Public Is That Science Deals In Fact And Religion Deals In Faith” Broocks, God’s Not Dead.

6 2. God Or Science? (Cont.) “Men Became Scientific Because They Expected Law In Nature And They Expected Law In Nature Because They Believed In A Lawgiver.” C. S. Lewis, Miracles: A Preliminary Study “The Most Incomprehensible Thing About The Universe Is That It Is Comprehensible.” -Albert Einstein, Physics And Reality

7 2. God Or Science? (Cont.) “The Fowl Of The Air, And The Fish Of The Sea, And Whatsoever Passes Through The Paths Of The Seas. O Lord Our Lord, How Excellent Is Thy Name In All The Earth” (Psalm 8:8 – 9). Matthew Fontaine Maury, Pathfinder Of The Seas (1897)

8 3. Faith Involves Three Key Ingredients Hebrews 11:6
Knowledge (Psalm 8:3 – 5) Assent (Deuteronomy 30:19) Trust (John 14:1 – 3) “(1) But Without Faith It Is Impossible To Please Him: For He Who Comes To God (2) Must Believe That He Is, And That (3) He Is A Rewarder Of Them That Diligently Seek Him” -Hebrews 11:6

9 4. Is Science The Answer To Everything?
Limits Of Science – Ethics And Morality Limits Of Science – Mathematics Limits Of Science – Reason Limits Of Science – Why? “Science Basically Tells Us How Things Work. Religion And Faith Tell Us Why Things Are Here And How We Should Live Ethically And Morally” -Brooks, God’s Not Dead

10 4. Is Science The Answer To Everything? (Cont.)
“Science And Religion Are Not Mutually Exclusive. In Fact, Both Are Necessary To Our Understanding Of The World. Science Asks How Things Happen. But There Are Questions Of Meaning And Value And Purpose Which Science Does Not Address. Religion Asks Why. And It Is My Belief That We Can And Should Ask Both Questions About The Same Event.” - John Polkinghorne, Quoted In Dean Nelson, “God Vs. Science,” Saturday Evening Post, September/October 2011

11 4. Is Science The Answer To Everything?
“Science Can Only Be Created By Those Who Are Thoroughly Imbued With The Aspiration Towards Truth And Understanding. This Source Of Feeling, However, Springs From The Sphere Of Religion. To This There Also Belongs The Faith In The Possibility That The Regulations Valid For The World Of Existence Are Rational, That Is, Comprehensible To Reason. I Cannot Conceive Of A Genuine Scientist Without Profound Faith. The Situation May Be Expressed By An Image: Science Without Religion Is Lame, And Religion Without Science Is Blind” - Albert Einstein, Out Of My Later Years, 1956

12 “Let Us Hear The Conclusion Of The Whole Matter…” (Eccl. 12:13 – 14)
By Becoming A New Testament Christian Tonight Hear Him (Romans 10:17) Believe Him (Mark 16:16) Repent Of Sins Against Him (Acts 2:38) Confess Him (Acts 8:37) Be Baptized Into Him (Acts 22:16) Live For Him (Galatians 2:20) By Coming Back To The New Testament Church Tonight Come Back To Him (Matthew 11:28-30) Repent (Acts 8:22) Pray (James 5:16)
