Message for August 18, 2013 from Pastor Jerry

“By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.” Heb. 11:3(NKJV)

       Last week I talked about faith and what it is and how we are to use it.  This week I want to share with you some information I researched on the internet.  Internet information is only as reliable as the people behind the website you visit.  Just because you read it on the internet doesn’t mean it is right.

       Are science and the Bible at odds with one another?  There has never been a proven scientific fact that is out of harmony with God’s word.  The Bible, in many cases, gave first evidence of what was later confirmed by science even though there was skepticism about the information until proven.  Science has never proven the Bible to be wrong.  The issue is what do you believe?  You must exercise faith no matter which way you go.

       How can you understand by faith?  That is what the above verse tells us.  Our whole life is one of faith.  Faith means we put our trust in something or someone.  We learned to have faith in our parents when we were small.  We have faith in teachers to believe what they teach.  Nothing we do is void of faith.  It takes faith to leave your house.  It takes faith to drive your car.  Faith is as common as the air we breath.

       When there is a conflict between science and the Bible where is your faith?  Do we side with science because we think, “They must be right, they are scientists.”  Does that make them right?  On the other hand, “God must be right, He’s God.”  Scientists that believe in God have stronger physical proof for their arguments than those who do not believe in God.  Without God “theories”(opinions not confirmed as true) always end up at a dead end.  Make sure you hear God’s side before you believe something.

“The first one to plead his cause seems right, until his neighbor comesand examines him.” Prov. 18:17(NKJV)
