Faith and Science: Friends or Foes

October, 2014

My wife, Cassie, and I went on a three week trip to the northwest this past July and August.1 During the Alaskan cruise portion of our trip, we attended an intelligent design (ID) conference sponsored by the Discovery Institute (http://www.discovery.org) entitled “Faith and Science: Friends or Foes?” Afterwards we visited Mount Saint Helens in Washington, then Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks. As you can imagine, the scenery was beautiful.

The purpose of this article is to communicate the content of the talks given during the ID conference based on the notes I took. Occasionally, I will comment on the speaker’s thoughts. These comments will appear in italics and prefixed with the word ”comment.” 2

The Theological Impact of the Doctrine of Creation

August, 2014

The doctrine of creation is often de-emphasized among Christians today as holding secondary importance. After all, isn’t Christianity about salvation through Jesus? While it is true that the Christian message centers on the atoning work of Jesus that is not a reason to neglect creation.

Theology can be understood in two ways. On the one hand, “Theology is the topical and logical study of God’s revealed nature and purposes.”1 It is the discipline which seeks to express a biblical understanding of God and what he reveals about the world, mankind, and mankind’s relationship with God. 2 On the other hand, however, theology is not a purely academic discipline. Every person has a theology because every person has thoughts about God, who and what mankind is, and what happens after people die. One person’s theology may be more fully thought out than another person’s theology, but every person has a theology whether he realizes it or not.
