Debunking Faith Busters (Part 4: What About Science?)

“DEBUNKING FAITH BUSTERS”

Part 4 “What About Science – Hasn’t science proven Christianity to be untrue & outdated?”

INTRO: It’s a misconception that science and faith are almost always at odds with each other. The Bible tells us that God created everything (Gen. 1:1, 26-28; Rom. 1:20-25).

Many of the greatest scientific minds throughout history have been believers in God, as are many modern-day scientists. Many of today’s top thinkers now consider the tenets of atheism a mockery.

I. EVERY BELIEF SYSTEM REQUIRES FAITH.

  1. Every belief system or philosophy requires faith because these things can’t be proven scientifically.
  2. Often people’s belief is not arrived at because of convincing evidence but because of one’s philosophy.
  3. What do I believe? What is that belief based on? Is my position the most valid when examining the evidence?

II. SCIENTIFIC PROOF VS. LEGAL-HISTORICAL PROOF.

  1. Scientific proof requires examining repeatable events.
  2. Proving persons or events in history requires legal-historical proof from oral & written testimony & exhibits.

III. WHAT ABOUT THE EXISTENCE OF GOD, CREATION & MIRACLES?

  1. If God exists, miracles are reasonable, if not expected.
  2. The age of the earth can’t be proven scientifically.
  3. Evolution can’t be proven scientifically and lacks compelling evidence.

IV. FOUR EVIDENCES FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD:

  1. The Universe’s Existence (points to Intelligent Design).
  2. The Universe’s Complexity (to support life).
  3. The Existence of Objective Moral Values.
  4. The Possibility of Experiencing God Immediately (John 17:3; Rom. 8:16).

CONCLUSION: Knowing God personally and seeing Him change lives is the greatest evidence & miracle of all!
