She said, “Take for instance the crossing of the Red Sea. We know this body of water was only about six inches deep.”
A boy toward the back of the room shouted, “Praise God for the miracle!”
The irritated teacher asked, “What miracle?”
“God drowned the whole Egyptian army in just six inches of water,” said the boy. “That had to be a miracle.”
I wanted to use this illustration to make a point. Often times someone who claims not believe in God, the Bible, or anything else having to do with Christianity thinks that they have a strong case...because nobody ever challenges them.
I guess we figure that if “science” says something, then it has to be right. And if somebody tells us that “science” says this did/didn’t happen, then it either did or didn’t happen. “Science” has to be right.
The boy above has a lot of courage. He questioned something that “science” said...and you know something, he proved “science” (and the teacher) to be incorrect at worst and inconsistent at best.
“Science” has also been shown to be incorrect in many other areas. There have even been times when “science” has challenged the accuracy and authenticity of the Bible. Every time, the Bible was shown to be accurate.
So the next time somebody tells you that “science” says something that contradicts a clear teaching of the Bible, simply respond with two words: “Prove it.”
They will probably talk about this or that study and what Famous Scientist 1 said and Famous Scientist 2 confirmed. Then ask if they have ever viewed these studies or met these people. So then they have to have faith that the studies they have not seen and the scientist they have not met are real and who they claim to be.
Sound at all familiar?
