H-A-R-M-O-N-Y: Showing Harmony Between Modern Science and Christianity to the French Speaking Church and Media

Association "Science et Foi Chrétienne"
Mr. Benoît Hébert

A very recent Survey (July 2012) shows that 63% of the French people don’t believe that God created the universe, and only 9% believe without doubts that God created it. The situation is not very different in most of French Speaking developed countries.

At the same time, many French speaking evangelical pastors and Christians are hostile to the idea that God created life and humanity through an evolutionary process.

Our love for truth urges us to contribute to change this situation. If we want the gospel to spread in countries where biological evolution is taught as early as primary school, we absolutely need to communicate to non Christian people that Christianity is not the enemy of modern science. We intend to make the French speaking church benefit from all the scientific and theological progress that has been made about origins.

That’s why we have gathered an international, multi denominational, multidisciplinary team of five French speaking Evangelical scientists, pastors and church leaders already active in the field. We intend to improve the work we have already begun by making our website (http://www.scienceetfoi.com/ ) and blog (http://cvablog.com/creationetevolution/ ) more attractive and visible, by publishing books, recording videos.

Since its very beginning, we have been sharing the same vision and purposes as The BioLogos Foundation. Instead of surrendering science in the hands of atheism, it is time for the French speaking church to realize that scientific discoveries glorify our almighty Creator, and enable us to know Him and His Word better.
