For as long as I can remember, I’d struggled with the concept of religion and the practicing thereof. The nucleus of this problem was my passion and adoration for science and the quantifiable answers she gives.
I was a young boy when I was chased out of Sunday school because I questioned the practical implications of Genesis and creation, more specifically. Being a mere 10 years old and humiliated for asking a logical question was the first divorce with religion I suffered. Science became my mistress, and I found myself drifting away from a theistic way of life.
In December, I casually walked into a bookstore where I bought The Language of God and A Brief History of Time. I don’t know what implored me to buy your book, but I felt a strong urge to read it. This book changed my life. For the first time, I understood that the Bible and science can coexist. I found that the topics you discussed directly answered many of my questions.
I now see how science and religion are but reflections of a Creator God (and that we cannot even start to comprehend His complexity). Thank you, BioLogos, for giving me the resources to merge my passion for science and my passion for God in a way that maintains the accuracy and truth of both.
