Origins Session 1: It's Not Science vs. God
When it comes to the history of the universe, many believe that science and faith are mutually exclusive.
Before You Read
We’ll get right to it: Young people today are departing the faith in historic numbers as the church is either unwilling or unable to address their questions on science and faith. BioLogos is hosting those tough conversations. Not with anger, but with grace. Not with a simplistic position to earn credibility on the left or the right, but a message that is informed, faithful, and hopeful.
Although voices on both sides are loud and extreme, we are breaking through. But as a nonprofit, we rely on the generosity of donors like you to continue this challenging work. Your tax deductible gift today will help us continue to counter the polarizing narratives of today with a message that is informed, hopeful, and faithful.
When it comes to the history of the universe, many believe that science and faith are mutually exclusive. In this six-session video companion to their book Origins, professors Deborah and Loren Haarsma explore what God’s Word and God’s world teach us about creation, evolution, and human origins.
Designed especially for small groups and discussion groups, these videos and accompanying study guide help participants reflect on the important issues raised in Origins and gain perspective on the ongoing conflict between Christians over how the universe began.
These films were made possible through the support of a grant from the Evolution and Christian Faith program by BioLogos. Learn more about BioLogos at biologos.org.
