The human being as an individual is quite interesting, to say the least. As humans, we have double standards, we’re hypocrites, our minds work in a very peculiar way. Some say ‘faith’ is preposterous because it involves something that can’t necessarily be proven while believing that science is the answer to everything. To what extent do things have to be ‘proven’ in order be considered true? More importantly, why is faith in a spiritual being always argued with science? Look up the definition to ‘science’ real quick…don’t worry, I’ll wait. In no way does science involve the spiritual realm. The whole point behind faith is a trust in something that hasn’t been proven. If you want to break faith down to it’s simplest form, it’s trust. To have faith in something/someone is to have trust in it/them. To use the most outlandish example; do we get DNA tests to prove our parents are our parents? No, we trust them. Now don’t get me wrong, there is a certain point where we need to take a step back and evaluate what it is that we are believing. I have ‘faith’ that my pastor isn’t leading me astray from the teachings of the Bible, but that doesn’t mean I don’t make sure what I am being taught is accurate with those teachings. There are some aspects of our faith in God where we, as humans, need some sort of explanation. However, there are also some aspects where all we will have is faith. It is in those moments where our understanding of the Gospel and our own personal understanding of who God is, as much as we can hope that to be, comes into play. Do you have enough faith in our Father to trust that He is who He says He is? Do you have enough faith in our Father to walk into the pitch black with only Him as a guide? There isn’t always going to be a map of where you are going. I’ll go so far as to say that there is hardly ever a map. Do you have faith that the Creator of the Universe, our Father, our God, knows what He is doing and where He is leading us? Science doesn’t change what faith is. Science is merely an attempt to understand and that is absolutely fine. In no way am I attacking science. Like I have said, as humans, we want to understand. It’s when we take science beyond what it is, or what it is defined as, that the waters become murky. It is then that arguments of absolutely no importance come about. Its just a whisper compared to what is truly important. I don’t care if you do or do not believe in the literal seven days of creation. It’s not one bit important. I’ll be the ref. right now; Science, you stay in your corner and Faith, you stay in yours. There is a time and place where y’all may meet but it isn’t in a boxing ring.
