The Ethics of Science: Part 2

In part 1, we covered the biblical basis for the scientific method.  It is based on God’s faithfulness and is necessary due to man’s fallibility.  The procedures of science are intended to reduce the most common errors in reasoning, particularly the confirmation bias.  The main point of a Ph.D. program is to train students to properly interpret data by following proper protocol.  This can lead to new discoveries.  However, there is a right way and a wrong way to report such discoveries.

The Ethics of Science: Part 1

Scientists use a particular method to make new discoveries about how the universe works.  They also have a specific process of informing the world of their discoveries.  All ethical scientists follow these procedures whether they are Christians or non-Christians.  However, the protocols by which scientists conduct and publish research are rooted in the biblical worldview and cannot be justified apart from it.  This demonstrates the truth of the Bible.  And it also allows us to distinguish genuine scientific research from fraud.

The Theology of Job

Many people have heard of the patience of Job.  He was a righteous man who endured great hardship and yet maintained his faith in God.  But what is often overlooked is the rich theology contained in the book of Job.  Does Job’s theology match that of the modern Christian?

The Essentials – Part 2

In part 1, we looked at those doctrines that are essential to salvation: those that cannot be denied by a person whom Christ has saved…. But how do we know that our faith in God is genuine?  After all, Jesus refers to people who were confident in their salvation, who professed Christ as Lord, and even performed miracles in His name; yet, they will not enter heaven.  Just imagine living your life, thinking you are a Christian, being confident in your faith in Christ, and then having Him say to you on Judgment Day, “I never knew you.  Depart from Me.”
