What is one scientific discovery in the last 10-20 years that you consider to be HUGE?
Digging In: Read the following passages and discuss how they relate to scientific inquiry:
Read Psalm 19:1-4. What do the heavens declare about God? What “knowledge” do they reveal?
Read Psalm 139:13-18. How does this passage intersect with your understanding of a person’s DNA?
How does Psalm 139 take us beyond scientific inquiry to the matters of “why?” instead of “how?”
Read I Corinthians 15:3-8 and I John 1:1. What reasons do we have to conclude that these are reliable witnesses about Jesus and his life and resurrection?
Have you ever had an intellectual question that causes you to doubt something from God’s Word? What do you do about it? Read 2 Timothy 2:15 and 2 Timothy 3:14-17
What area might you need study and pray about to accept intellectually?
Alone with God:
- What questions do you still have about what the Bible says about creation.
- Spend some quiet time looking up verses with the word “creation” in it. How are they consistent?
- Spend some time in prayer about the things you aren’t sure about and ask the Lord to reveal his truth to you. Keep a journal about your questions and revelations from Bible study and prayer.
