Does the Bible take priority over science, or are science and scripture complementary?
Here’s the approach I take: All truth is God’s truth.
I’m not the first to use this phrase by any means, but I think it is a good summary of how I view the relationship between science and my Christian faith.
Sometimes there appears to be a contradiction between science (general revelation) and the Bible (special revelation). When this conflict occurs, it could be for one of two reasons: either we don’t understand nature correctly, or we don’t understand the Bible correctly. In the end, when we understand both correctly, there will be no conflict.
For now, we need to approach these “conflicts” with humility, hard work, and intellectual rigor.
