Biblical Integration Information:
Science is the orderly study of God’s creation. God’s true nature is partially revealed through the orderly, discoverable, and purposeful scientific laws He established to govern His Creation. Recognizing our limitations and sinful tendencies to worship the creation rather than the Creator, we should use science to encourage and promote life, health, community, and godliness as we seek to take our role in having dominion over the natural world. We can seek to bring glory to God by using scientific reasoning and critical thinking to understand God’s world, man’s role in it, and how to properly relate with our Creator and fellow man. As we pursue scientific truths through the lens of the Word of God, we will be led into a deeper understanding of our Creator and appreciation of His provision and wisdom.
