Does Science Hinder Faith?

Just
as you cannot understand the path of the wind or the mystery of a tiny baby
growing in its mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the activity of God, who
does all things.

Ecclesiastes 11:5 (NLT)

Do scientific advancements hinder your faith in a
Creator God?

Weather patterns and fetal development were wildly mysterious
concepts in ancient times. Now we can predict the weather (with questionable
accuracy) and 3D ultrasounds peek at the unborn. Perhaps we need fresh examples
of yet-to-be-discovered mysteries.

Since science explains so many natural phenomenon,
is our wonder of God diminished?

Are we closer to understanding the activity of God?
Is it even possible to understand the God who does all things?

I conjure an image of God whooping and clapping when
we solve a scientific puzzle. Yes, my God whoops in delight. He cheers us on as
we ask deeper questions and uncover new intricacies in His handiwork. His
infinitely complex and precise Creation was meant to be enjoyed, explored and stewarded.

Do
scientific advances increase or diminish your awe of God?
