No Evasion

Justn Taylor quotes Chesterton:
“You cannot evade the issue of God . . . if Christianity should happen to be true—then defending it may mean talking about anything or everything. Things can be irrelevant to the proposition that Christianity is false, but nothing can be irrelevant to the proposition that Christianity is true.”
I worry about the strain of Christianity that spends so much time trying not to pay attention to stuff. Christianity is not a fence, but a filter. It does not prevent us from exploring, but it does color our perception when we do.

We explore because a) we learn more of the God we worship when we do, and b) we spread the good news about that God when we do. AS someone who has studied science more than anything else, at least formally, I can say I have learned massive amount about God in those studies. Science does not oppose religion. Some, even many, scientists do. We cannot discount studying science because of that, rather we must come to our studies prepared to sort the wheat and the chaff. We have to be smarter than those who think they are smart. We have to be more graceful than those that seek to indoctrinate us.

There is no reason to hide, there is only reason to get better.
