Christians are called on to believe in miracles, especially those in the gospels. Science does not accept miracles: earthly events have earthly causes which we can (in theory) discover if we search carefully enough. Scientific knowledge has expanded tremendously in the past two centuries, and the fruits of that knowledge surround us in our daily lives. So much so, that for many people, events that once called miracles are not miracles at all, but are either ordinary events that have scientific explanations or simply didn’t happen at all.
Lee Strobel takes on the scientific objection to Christian teachings in chapter 2 of his book, The Case For Faith. In an interview with philosopher and theologian Dr. William Craig, he explores whether faiths in science and Christianity can co-exist, or if science really excludes the possibility of miracles.
Gentlemen, you’re invited to an evening of fellowship, a hearty dinner, and some thoughtful discussion around a topic that is relevant in today’s society. On Tuesday, October 10, the evening starts with time for socializing before we sit down to dinner. If you do attend, it is appreciated if you RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can plan the dinner. We also will ask for an optional donation to help cover the cost of the dinner.
It is helpful, but not required, to read the first two chapters of Strobel’s book beforehand. Copies are available from the church office for $8.
