If our science should contradict the Bible. . .

Our science would be wrong.

Changing the meaning of the Bible based on our science is a bad idea for any follower of Christ.  The Bible teaches we have chosen a path of separation from God, a path of lies.  We all know that we are easily capable of covering up, misunderstanding, and twisting information. So God is not the one who needs to change when we find a contradiction between what He thinks and what we think–in any category, including science.

The fool says in his heart,

“There is no God.”

They are corrupt, and their ways are vile;

there is no one who does good.

God looks down from heaven

on the sons of men

to see if there are any who understand,

any who seek God.

Everyone has turned away,

they have together become corrupt;

there is no one who does good,

not even one.(Psalm 53:1-3, NIV)

In the same way that I wouldn’t trust Nietzsche over the Word of God, I wouldn’t trust our science–or anything else made by us–over the Words of the living God.

Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. (Deuteronomy 30:19b-20a, NIV)

He [Jesus] is the Word of life. This one who is life itself was revealed to us, and we have seen him. And now we testify and proclaim to you that he is the one who is eternal life. He was with the Father, and then he was revealed to us. (John 1:1c-2, NIV)
