Luke 11: 52 “Woe to you experts in the law, because you have taken away the key to knowledge. You yourselves have not entered, and you have hindered those who were entering.”
So many have staked their fate in the belief of science and because of this, many people, live their lives based on the latest scientifical trend. Sure, science often gets it right, but it often gets it wrong. People have chosen to live their lives trusting and believing what the science has to say in the current moment, but what happens when it has been proven wrong? Even then, many will be steadfast to their grip of their fractured scientifical convictions rather than admit they got it wrong and lost life over their belief.
“I trust the science.” I have heard that statement over and over to nauseum this past year. I am not downplaying science or the role it plays in our lives. I respect our scientists, doctors and those educated in this area, but my hope, trust, and faith are not in science but in Jesus Christ, the author and perfector of science. Science apart from Jesus Christ is sloppy and messy and leads people in the wrong direction.
So many, even believers, have spewed the gospel of science as if it is their personal authority and demand it be the authority over others. They stand on it, swear by it, and live it out to the fullest. But what happens when it fails? What happens when it has been proven to be off, or wrong? It is so much better to be in a continual passionate pursuit of truth.
I choose to spew the narrative of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Gospel is the inspired Word of God that has never come back void. It can’t and will never be proven wrong. What fearless freedom I have in standing firm in the truth I know and believe.
The Gospel narrative calls me to put my faith, hope, trust and confidence in Jesus Christ, not man or manmade things of the world; that is called idolatry. There is so much freedom when Jesus Christ is on the throne and nothing else.
