I really appreciate the last two paragraphs that talk about science being Kingdom work. Too many times I think young people get the message that science is a godless domain and the only way to pursue it in a God-honoring way is to take an antagonistic approach and fight it. Like we need Christians in science to infiltrate Satan’s territory and bring science to its knees. It is such a better message to say Christians should pursue science because it is making the world a better place, and as followers of Christ, every time we contribute to making the world a better place in Jesus’ name, we are doing Christian work.
I love it! Well stated.
The books of the Bible, and many works of theology tell us about God, and celebrate His creation. So does The Molecular Biology of the Cell.
Hi Sy, Since you capitalized and italicized, is that a reference to a book?
Yup, its one of the key textbooks in graduate molecular and cell biology and biochemistry. Everything you would want to know about how life works. I used to say it should be read in Sunday School.
