One of the most interesting things I’ve noticed is that the conflict isn’t really between all of science and all understanding of God. It generally comes down to a tussle between Scripture and anywhere science appears to conflict with that, especially if it has to do with our humanity, mortality, and eternity… My fear, however, is that if we don’t find ways to involve science in youth ministry, we won’t have anybody bothering to ask us questions at all. The wrestling of science is the point, in a sense, and that translates to theology as well.
