1 Timothy 6:20
“O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge.”
For unreasonable and pitiful reasons, the Christianity of the twenty-first century has often been out of step with technology. This wasn’t always so. Throughout the fifteenth to the nineteenth centuries, the most accomplished engineers of the day were renowned Christian thinkers. The masters of physics, mathematics, medicine and astronomy were often great and notable believers in the Bible. Creation and the observable evidence of God’s existence were an integral part of their studies. Like Isaac Newton, many of them according to their own data entries, were prompted to pursue a certain scientific endeavor based upon what they had read in the Scriptures.
It was A.W. Tozer who said, “Don’t throw your head away – you’ll need it.” That’s good advice for us today. The fact that we are Christians should help us to understand the way things work in the universe because so much of it is shared in God’s Word. We should be the ones getting better grades in school and, as believers, we should be thinking critically, deeply and with common sense. We should be a formidable presence before the foolish and weak attempts of modern atheism. Any exertion to study the world and its elements will always end up as an exercise in futility without God being at the center of our knowledge.
Be careful when you give yourself to study and to learning that you do not fail to look through the lens of God’s declaration: He is the Creator and what He has created speaks of Him and all that He has done.
