Reflection for the Week - April 20

Christians can no longer do theology from the Bible and ancient culture alone, but also have to consider scientific claims, especially when interpreting Genesis 1-3. What is the force of genes, cells, amino acids, proteins, etc. for theology? Many Christians say: Nothing. But, at worst this is reductionistic, claiming the Bible alone is their theological resource, and at even worse, it is blindness to the grandeur of the natural world informer and its implications for understanding God.
