Science and the Bible

By Greg Laurie



“I have made the earth, and created man on it. I—My hands—stretched out the heavens, and all their host I have commanded.”

—Isaiah 45:12



Some people believe that science and the Bible contradict each other, but that is not necessarily true. Over the years, people have scoffed at the Bible, claiming it wasn’t scientific. They’ve said that people who believe the Bible are fools.


However, it was the Bible that told us the Earth is round, not flat, which many of the experts believed at one stage in human history. Isaiah 40:22 says, “It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.” (NKJV).

The Bible also told us the stars in the sky were innumerable (see Hebrews 11:12) when astronomers said that was ridiculous. They claimed they could count the stars. Yet as they acquired more powerful telescopes, they had to keep adding to their numbers.

The Bible tells us that God stretched out the heavens into a limitless expanse, which we can never measure, and He filled it with stars as numerous as sands on the seashore. And modern science confirms this is true.


The Bible says that “by faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible” (Hebrews 11:3 NKJV). Everything we look at consists of protons and neutrons and electrons. So, it was the Bible that told us the things we see are made of things we don’t see.


In many ways, the Bible has been ahead of science. However, the Bible is not a scientific textbook. The objective of Scripture is not to tell us how the heavens go but how to go to Heaven and how to know God.


I believe the Bible is the Word of God and that it’s true because science confirms it.

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
