Have Science and Reason Made Faith Irrelevant?

In an age of science, technology and philosophical reason, it seems that popular culture bombards us with the ideology that faith in God is irrelevant.

It is postulated that religion’s leap of blind faith has no place in today’s world because if you’re “progressive” you don’t need faith, but rather, rely only on science and reason.

One reason for this prevalent belief is the failure of Christians to allow faith to permeate our lives in such a way to make it credible and powerful—not only to ourselves—but also to others.

Our faith is shallowly anchored in words without any application in the reality of how we live or what we love.

In fact, when Christians live in “religion,” devoid of a deep relationship with God, it’s quite easy to walk away from it and get lost in the jungle of secularism in order make our life feel meaningful.

I loved my career, money, and friendships with a passion that was unaffected by my faith in God.

It was like drinking salt water in the desert.

Faith is the key to a satisfied life.

We all exercise it in our quest for meaning, identity, hope, and love.

We all decide which set of morals will guide us. Does it make sense to place our greatest faith in a relationship with God, who loves us so much He died for us; or, to base our faith in people who have the same needs and flaws we do; or, worse yet, in science and inanimate objects which cannot love us at all?

Either way, our pursuit is by faith because none of us knows the future, in fact, even our belief in the past is often only what we want to remember about it.

Whose version of truth, is worthy of our greatest faith?

God answers this question: “I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose,’” (Isaiah‬ ‭46:9-10‬)

Science and reason may have some answers, but they cannot explain or satisfy our need for significance and love.

Our Heavenly Father loves us beyond what we can ever imagine; and when our greatest faith is in Him, we love Him more than anything or anyone and find our greatest significance.
