從聖經詮釋科學

原刊於BioLogos

“Why does it always seems to be science telling us that we need to change our interpretation of Scripture? Shouldn’t it be the other way around sometimes? Shouldn’t Scripture provide the lenses through which we look at the world?” I’ve been asked those questions by students, by pastors, and even by seminary professors. Sometimes the question has been even more pointed: “Has there ever been a scientific theory that you didn’t believe because it contradicted Scripture?”

I understand the frustration behind those questions, and I take them seriously. When we focus only on those historical cases where our interpretation of Scripture changed because of science (for instance, Galileo and the motion of the earth), it can feel like a one-way relationship in which science steps in from time and to time and dictates a new interpretation of some scriptural passages. But the relationship is not so one-sided. There are many ways in which, for Christians, Scripture provides the lenses through which we look at the natural world that we study scientifically.
