The Bible says in Hebrews 11:1 that ‘faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.’ A scientist exercises faith as he or she draws conclusions from evidence observed. Scientific evidence is seldom complete and irrefutable. Every year the scientific process leads to new discoveries in medicine, treatment of disease, and preventive health. The new discoveries unravel the old conclusions. Things science professionals so boldly advocated as worthy of their faith, and ours, are tossed aside in favor of something new.
It requires faith to draw a scientific conclusion. It requires faith to draw spiritual conclusion. The conclusions of the faith of a Christian do not unravel truth; Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever! While over time we discover deeper meaning and relationship with Him, Jesus himself is unchanging.
