My pastor friend Brad Hightower started blogging again. His post on Steven Hawking is interesting worth a quick read. He’s starting to take his head out of the sand when it comes to how religion views politics and science. I like where he is heading. I particularly like his take on the creationist ‘God of the gaps” in his Hawking post.
No one who actually has faith has faith on the basis of a God of the gaps. People do not hold faith in order to answer a question of origins or to fill in some cosmological gap. People come to faith in response to a moral and spiritual sense of life.
The faithful don’t think about the God of the gaps, unless of course they are in a evolution debate with a scientist, then that all I hear. I hope he addresses the obvious problem with his logic. Could it be that Christians are disingenuous?
