Science in Christian Perspective

Letter to the Editor



From: JASA 16 (March 1964): 32.

As I read the ASA for September, 1963, 1 noted that it is somewhat difficult for the various authors to believe that the Bible is also a book on science. As you may have surmised, I am one who believes that it is. Some of the writers, as they commented on the theory of evolution, may have been unduly influenced by the phrase "the God of the gaps." God may have purposely been the God of gradual changes and also the God of the gaps.

In Richard H. Bube's splendid article, he at one point quoted a portion of Psalm 93:1, "the world also is established that it cannot be moved." He therefore believed that that statement ruled out any astronomical significance.

But when I looked up this Hebrew word for "moved," I found the' definition, "waver or be out of course." So this comment by David is really a scientific statement because it states, "That it is established that the earth will not wander off its course" (about the sun).
