Religion and Reason: A Discussion on the Place of Reason and Science in Ghana's Church

Sat, Apr 28. 2:00PM - 5:00PM
Capitol Restaurant, Cantonments
past over 1 year

Can Christians believe in God and also engage in rigorous scientific inquiry?

Is it possible to believe in the miraculous while also seeking answers in patterns seen in the physical and natural world? 

The Bible tells us in Daniel 1:17, "...God gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom: and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams." 

This verse shows us that both secular knowledge and supernatural giftings are God- given and God- ordained. Yet, there seems to be continual debate about the role of intellectualism in the Body of Christ. There is a perception in Ghana that religion and reason are dichotomous. As if, those who profess to be Christians can not be knowledge, well reasoned people who are able to balance scripture with secular subjects such as science and philosophy. This perception leads to a number of misconceptions about the ways in which faith intersects with secular knowledge.

The purpose of this discussion series is to dissect this perception and to interrogate the ways in which the church and church body can be in the world, and fully aware of the things of the world, while not being of the world, and therefore not confined by the tangible. The conversation will provide an opportunity to engage Christians of various backgrounds on the issue of religion and reason in the Church.
