Science and Spirituality aren’t mutually exclusive

You don’t need to be a science historian to recognize that the founders of natural science were believers. Here are some of the early scientists who believed in God:

  • Robert Boyle,
  • Antoine Lavoisier,
  • Isaac Newton,
  • Michael Faraday, and
  • James Clerk Maxwell, to name a few.

These men laid the foundation for modern science.

Their belief in God didn’t stop them from using their minds. On the contrary, it led them to investigate and come up with groundbreaking discoveries that transformed human existence on Earth radically…

CS Lewis brilliantly articulated the very reason why these brilliant believers committed their lives to science: “Men became┬áscientific because they expected Law in Nature, and they expected Law in Nature because they believed in a Legislator.”

Unfortunately, some latecomers like Richard Dawkins and Stephen Hawking didn’t see the wisdom of the founders.

Sadly, many people including believers were deceived and followed these scientists and drop their spirituality. They were told believing in an intelligent God who is personal is a delusion.

Scientists such as Dawkins and Stephen created doubt in many Christians. They made them question the relevance of spirituality. And as a result, many made a choice to only follow science assuming that the two are mutually exclusive.

I don’t blame them. The Church has been teaching as if the two are mutually exclusive. No wonder why many Christians walked away to never look back. They concluded that the Church is outdated and irrelevant.

We at AHM believe that the two complement one another. We need both spirituality and science to succeed in the physical and spiritual universes. John Paul II was right when he said: “Science can purify religion from error and superstition; religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes.”

We were created to rule and govern the universe representing God. He endowed us with a creative mind and resilient spirit. He wouldn’t have wasted His time and resources if we didn’t need the MIND.

For that matter, He gave us mind, not just spirit, because He wanted us to overcome the challenges we face. God as a CREATIVE Genius imparted to us creativity by giving us a powerful mind other creations don’t have for a strong reason. We are entitled and well-equipped to advance our civilization using our minds and tapping into our spirituality.

We strongly believe that the future of humanity, its survival, and advancements are in the hands of those who evolve spiritually. These scientists have a better capacity to envision, tap into the unseen world, and bring forth new discoveries to take us to the next level of civilization. These believers have comparative and competitive advantages over those who don’t believe in the existence of God and the spiritual world.

Yes, those who don’t believe in God can still do great things using their minds alone. We honor them, and we’re grateful! However, they could do even better if they complement their minds with their spirits. They’re leaving lots of unlimited resources and supernatural help on the table…

That is why we’re committed to integrating Science and Spirituality. Expect more blogs, books, videos, and programs on this in the coming weeks and months. To learn more about our BELIEVE Statement and how we plan to integrate the two, click here…
