Joel Okamoto

It might be said that many Christians don’t know enough about science, but what non-scientist does? We could be better informed about science, but our theology should also be adequate to deal with the assumptions, methods, and findings of modern science. For example, before we worry whether science has disproved the existence of God, we should be clear about what we mean when we confess our faith in God and what we are doing when we confess that He created all things “out of nothing.” In this workshop we will explore some theological topics that a scientific age make important for Christians and their lives, including God, creation, human creatures and the Scriptures.
