This quote is needed and powerful truth!

“All truth is God’s truth, and so Christians should not fear what science discovers about creation. …

“Though Scripture contains everything necessary for salvation, it is not an encyclopedia of all possible knowledge. Christians sometimes speak of Scripture as if it contained modern scientific theories or hidden knowledge of nature if interpreted correctly. Of course, it is possible for God, as Creator of the universe, to give us a Bible like this. But Christian theologians since almost the start of church history have recognize that God’s revelation has been accommodated to the understanding of the cultures in which it was written, which includes beliefs about the natural world.”
