On Christianity

By Billy Graham

This article was published June 3, 2014 at 1:50 a.m.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: I'm graduating from college shortly, and am planning to become a high school science teacher. But most of my professors don't have any use for religion, and they say you can't believe in science and God. Can I be a Christian and still be a scientist?

-- J.G.

DEAR J.G.: You most certainly can, and I hope you will, because God could use you to help others realize just how great He is, and how important it is to see all of life through the eyes of faith.

It's always been something of a mystery to me why some scientists reject God -- and even urge others to do so. If you look back over the history of science, you'll discover that some of the world's greatest scientists have also been devout believers.

Why did they believe, and why do many scientists believe today? One reason is because they became convinced it was illogical to think that this world -- with all of its wonder and intricate design -- could have happened by chance. Instead, every detail is stamped with the mark of its Creator -- God. As the Bible says, "Since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities -- his eternal power and divine nature -- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made" (Romans 1:20).

But most of all they became believers because of Jesus Christ. God has not left us in darkness. He came down from heaven and became a man -- Jesus Christ. God revealed Himself to us by becoming a man! Put your faith and hope in Christ, and then ask Him to help you begin to see the world through His eyes. In Christ, the Bible says, "are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge" (Colossians 2:3).
