Description

Many Christians today favour the approach of dialogue between faith and science. As Pope Francis writes, ‘all of society can be enriched thanks to this dialogue, which opens up new horizons for thought and expands the possibilities of reason’. After all, faith is not fearful of reason. It seeks and trusts reason. It values science for the simple reason that since there is only one Truth and since the light of reason and the light of faith both come from God, they cannot contradict each other. The Christian Church’s position, therefore, is that she has no wish to hold back the marvelous progress of science. Indeed, the pathway of dialogue is needed, not least because it is linked to the promotion of peace and harmony in the world.
