"Evolution does not match up with the Bible." - Mrs. Bronson (Science Teacher)
Tom struggled with this phrase. He struggled with the group discussion surrounding Charles Darwin and evolutionary theories. Tom went to church and his class was aware of this. They asked him, "You don't believe in evolution, do you Tom?" or "Sorry, but isn't it kind of ignorant to think the Bible is true when science so clearly contradicts the Bible?"
Tom felt embarrassed and childish when the other students kept insisting science made faith in God irrelevant.
Tom talked with his girlfriend, Jen, who had a strong opinion and she said "You can't believe in both evolution and God. The Bible says God created the world in six days and then rested."
These conversations kept Tom awake at night. He started to wonder, "If I believe in evolution and science, can I still be a Christian."
