"I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace.
In this world you will have trouble but take heart, I have overcome the world!"
John 16:33

Science in the Holy Bible

1. Individuals Can't Count All the Stars

Past science said that we had only 1,100 stars! As modern astronomy catches up to the Bible we now know that there are more than 7 Septillion stars in the known universe. The number of stars can’t be counted just as the tiny individual grains of sand.

"As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured…”

Jeremiah 33:22

2. Earth is a Circular Sphere

Many religions and science taught that the earth was a flat disk, but the Bible clearly told us that the earth was a circular sphere.

“It is He that sitteth upon the circle of the earth…”

Isaiah 40:22

3. Earth is Free Floating

While many religions and cultures said that the earth sat on the back of an elephant, turtle, or held up by an atlas, the Bible alone stated what was true. The earth hangs upon nothing.

“Hangeth the earth upon nothing.”

Job 26:7

4. Creation is made of particles which are not visible

It wasn’t until the 19th century that it was discovered that all visible matter consists of invisible elements.

“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”

Hebrews 11:3

5. Each Star is Different

It was previously taught that all stars are the same. Through astronomy we now know each star is different.

“There is one glory of the sun and another glory of the moon and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. “

1 Corinthians 15:41

6. Life of the Flesh is in the Blood

Up until 120 years ago, sick people were bled and many died as a result (i.e. George Washington). Today we know that healthy blood is necessary to bring life giving nutrients to every cell in the body. God declared that “The life of the flesh is in the blood” long before science understood its function.

“For the life of the flesh is in the blood…"

Leviticus 17:11

7. Wind Blows in Circles

  • Science Then: Wind blows straight

  • Science Now: Wind whirls in circles

“The wind goeth toward the south and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits. “

Ecclesiastes 1:6

8. Air Has Weight

  • Science Then: Air is weightless

  • Science Now: Air has weight

“To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.”

Job 28:25

9. Herbs Created for the Service of Man

Ancient cultures have utilized many herbal remedies. Today, modern medicine has discovered what the Bible has said all along, that there are many healing compounds found in herbs which service the body.

“He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle and herb for the service of man…”

Psalm 104:14

10. Happy Hearts Promote Healing

Science has now discovered that laughter reduces levels of certain stress hormones. This brings balance to the immune system, which helps your body fight off disease.

“A merry heart doeth good like medicine, but a broken spirit drieth the bones.”

Proverbs 17:22
