Gold Coast Churches vs. Science. Given the local environmental degradation, what position will Gold Coast churches take on matters of the environment and global warming. What does the bible teach and what will churches propagate in regards to this debate. This topic is amplified by the growth of Pentecostal churches on the Gold Coast.



Gold Coast, 10 November 2013, (PressReleasePoint)

It is often assumed that the relationship between Christianity and science has been a long and troubled one. Such assumptions draw support from a variety of sources and has been confirmed through my various conversations with Gold Coast locals.

There are contemporary controversies about evolution and creation, for example, which are thought to typify past relations between science and religion. This view is reinforced by popular accounts of such historical episodes as the Condemnation of Galileo, which saw the Catholic Church censure Galileo for teaching that the earth revolved around the sun.

Adding further credence to this view of history are a few recent outspoken critics of religion who vociferously contend that religious faith is incompatible with a scientific outlook, and that this has always been the case.

In spite of this widespread view on the historical relations between science and religion, historians of science have long known that religious factors played a significantly positive role in the emergence and persistence of modern science in the West. Not only were many of the key figures in the rise of science individuals with sincere religious commitments, but the new approaches to nature that they pioneered were underpinned in various ways by religious assumptions.

There is a debate raging at present between Christians and scientists over global warming and humanities responsibility over the Earth. Given the extreme growth of medicine and sciences, it is interesting to see some parts of Australian where churches are actually growing in number.
 
Gold Coast Christian Churches seem to be springing up all over the Gold Coast, namely the central Robina and Varsity Lakes areas. It will be interesting to see what stand these Gold Coast Churches take against topics such as global warming given the increased degradation of Gold Coast Beaches and our beautiful coastline which is relied upon so heavily.
