True Science Has Always, Eventually, Neutralized "Science Falsely So Called"

Truth will survive forever ... Error shall cease to be.

"Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God." 2 Thess.2:4.

The word, "Science", from the Latin "scientia", means "to know". Webster's first definition of the word is, "Knowledge obtained by study and practice". That meaning and definition is exactly the same as the word's use in the Bible. It is only used twice, once in the Old Testament and once in the New Testament. The prophet Daniel used it in Dan.1:4 in reference to a "certain" few of the captured Jews in Babylon who were exceptionally knowledgeable and "skillful" in many areas of "science". The King of Babylon wanted to teach them the Babylonian language so he might use their rare knowledge and "understanding" to strengthen his Babylonian Empire. Daniel lauded those Jewish scholars "Children .... well favoured, and skillful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability in them to stand in the king's palace, and whom they might teach the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans." Dan.1:4.

The second and last use of the word "science" is found in the New Testament where the Apostle Paul was cautioning young Timothy to be faithful to all he had learned about the holy things of God. And not become caught up in the "profane and vain" claims of the opponents of Christ and Christianity, by use of unscientific and false theories which contradicted true knowledge (science). "O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called." 1 Tim.6:20.

So, there you have it. There is a True Science and a False Science. But, what would you expect of Satan who perverts God's word? Wouldn't he also pervert God's science... knowledge of God's universe? After all, God is the Creator of the universe and therefore of the Geometry of space and time. He is the God and Creator of gravity which bends space and time. He is the God and Creator of those mysterious "Black Holes" swirling around and warping vast beams of light. He is the God and Creator of both limitless infinity and the limitless finite. Each of which is perfectly, intricately organized and accurate to truth and reality.

True science is constantly correcting and realigning false knowledge concepts... "science, falsely so called". It seems an endless process.

So be patient, Christian, truth will win out and error and "false science" will be lost in the lost souls of the vanquished. Even they shall be forced to their knees with a final confession on their tongues that "The Lord, He is God", but to no avail, except that truth is forever justified and error forever banished.

Old Testament:
"I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear." Isa.45:23. 

New Testament:
"For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God." Rom.14:11.
