Abstract

PIETERSE, André C. A case for consonance between science and theology: The cosmological Christ as the scriptural and confessional focal point for dialogue. STJ [online]. 2017, vol.3, n.1, pp.343-373. ISSN 2413-9467.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17570/stj.2017.v3n1.a16.

The purpose of this article is to prove through theological reasoning why consonance between the sciences is biblically, as well as confessional sound. The substance for the argument is found in the Biblical confessions regarding Christ, as well as God's Trinitarian agency in the cosmos. The insight that Christ is God incarnated, the King, Creator and Redeemer of the entire cosmos, have important implications for the current dialogue between the sciences. An analysis of the relevant texts and historical confessions should prove that nothing in creation, including scientific endeavour, could be excluded from Christ's interaction with creation. The Cosmological Christ is the Scriptural and confessional focal point for dialogue and consonance between the sciences.

Keywords : Consonance; cosmology; God's agency; science and religion; Cosmic Christ.
