The new god, science, attempts to downplay or even eliminate both the pains and pleasures of this life. Its seductive promises cause you to hold out for some “pie in the sky” future that will free you from all pain and sorrow. Instead of seeing life's trials as something to struggle with and overcome, and in the process become stronger, the life-denying god encourages you to hate this life and look forward to a better life that's out there, just on the other side of the next scientific breakthrough or technological innovation. But how can this be true? Science has given you so much that improves your life! Except it doesn't and hasn’t because it's not Christ. Jesus is your strength and faith. He is the life-affirming God because Jesus is Life itself, and anything that is not Jesus is not God, and therefore cannot give you true life.
