[. . .] [footnoteRef:12] [12: Forsyth, Robert. "Then a miracle occurs': the blessing and limitations of science A bishop looks at science from the viewpoint of the Christian faith." http://www.iscast.org/journal/articles/Forsyth_R_2006-11_Then_A_Miracle_Occurs.pdf (accessed March 20, 2013). ]

Science is a field that provides as knowledge about the simplest things but it also tells us secrets about the depths, structure and composition of the universe. It reveals the complex of human organs. Through the advancements in medical field science has been the savior of many of the lives. Previously, precious human life was being wasted due to petty diseases but now due the advancements in the field of medicine people can now fight dangerous diseases such as cancer and can get back to their life. Science gave rise to various phenomena that have benefited human life such as industrial revolution which in the times of economic downturn benefitted different states and got them out of the great depression. [footnoteRef:13] [13: Forsyth, Robert. "Then a miracle occurs': the blessing and limitations of science A bishop looks at science from the viewpoint of the Christian faith." http://www.iscast.org/journal/articles/Forsyth_R_2006-11_Then_A_Miracle_Occurs.pdf (accessed March 20, 2013). ]

There is no doubt in the fact that advancements in science have also increased our probability of harming each other. Science has led towards the invention of such devices that enable the human beings to harm each other in the worst possible manner. The devices used in World War II are the examples of how dangerous scientific inventions can be. But this is not the fault of this field. Science is a tool for increasing our knowledge and it's completely up to our perspective that how do we use that knowledge. Scientific knowledge works in both the best way and the evil way depending on how people acquire, anticipate and use it. [footnoteRef:14] [14: Forsyth, Robert. "Then a miracle occurs': the blessing and limitations of science A bishop looks at science from the viewpoint of the Christian faith." http://www.iscast.org/journal/articles/Forsyth_R_2006-11_Then_A_Miracle_Occurs.pdf (accessed March 20, 2013). ]

A lot can be said about the blessings of science and it is very obvious that science with its growing advancements and achievements will continue to facilitate human lives and it will make great contributions to the happiness and well being of humans through its achievements but it is also very obvious that as science continues to achieve new heights of technology and achievements human beings will also become more and more sinful. And due to their sinfulness they will devise new and horrible methods of inflicting harm upon each other with the help of scientific tools. [footnoteRef:15] [15: Forsyth, Robert. "Then a miracle occurs': the blessing and limitations of science A bishop looks at science from the viewpoint of the Christian faith." http://www.iscast.org/journal/articles/Forsyth_R_2006-11_Then_A_Miracle_Occurs.pdf (accessed March 20, 2013). ]

In addition to that the most dangerous limitation of science is that it has a great tendency of moving us away from God. This is the case with most of the blessings of God that they tend to move us away from the Supreme Being who created them. This is a fact that as the human empowerment over most of the matters and affairs of this universe and nature will increase they will forget God. This is human nature that an increase in power makes it easier for them to forget the Creator. An example of this can be seen in most of the developed nations who have acquired a lot through scientific achievements but in their prospect of reaching new heights of success they forgotten the Creator who have gifted them with success. [footnoteRef:16] [16: Forsyth, Robert. "Then a miracle occurs': the blessing and limitations of science A bishop looks at science from the viewpoint of the Christian faith." http://www.iscast.org/journal/articles/Forsyth_R_2006-11_Then_A_Miracle_Occurs.pdf (accessed March 20, 2013). ]

This I think is the most dangerous drawback of science. Science and Christianity share a complex relationship. Science deals with facts and due to this it cannot explain us the God's Wisdom behind most of the things. It sometimes brings people into a very compromising situation where they have to select between developments and sometimes it strongly supports biblical approaches. The impact that science has on people and their mind depends greatly on how people perceive it and tend to use it but it also has the tendency to have a negative impact on their mind as it provides people with great power and everyone cannot handle power in a positive way.[footnoteRef:17] [17: Forsyth, Robert.
