There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures.

(2 Peter 3:15-16) ESV

We’re going to pin down a way to refer to two major opposing ideologies. You’ve heard them referred to as science vs. religion, science vs. faith, fact vs. faith for example.
