Galatians 3:1-14 The Gospel according to the movie THE MARTIAN

In Galatians 3:1-14, Paul uses a lot of very complicated arguements quoting from a wide range of Old Testament scriptures. What does it all mean ? He talks about faith, but what does it mean to have faith ? What does it mean to believe ? How would you know if you had enough faith or if you were a real believer ? To go a step further, how does trusting in God connect to Human innovation, reason, and science ? How do faith and human initiative go together ? How do belief and science go together ? Today we take a fun walk through the science fiction thriller "The Martian" and find an incredibly helpful way to understand the story of Abraham and the story of our own lives as Human Beings who are called both to strive with passion for knowledge and survival - and to have deep faith in the promises of God - all at the same time.
