Experiences of Christian Scientists in Churches and Labs

I’m sorry you’ve shared this experience. I’ve been called a heretic, I’ve been told I “deny the authority of the Bible” because I’m not a Young Earth Creationist, I’ve been asked if the university administration knows about my beliefs (they do, I was upfront about it in my interview). I’ve come to expect students to question my salvation on my course evaluations. The vast majority of my students seem relieved to hear that there are options for believing Christians besides YEC, though some prefer to have closed door discussions with me because they are afraid to express their questions about YEC publicly. I really want to be a voice in the church, but it’s not easy.
