“Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence. … Faith is not allowed to justify itself by argument.”
I wholeheartedly—and even respectfully—disagree.
The Bible does define faith as “Being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Just a few verses later there is an even stronger statement about faith: “Without faith it is impossible to please God.”
I have evaluated the evidence. I have thought long and hard about the options. I can justify all of the arguments. And my faith stands strong!
God wants all who call on Him to grow in God-pleasing faith. So I’m really excited to dive into our brand new series called SEE THE INVISIBLE this Sunday.
I hope you can join me at 10:30am this Sunday at Calvary Assembly of God.
