Is the Christian faith a blind faith?

 

Faith is a response to evidence, not a rejoicing in the absence of evidence.” — John Lennox

Many convince themselves that believing in the God of the bible requires disconnecting their brain from any intelligent reasoning – even accusing the Christian that their faith is blind. This could not be further from the truth. The historical accuracy of the bible is increasingly being confirmed through archaeology. The evidence for the life, death and resurrection of Jesus would stand it’s ground in any courtroom. Even science which still can’t give an adequate explanation for the origin and complexity of life expects a certain level of faith to fill the holes in the evidence it provides.

 

In the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Romans he said…"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse." (Rom 1:20)

 

May your faith be evidence based this day.
