Is it a Blind Faith?

Hebrews 1:1, lets us know that faith is more than a mere leap in the dark. Faith has substance and evidence. If we cannot prove what we believe then how can we convince others? I have heard people say, “Well Christianity, is the best possible solution.” I cannot agree with that statement or use it while teaching others. That leaves a possibility that Christianity could be wrong.
In our modern culture, truth is really a grey area. We just cannot seem to say anything is 100% true or concrete. Christianity has no such grey matter. The writers of the New Testament like Paul and John, seemed more than possibly convinced that Jesus was the Christ, they knew without a doubt that Jesus was the Christ. John gives his testimony in 1 John 1, that he actually saw and touched Jesus.
Living a faith that is the “best possible” solution is a dangerous place to be. God is not looking for disciples who cannot say with 100% certainty that God is real; He wants true disciples who are willing to worship Him in Spirit and Truth.
“Faith is the assurance (substance) of things hoped for, the conviction (evidence) of things not seen” (NASB with NKJV substitutes; emphais JN). The men of faith in Hebrews 11, did things because they knew God existed and God was the creator of the universe (Hebrews 11:3).
Let’s get rid of the this blind, leap in the dark faith and let’s be able to give a defense for the hope that is in us for anyone who asks (1 Peter 3:15).

Yes that means we have to be diligent students of God’s word! It is well worth it!

  2. Thanks for talking about the importance of faith and salvation! it’s such an important thing for believers. You might like my article on the Mission. Here’s an excerpt:

    “Is this all imaginative thinking upon my part? Or is this just the very blood and bone and sinew of the Gospel? Did the ultimate “Good Samaritan” come to earth so he could be horse-whipped to a pulp, spat upon, nailed to a tree, and crucified, just so that you and I could just have a good time of fellowship?”

  3. Thank you for your kind words. I have read much of your article and the thought is very good. I would possibly disagree on some of your conclusions and thought processes of some of your logic but the principle of the article is very biblical. It is hard for modern day Christians to see Christianity outside of the buildings. Thanks again for your thoughts! The bible is out only standard, not traditions, not opinions that you and I may have but what God has divinely given to us through His word. Jesus is the head of the church (the called out) and only He can be it’s “organizer.” Jesus gave us a biblical pattern through His apostles and their doctrine, which is ultimately Christ’s doctrine, on worship and Christianity. If we loose focus on the purpose of the church then all we can focus on is the building and our “worship” schedule. Thanks again for your thoughts!
