I don’t have, “blind faith.”

A lot of people mistake faith to be a blind belief in something. Something you believe with no reason. This is contrary to what the Bible teaches us. We are to examine ourselves and be knowledgeable about what we believe, and be ready to answer the questions people may have for us. 
-The Bible tells us to “examine everything carefully” and to believe only that which is actually true (1 Thessalonians 5:21, Colossians 2:4). 
-The Bible commends the people in the city of Berea for verifying that the words spoken by the apostle Paul were actually true (Acts 17:11). 
-God desires that we use our minds and not just our hearts (Matthew 22:37). God says, “Come now, and let us reason together” (Isaiah 1:18). 
-The Bible exhorts Christians to have answers for people with questions (1 Peter 3:15). 
-God desires all people “to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4).
If you would describe your faith as, “blind faith,” then I would encourage you to strengthen your faith by asking yourself why you believe what you believe is true. There is evidence in almost every direction you look! 

 

I don’t have enough faith for evolution. 

Nobody would believe that Windows 7 is the result of chance, but many believe that the human brain that created Windows 7 is the result of chance.
They will sometimes say, “Well, we didn’t start off this complex. We started off as a simple-cell, then slowly became more advanced.” 
Years ago, microscopes weren’t nearly as good as they are now. The cell used to look like a blob and it was easy to think that a blob could come about by accident. We have better microscopes now. According to Michael Behe, a biochemist, a cell is run like a really a big city with freeways to deliver nutrients and garbage to their destinations. 
Here is a so called, “simple cell” that used to look like a blob under old microscopes. Now, we know better than to call them simple. Who knows, with future technology, we’ll probably find out it is even more complex than this! 
I don’t have enough faith to believe this happened by chance, without an intelligent mind to create it. Not to mention that life somehow magically came from non-life. 

 

Scripture got it right….again. 

The most recent estimate of stars in the universe is 300 billion trillion. That’s a 3 followed by 23 zeros. (The number is constantly growing as we find more). 
Fourteen billion years (the evolutionists theory of how old the universe is) isn’t nearly enough time to explain so many stars, unless it was an everyday occurrence, which we do not observe. 
Save yourself the headache and stick with Gods Word which is unchangeable. Secular scientists will catch up eventually…. 

 

Blind faith?

Christians as a whole, usually have this notion that we are to have, “blind faith.” Or that we are to blindly follow Christ. Because of this common misconception, Christians often feel inadequate when their faith is challenged.  They are mocked because when they are asked why they believe in Jesus, they just say, “I have faith.” Many Christians aren’t properly prepared to give an answer to those who ask about what they believe (1 Peter 3:15).

God does not expect us to follow Him blindly or to abandon intellectual thinking or science in order to follow Him.

-The Bible tells us to “examine everything carefully” and to believe only that which is actually true (1 Thessalonians 5:21 NASB; see also Colossians 2:4).

-The Bible commends the people in the city of Berea for verifying that the words spoken by the apostle Paul were actually true (Acts 17:11).

-God desires that we use our minds and not just our hearts (Matthew 22:37). God says, “Come now, and let us reason together” (Isaiah 1:18).

-God desires all people “to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4).

I challenge every Christian out there to ask yourself, “Why am I a Christian? Do I really believe what I say I do? Why did I choose Christianity over another religion? Could I defend my position against Mormonism, JW, Buddhists, ect…”
