Faith is Evidence
Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.
The one major knock on Christianity over the centuries is that what we believe can’t be proven. But faith is evidence according to scripture AND everywhere else in life!
Physics, Thermodynamics, and Natural Order are so reliable and structured that scientists put the words “Laws of” in front of each of them. But the ones who labeled them did not create them, so who did? It takes a lot of faith to believe there is no one responsible for the intricate structure and order in the universe.
Faith involves hope & is used as evidence. Godless people don’t consider faith in God as evidence for his existence because HE is not what they hope for.
The godless hope God doesn’t exist, so their faith they use as evidence for what they believe is based on their hopes & how they want things to be. Ironically, their “facts” about how the world began can be dismantled simply by the idea of God’s existence. God’s existence can’t be dismantled by their evidence at all. Isn’t that interesting?
By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen.
We know how the world began because faith is evidence. And even the ungodly have to admit that because they use their faith as evidence it all the time.
Thank you for plaining telling us in your Word how the world began. Thank you that it is simple to understand and trustworthy & provides confident hope for me to trust in you in all things. I love you and pray in your Son’s name, according to your good will. Amen.
