faith

March 30, 2012

Talking to my dear friend, Lisa, we got on the topic of confronting circular conversations in regards to a person’s belief about God. Sure there are facts, rational ideas, historical documents and artifacts, and personal experiences to back up what people believe (those who believe and those who don’t); but, in the end, it boils down to your personal faith.

Faith according to Webster is:

1. a : allegiance to duty or a person : to one’s promises : sincerity of intentions
2.  : belief and trust in and loyalty to God : belief in the traditional doctrines of a religion b : firm belief in something for which there is no proof : complete trust
3.  something that is believed especially with strong conviction; especially : a system of religious beliefs

According to the Bible (which I believe as the Word of God), this is the definition of faith:

Hebrews 1:11

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”

So, when it comes down to it, you can go round and round with someone about what they believe about God, but in the end– it’s all a matter of faith. And faith is not always based on rationality.
