However, where do you find that in the Bible?
Eldensword wrote:The evidence is given when it is not demanded.
Eldensword wrote:Perspective is everything in this argument and journey. The point of faith is that, if we humbly stop demanding "proof" and just believe, we are rewarded with the answers in our hearts.
Eldensword wrote:Your staunch, logical mind may save you from ridicule from other people, but who cares? Live for 80 years with your arms crossed and your nose up at the idea of God to avoid being laughed at? It comes down to a dysfunctional relationship with "authority", first of all. Secondly, it comes down to uncrossing your arms, relaxing, breathing in life and asking, humbly, to receive the truth.

Eldensword wrote:you need to look no further than the question, "What proof do you have that God DOESN'T exist?" - With that question you can follow your nose...Quantum Mechanics, not jiving with the Laws of Nature and so on. There's a hexagon on the surface of Saturn. Can you prove it? You can scour the internet and find pictures, articles and theories but even the most brilliant minds on the planet can theorize. There's no proof of it being this or that. Just like gravity, time and now even Einstein's Theory of Relativity is being challenged by more and more groups as "disprovable". As science advances, it moves to disprove "facts" all day, every day.

Eldensword wrote:Again, faith isn't for everyone. But ironically, most people change their minds at death's door. Maybe you will!
