Faith vs. Proof

Faith can be fragile, given all of the pressures and influences in the world. And it can even go away … either temporarily in day to day life or permanently (like with a lot of young people these days). But it is nice when people have it solidly … but I don’t see many hard-working disciples around these days as evidence that they do 🙂 Whereas “proof” allows a person to make a solid decision based on something that they come to see is fact. No wiggle room in their thinking as it gets challenged by all that goes on in the world. And when a person is solidly intellectually sure … great faith happens within them. And actually, the feeling of faith is given by God to those who put their decisional faith in Him. (I used “faith” in two different ways in that sentence … one is “putting trust” and the other is a feeling that God puts in our heart.) That’s the value I see in “proof”, and think that it is a foundational thing that everyone should have … proof of what the singular truth about life is. Otherwise they make up their own truth or latch onto someone else’s. And the world can’t bless a person’s heart the way God can. The formula is: the more unwaveringly sure a person is about what THE truth is, the greater their faith will be. That’s why proof is important … so that a person isn’t carrying any doubt in the back of their mind. Fortunately, THE provable truth is beautiful. And that’s why I’m so inspired to spread that message 🙂
