Faith: rational

Faith is not blind or irrational.
Sometimes people say “you just have to have faith.”  Often this means stop thinking and just believe.


Certainly there are some things that will be mysterious.  Things we cannot explain or fully understand.

But to have faith does not mean that you park your brain and just believe.
In fact we are commanded to love God with all our “mind”.  This implies that we should engage our minds and think deeply about God.

Faith is rational.

right on Ben.

My next sermon title:

Why follow Jesus?
What difference does following Jesus make?

Peter I wish I could be there to hear your sermon. Every time I have heard you preach I have been ministered to by the Holy Spirit.
