blind-faith

Got this from Daniel Florien’s Unreasonable Faith site,

The Bible has a proverb against blind faith:

 ”A simple man believes anything, but a prudent man gives thoughts to his steps.” (Proverbs 14:15, NIV)

Don’t be a simple man who believes anything.

Don’t simply accept that the Bible was written by God because a man with a suit says so. Don’t accept an ancient rabbi was raised from the dead because it was claimed a few decades after it supposedly happened.

Don’t accept that all our languages came from God’s retribution for building a skyscraper. Don’t accept that the sun can stop in the sky with a prayer; that ax heads can float; that water can be magically turned into wine; or that the millions of species can fit inside and live on Noah’s Ark for a year.

Instead, think critically and use your head!

Thanks Daniel. I’ve added you to the blogroll.
