Dave: Faith is blind! You just have to believe in God, even though there isn’t
Jeff: At least, that’s what a lot of people say.
Dave: But is that reality? Is faith really blind?
Jeff: Faith is not blind, in the sense that we cannot know whether or not our belief
Dave: It is only blind in that we have not seen the fullness of our belief come to
Jeff: In line for a roller coaster, nervous participants may not be certain or hopeful
for a safe outcome. But as they witness the evidence of safety
Dave: Like other riders, safety restraints, workers paying attention…
Jeff: Then their hope for safety is deepened. Their certainty in the ride’s
safeguards are made more concrete even though they haven’t ridden yet.
Dave: That’s the Biblical definition of faith.
Jeff: Hebrews 11:1 says, “Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of
what we do not see.”
Dave: That means we can have evidence and assurance of God’s existence, even
though we can’t see him with our eyes.
Jeff: So… Blind Faith? Not what you think it is.
