Wednesday quote: Unexamined Faith, a HaiKu and a question 

Nagging Question
If it all weren’t TRUE
Would you really want to know?
If not… then why not?

One person’s response…

“Faith surpasses knowledge in every way. It is the currency of my Father’s Kingdom, by which we ‘buy the truth’ (Prov 23:23)”

Knowledge vs Belief

How do you Know that what you believe is any more True ™ than what others in different religions or cultures believe and we’re raised with?

If you were born and raised in India or China or Iran, you might be Hindu, Buddhist, or Muslim. If you were born and raised in Japan or Africa, you might be Shinto or an animist. How do you know you wouldn’t be? Do you Know for certain that you would still be a Christian?

Is your Faith built on anything more, in the final analysis, than Faith? Does it matter to you if what you Believe is actually True in the True sense of that word?

What if it were shown to not be… would it matter to you? Would you even want to Know? What would you do?

  1. It is wrong to think of Africans as animists. That impression was spread by the missionaries who knew nothing about local peoples.
    But the rest of your question is still intact; are their beliefs not an accident or of birth?

  2. Faith is a lifestyle that pleases God, for without faith it’s impossible to please God. You see, I so much agree with you that faith has to be examined. What this means to me is that faith necessitates an understanding of what we say and do in the light of God’s Word. This is why Paul said by the Holy Spirit 2 Corinthians 4
    [13]But we continue to preach because we have the same kind of faith the psalmist had when he said, “I believed in God, so I spoke.” 2Corinthians 4:13.
    You’re deeply loved, highly favoured and greatly blessed.
