Faith in Search of Understanding

May 25, 2012

I believe in God because, like most people before they invent reasons for disbelieving, I find it much more reasonable to believe than not to believe. This is the ancient order – faith in search of understanding. Authentic Christian apologetics does not pursue the goal of faith-compelling reasons for believing but frankly the aim of removing obstacles to listening to the Word and of encouraging the perseverance of believers. Faith comes by hearing the Word of God, not in response to arguments.
