Believing in Christ is Simple

An open door to Christianity. Believing in Christ Jesus is no more difficult than making an attitude adjustment or choosing a different view. This I have proved. If bowing down to the Lord requires hard scientific proof, then this is belief by force. Perhaps we actually reject Him. Atheism is fundamentally a power play, not a matter of evidence.

Science cannot prove the existence of things spiritual. We know this. Trusting Holy Scripture is as simple as believing who your parents are without demanding a DNA test. There is plainly no need to be afraid of being wrong. Concern yourself with things of greater significance. It is my testimony that artistic value is architected in the Word, value that cannot be mined in any other way.

Spiritual warfare begins after crossing the threshold. We struggle with spiritual immaturity as we discover that the Truth amplifies in practice and suppresses in sin.

“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparable great power for us to believe.  That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.” Ephesians 1:18-21 New International Version

  1. Children can be confident that they know their parents, usually. They grew up with them in most cases, they usually look alike. Those points actually are evidence. So there’s no evidence for God, and in your mind none is necessary. That’s probably cause for discomfort for you because you take the whole ideology for granted.
    But what do you say to those people who don’t take a spiritual ideology for granted?

    • Thank you for addressing this. Evidence is plentiful, admittedly, on both sides. This is because evidence is subjective. The human body has not the facility to provide absolute proof let alone identify it so we settle for consistency, repeatability, and so forth. As we interpret for ourselves, we apply questionable knowledge, values, beliefs, philosophy, attitude, etc. I assure you that I have evidence, but for me. Should we put a stake in the ground whether it be my faith or atheism, it is clearly not founded on proof. I think it is ultimately an issue of authority. Should we follow the Lord, the world demonstrates His authority, thus strengthening our faith even more.
