I have come a long way since I first joined this forum. At that time I believed in God, but I was passionate for conservatism. Since then I have come to Christ and my heart is with my Saviour. He reveals himself to me when I am obedient. This I have seen in the way that only those who seek the Father through the Son can understand.
I like to clarify that reason serves faith, although I don’t deny the concept underlying my forum name. Jesus used evidence and the reason of man to bring them to Him, as we see in John 11:41-44 (and in many other verses of Scripture).
“So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, ‘Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.’ When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, ‘Lazarus, come out!’ The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.”
Of course, the faith of the Holy Spirit in our hearts comes before any knowledge or reason of man. This you know, and I thank you for reminding me.
