The Reasons to Believe #22 

Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from Charles Spurgeon. He said, "I confess that when I have to argue about the truth of divine things it is a dreary task to me....while they are wanting me to argue about this point or that it seems to me like asking a man to prove that there is a sun in yonder sky. I bask in His beams, I swoon under His heat, I see by His light; and yet they ask me to prove His existence! Are the men mad? What do they want me to prove? That God hears prayer? I pray and receive answers every day. That God pardons sin? I was in my own esteem the blackest of sinners, and sunk in the depths of despair, yet I believed, and by that faith I leaped into a fulness of light and liberty at once. Why do they not try it themselves?" 

Our Reasons to Believe Scripture passage for today is 2 Corinthians 10:5. It reads, "Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ." 

Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled "Faith and Reason" (part 3) from "The Handbook of Christian Apologetics" by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli: 

The act of faith is more than merely an act of belief. We believe many things---for example, that the Bulls will beat the Celtics, that the President is not a crook, that Norway is beautiful---but we are not willing to die for these beliefs, nor can we live them every moment. But religious faith is something to die for and something to live every moment. It is much more than belief, and much stronger, though belief is one of its parts or aspects.
