I realized in Church today what the word "faith" really means. In todays world of realists and skeptics, those who need to see and feel the proof that God exists, its hard to win in a said"argument" on the subject of God and his existance. I usually end up just changing the subject, unable to continue since I can't say anything because it doesn't have "solid" proof. I guess thats what makes our faith. Those who don't believe in God, they don't understand that it doesn't matter if there is a treasure trove of physical evidence. That isn't what our religion is about. If we based our beliefs off of everything physical, our lives would be empty. There is no black and white, our world is not like that. And by making it "if there is no proof, its not real", we are depriving ourselves of life itself. So what if the Bible doesn't work with what scientists have found. where we there? no. i suppose that is a contradictory sentance, since i cannot myself prove that God did exist to those who don't believe it, since i was not there either. The word faith means something that "is believed especially with strong conviction". Thats what the Bible and God and Church is really all about. Faith. Faith that there really is a God, someone who can love each and every one of us the same, know us all by name, be at each of our sides for our entire lives, know exactly what we are going to do and say and how we are going to react. God is like air, you can't see him but he is always there, and without him, our lives would be incomplete. I probably sound like a freaky religious freak about this, but while i was sitting up on the alter with all my friends who went to LA and Mexico, listening to the departing seniors last words before our congregation as Senior High Youth Group attendees, that very long revelation was bestowed upon me and my "i just got four and a half hours of sleep" self.
In the words of Albert Camus:
"I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't and die to find out there is. "
