Reasonable Faith

7 Jul

It takes a lot of faith to believe you have the ability to figure out what is true based solely on your own personal evaluation of the evidence.

In other words, if someone acts like some people take things by faith and others don’t, they aren’t really being honest. While there are many definitions of faith, one simple definition, is taking something as true on the basis of the testimony of others, and the fact is, we all do that and we do that all the time.

The question is not whether we rely not the testimony of others, the question is, whose testimony are we willing to trust?
