A People of Faith
From the beginning to the end of Scripture, we are told--FAITH-- is the basis of relationship with our Creator. We are to believe—to trust God. We exercise faith all of the time. We do it when we go to our doctor, pick up a prescription or purchase food at our local grocery store. We believe that these people are trustworthy.
Richard Dawkins, professor at Oxford University and author of The Blind Watchmaker, has made the statement that faith is "one of the world's great evils, comparable to the smallpox virus, but harder to eradicate."
If Dawkins had thought for a moment, he would have realized that this statement is nonsensical. He operates on a faith system also. He believes that he is a product of chance plus time. In fact he is staking his soul on it. Does he realize this statement applies to his own self?
What does reality teach us? Studies have proven time and again that people of faith (those who practice their Christianity) are happier, live longer, have better health and their lives are more satisfying.
The ethic of the believer is noted by the atheist. Who wouldn’t want a pious man handling their money, overseeing their health or selling them an automobile? Someone noted that “if your automobile broke down in a crime-ridden neighborhood, wouldn’t you feel better that the gang of young men approaching you just came from a Bible study?”
Without faith life wouldn’t be worth living. Hope springs from our faith and that gives us the ability to deal with any of life’s troubles. Yes, we are a people of FAITH, and that is a gift from above.
