It’s Time to Take the Blindfold Off of Faith!

by Adam Tucker

Removing the Blindfold“Christianity is a statement which, if false, is of no importance, and, if true,
is of infinite importance. The one thing it cannot be is moderately important.”
– C.S. Lewis, God in the Dock

Is Christianity true? I mean really objectively true. Why or why not? Can you or your congregation answer that question? I would venture to guess that most people cannot. A lot of people believe many things, sometimes correct things, for no good reason.

It’s time to put a stop to this popular notion of “blind faith” and thinking with our emotions. God has not called us to that type of faith. He has called us to a reasoned faith, a trust in Christ based on good evidence. I can honestly say that I’m a Christian because I believe it’s objectively true, and I want to help other people be able to answer that question the same way.

What’s the Big Deal?

‣As much as 75% of teens leave the church after graduating high school

‣The supposed incompatibility
of faith and reason is taught as dogma in our universities

‣Only 9% of professing Christians have a biblical worldview

‣Protestant denominations are shrinking while non-Christian religions are on the rise

‣“Tolerance” and “Political Correctness” are drowning out the call to faith in Jesus alone

‣The majority of Christians base their faith in Jesus on emotion and personal testimony alone

Socrates said “The unexamined life isn’t worth living.” I would say the unexamined faith isn’t worth believing. That’s where apologetics, or defending the faith and knowing why we believe what we believe, come’s in. It’s time to show believers and unbelievers alike that Christianity is true and we have reason to believe it! Are you in?
