Faith and Reason (Part 4) (The Reasons to Believe #21)

Released: April 3, 2014 By: Daniel Whyte III

Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from C.S. Lewis. He said, "If you had gone to Buddha and asked him: 'Are you the son of Brahma?' he would have said, 'My son, you are still in the vale of illusion.' If you had gone to Socrates and asked, 'Are you Zeus?' he would have laughed at you. If you had gone to Mohammed and asked, 'Are you Allah?' he would first have rent his clothes and then cut your head off. If you had asked Confucius, 'Are you Heaven?' I think he would have probably replied, 'Remarks which are not in accordance with nature are in bad taste.' The idea of a great moral teacher saying what Christ said is out of the question. In my opinion, the only person who can say that sort of thing is either God or a complete lunatic..."

Our Reasons to Believe Scripture passage for today is 1 Thessalonians 5:20-22. It reads, "Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil."

Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled "Faith and Reason" (part 4) from "The Handbook of Christian Apologetics" by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli:

Emotional faith is feeling assurance or trust or confidence in a person. This includes hope (which is much stronger than just a wish) and peace (which is much stronger than mere calm).

Intellectual faith is belief. This is stronger than emotional faith...
