Faith

I've been reading, Institutes of the Christian Religion, by John Calvin. This passage explained to me how so many seemingly intelligent people deny the word of God and even deny that there is a God.


"But it is foolish to attempt to prove to infidels that the Scripture is the Word of God. This it cannot be known to be, except by faith. Justly, therefore, does Augustine remind us, that every man who would have any understanding in such high matters must previously possess piety and mental peace."

Your thoughts?

Jesus said the same thing "Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces" I listened to someone explain their moment of decision to me "I went to church and nothing made sense it was all foolishness I never understood any of it. Then all the sudden I understood and everything became as clear as glass" I think this was proof that if you apply a little faith God will multiply it many times.

At the risk of a side track I hope you weathered the storm ok Calvin.

The storm went far enough west of us to not be a problem except on the beaches.
