Our Faith is not Blind
There are 2 different kinds of revelation concerning the nature and character of God. General revelation focuses on aspects of God ‘s creative aspects, of Him being the creator of the Universe and all that is contained within it. Special revelation is different in that it deals particularly with the writings of the Bible.
Most of this blog will contain the type of information that is described as "general" revelation. The reason that I focus on several aspects of general revelation is to help you be assured that our faith in Christ is legitimate and rational in scope. Our faith is not a great leap into the speculation of the unknown. Rather it is a step of faith that is based on common sense. But it does require a belief in the supernatural aspects of the nature and character of Jesus Christ. I believe that the only way that he could have accomplished the crazy, miraculous, amazing things that he did was because he truly was the real deal, the messiah, the son of God.
Most skeptics cling to a worldview that only allows for “natural” occurrences. Any reference to things of supernatural origin is automatically viewed as irrational. Those who hold this viewpoint may be very aggressive in trying to tell Mr. or Mrs. Christian how antiquated our viewpoint is. However, the Bible is very clear to declare that the fool says in his heart that there is no God (Ps. 14:1). The reality of the universe coming into existence from nothing and also being so incredibly fine-tuned for life to exist actually requires an intelligent designer in order to make any sense at all. We should be quite encouraged by this and not allow the critic to impart much angst in our lives.
