Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen. (Hebrews 11:1)
Faith and reason are not in opposition:
We have faith (for example) that Ron Paul will continue to uphold the principles of liberty. Why do we hold this faith? Ron Paul has reasonably proved himself to be a man who consistently upholds his principles.
The same is true of Messiah. There is plenty of evidence for His existence, His death and (yes!) His resurrection!
But that man should play the tyrant over God, and find Him a better man than himself, is astonishing drama indeed!~~D. Sayers
Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15
