Atheist premise: How is faith a virtue? Isn’t it just an excuse for intellectual laziness? Bill Guthrie (atheist)
Christian faith is that substance that moves mankind from a wandering in hopelessness to an acute desire for knowledge. It is faith that permits man to observe the supernatural Universe around him and it is faith that inspires an inquisitiveness to know how this design manifest and who that designer could possibly be?
It is the man or woman who steps-out in faith and pursues our Designer with their whole heart that ultimately find that Designer and they are subsequently introduced to the secrets of the Kingdom of God through the Holy Spirit.
Though faith has been defined as “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1) – I prefer simply to refer to faith as “trust-belief” motivating action that concludes in verification for the one possessing a heart willing to internalize Truth.
