We put our faith in baskets full of things we don't understand at all, daily. Electricity, computers, even airplanes. We do that because we have come to trust the things that science provides for us. I think the belief is something like, "I don't understand it, but all these smart people do, and so I'll trust that they know what they're doing."
Trusting God is much more difficult because no man has seen Him. He can't be verified in a test tube. It is a very, very hard thing for some people to manage. Of course, many people don't try at all. It sounds like the sorts of folks you meet on airplanes -- frequent fliers who don't give it a thought, educated, knowledgeable people who understand and appreciate what's going on, and, of course, the white-knuckle fliers. Join the congregation of Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte, Ky as we fly with the white-knuckle fliers.
Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte, Kentucky, was built on the casting floor of a 19th Century iron blast furnace. We use "The Casting Floor" as an image for the power of the Spirit to form us. Visit us at http://communitypresbyterian.org.
