There are a lot of different reasons why people believe the things that they do. Some of us adopt our beliefs because they are the beliefs of our culture, our family, and our time. Others may choose to base their beliefs upon what makes them feel good, or what best suits their preferences, or upon a “holy book” or religious teacher. Whatever the founding reasons may be, something is only worth believing if it is rational, supported by evidence, and if it best explains all the data.
With that in mind this week, we take a look at one of the greatest questions that humanity faces. Does God exist? And if you say He does, why do you choose to believe that?
A belief that isn’t rational, supported by evidence, and doesn’t explain all the data is a belief that isn’t worth having. Take some time this week to assess why you believe the things that you do, and to begin researching the why behind your what.
