Things happen. That’s a simple, if understated, fact. What goes with it is that, most of the time, those things are out of our control. How we handle those events is what defines who we are, how others see us, and how we manage life.
Last week I asked the potentially volatile question, Should the Bible be proven? This week we continue with that question.
As human beings, we go through life with a desire, a yearning even, for something tangible, something solid upon which to anchor our positions. Worldviews are born from this search. In fact, the quest for tangibility fueled the Enlightenment of centuries past, whereby many endeavored to cast superstition out of the way in order to perfect our understanding of reality. That quest ultimately led whole populations to repudiate the Biblical truths they had, for generations, embraced. It continues even now. Our modern world, more so than any other period, has conditioned many of us to such an extent that the old mantra of “seeing is believing” has become a condition of acceptance.
