And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ. And as he reasoned ...
Paul, an intellectual giant of theology, a lover of God, and a lover of people, begins to reason with Felix and Drusilla. Our faith is exceedingly reasonable. That is why I welcome opportunities to go into high school classes, or college seminars to discuss the faith with so-called intellectuals.
The longer I walk with the Lord, the more I understand that our faith is reasonable in every way — logically, philosophically, scientifically.
The cover story in TIME magazine two weeks ago was about a six-thousand-year-old frozen corpse discovered in the crevice of a glacier in the Alps last summer. I chuckled my way through this very interesting article as I read that the scientific world was shocked to find out that the ‘Ice Man’ wasn’t bowed over with sloping forehead and thick jaw, as had been hypothesized and accepted as fact for decades — but that he looked just like us. He had lined shoes, sewn clothes, and sophisticated tools centuries before he was ‘supposed’ to have been able to do any of those things.
Prior to this discovery, ancient man was regarded as little more than a glorified ape at best. But the discovery of Ice Man calls all previous suppositions into question. If only these scientists had read their Bibles — they wouldn’t have been surprised.
Concerning the things of the Lord, Paul could reason with complete assurance, knowing that our faith can withstand any question and every argument.
