Listen to the Podcast: Hebrews 11:4-6, February 13, 2005
Ours is not a blind faith. Rather the Bible makes sound and logical arguments for the faith. The Bible is a book of truth, the truest book there ever was but it is not just a book of historical facts, stories, commands and truth assertions. It is a book of reason. I heard John Piper make this point and the excitement of such an idea makes me hunger to understand every sentence, even every word in the Bible. There is great reason behind why verse 6 says that it is impossible to please God without faith. The most marvelous truth is why God, by the logic of His complete and utter self-sufficiency, must be a rewarder--overflowing with Grace.
Listen to hear also about Abel and Enoch and about his kid Methuselah too.
