RE: Faith and Evidence
(15-03-2015 02:13 PM)Full Circle Wrote:  The thread on logical proof for God spawned the following train of thought:

Faith= belief in the a abscence of evidence.

Revelation = In religion and theology, revelation is the revealing or disclosing of some form of truth or knowledge through communication with a deity or other supernatural entity or entities.

Salvation - “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.”
Ephesians 2:8-9

Salvation comes only through faith. If God reveals Himself to you, Faith is no longer possible as you now have evidence. Because you no longer can have faith you lose your salvation.

God should have kept quiet because be revealing Himself he simultaneously damned you.


Thoughts?

the Bible contains a clear definition of faith in Hebrews 11:1: “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Simply put, the biblical definition of faith is “trusting in something you cannot explicitly prove.”

So technicly you whould be right, but as they have no proof its fine. and then when they whould have the proof (beign in heaven for example), they are already saved
