Is it About Faith and Knowledge, or Rebellion
Unbelievers say that it is all about faith and they say that some have it and some don’t…and they don’t. Or they say that they have read the Bible and do not understand it and without full knowledge they will not proceed. This is not true for the unbeliever does many things on faith and without full knowledge.
For the unbeliever it is all about surrender and after surrendering it is then about faith. The full knowledge of God is only possible after coming to faith, for the scriptures say that it is the Holy Spirit that leads us to understanding and we receive the Holy Spirit only after we surrender our lives to Jesus Christ.
The following is a worldly example that demonstrates that people will do things on faith without understanding all the time; even things that could cost them their lives and have cost others their lives…the danger is real in this example.
Unbelievers fly in airplanes knowing nothing about how the airplane is able to fly or even how to fly the airplane themselves. They do not question the pilot in order to understand everything before taking off. If they should hear of a plane crash in which everyone was killed but the pilot, they do not ask each pilot after that if they were the one that crashed the plane in which he was the only survivor…no they just have faith that they will reach their destination safely.
The unbeliever does not want to surrender his purpose for his life to God’s purpose for his life. God says that if you will surrender to my purpose for you, than I will guarantee you that you will reach your destination safely. Is it about faith and knowledge, or rebellion?
