Faith or Fairytale: What do you Believe?


It seems that fairytales of magical kingdoms and Bible stories with streets made of gold, have become distinguishable only by the conviction of the reader. As an educator, I often stress the importance of using factual data. However, faith is not a source that can be "sited".

Whether you are a believer or not, faith cannot be proven, it can only tested. For those who believe, this concept is best recognized through scripture, "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." As eager as I am to get into a theological debate, I'll refrain and focus more on what I know from experience.
