Does knowing matter?

size_does_matterWell, it seems that size does matter…

My thoughts were going towards things like Creation Science and Christian apologetics, philosophy etc.

Do they matter to my faith?

Does the fact the Jesus’ life reflected over 350 prophetic revelations from at least 2,000 years before He was born?  Does it matter that some of them were so specific in nature as to the cost of betrayal (inflation and economic setting correctly determined) or that some of His garments would be divided by being torn and other garments would be gambled over because they were too good of quality to be ripped apart?

Maybe those things do not matter when we are falling in love with Jesus, but in those troubled times when doubt creeps in, trials keep us from our walk with Him and pain blocks out all recollection of what it means to worship, the mind is what reminds us of the things that matter most – the facts.

That is why Christian Science and Christian apologetics are so popular in their related ministries.  They take the emotion out of the equation and present the Gospel through intellectual understanding so that at the end of the day, one plus one equals two.

We all need to refresh the facts from time to time.  Not because our faith needs them, but because our walk requires us to know so that we can give a reason to ourselves why we have chosen to become followers of Christ.  The truth sets us free and our walk can go on through the trials and pain of life – in faith – because we have settled the knowing part.
