on faith and rationality.

If you weep for the dead and dying, you long for immortality.  For what rational person, fully healthy and fully alive, wouldn’t thirst with every fiber of her being for a second more, and so on and so forth for every second thereafter?  But surely only a God could make immortality a reality.  Who else has the power to reverse entropy and all of the laws of physics that imply it?  In short, if you weep for the dead and dying, you long to believe there’s a God who can and will make all things anew.  So why, again, don’t you want to believe? 

"All those who hate me love death." (Pr. 8:36)


"Well, I want to believe, but God hasn't made himself known to me." 

And you think that the condition of your soul is such that if God exists you'd be the first person whom He'd make himself known to? Perhaps you don't know yourself as well as you think you do. 

"Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God."
