Second Hand Info

It occurs to me that almost everything we think we know about anything is second hand information. Without being there and/or experiencing a situation, all we know about it is second hand.This is true of the Bible. It is all second hand information…stories and thoughts from a distant past.

What we hear from the news media is for us to decide what to believe. You might say that we put faith into a certain source, whether it be a friend or newspaper or network.

Here’s the rub. Human nature is more prone to believe a human source rather than a spiritual source. Human nature will almost lay down its life to defend an earthly opinion, yet question a heavenly fact. In either case, it requires faith to accept and believe. Earthly opinions are temporary…heavenly facts are eternal.

Where do you think your faith investment would be better placed?
