This article is from a recently discovered sister in Christ, her ideas on this issue echo my own…it’s a great post that needs read and considered.
Remember the disciple named Thomas? He wasn’t with the others when Jesus appeared after the resurrection and when the disciples told him Jesus had risen from the grave, Thomas doubted. And now for all history people have (and will) refer to him as “doubting Thomas” even though he later believed. Thomas believed, but only after Jesus appeared to him and offered his nail pierced hands and his wounded side as proof.
Jesus told Thomas in John 20:29 “Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.”
Hebrews 11:1 also praises faith, defining it as “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” We Christians are supposed to have faith, not sight.
