Blind Faith

Blind faith is a controversial topic. It involves the one thing that unites, yet breaks groups: Religion. Thankfully, that's not the focal of this post.

Many people believe in God. And even if they don't, they probably do when certain things are needed. Like passing exams. Or the mere expression, "Oh My God!"...oh I'm sorry. "OMG!" Although, that's not faith. It's expression.

But why do people question the faith? "You can't see God! How do you know he exists?" Well dude, I can't see your brain. How do I know that it exists?! Pfft. (Okay fine the brain has been scientifically proven to exist and blah blah...but I didn't see his. Therefore he doesn't have one. If he can have that theory, so can I).

Moving on...blind faith works in mysterious ways. For example...when we fall in love, we'd do anything for the other person. Without second thoughts. It's quite stupid. We also do the same for friends...we do stupid things together.

As many people would see it all as a negative...I think it's good to have blind faith. If I didn't have blind faith in God, I'd have no one to make deals with. I'd probably actually gamble and lose money. If I didn't have blind faith in love, I'd not trust my family. If I didn't have blind faith in friendship, I'd not have the memories of those stupid moments, that now lead me to nostalgic thoughts.

Ergo, don't question faiths. Or I'll question your existence.

    The three thousand who were added to the church of Christ on the Day of Pentecost continued in devoting themselves to the apostles' teaching.

    Acts 2:41-42 So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and that day there were added about three thousand souls. 42 They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles' teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.

    These Christians devoted themselves to the apostles' doctrine.
    They did not devote themselves to the teaching of Moses.
    They did not devote themselves to the teaching of Abraham, Job, Noah, John The Baptist, the Roman Catholic Church, the Baptist Church, the Methodist Church, the Mormon Church, creed books, statements of faith, the Judaizers, the Watch Tower, the Pentecostal Church, the Pharisees, the traditions of men, etc.
