FAITH is in GOD and in HIS WORDS.
There has to be a God, in order to explain the presence of the universe.
If not, the glorious appearance of the universe cannot be accounted for.
Therefore God is an axiomatic necessity.
If a fat boy has a reputation of not eating then it must be presumed, that he must be stealthily eating at night.
If not his fatness cannot be accounted for.
In the same way, one has to presume the existence of a supreme intelligence called God, in order to account for the universe.
This is called PROOF BY ASSUMPTION.
This is how a God is to be acknowledged.
This is proof by reason.
But then, there are those who do not require this proof.
For them, it is natural to feel and know the presence of God.
This is natural faith.
Then there are those, that no amount of convincing will make them accept a God.
This too is natural.
So all is in good order.
So God is not affected by your personal consideration.
Nor is he going to be displeased with you.
It’s your problem.
But sooner or later, you will have to come to terms with your maker.
The sooner the better for you.
Then the remarkable thing is, God himself has revealed his presence and existence via the scriptures.
God reveals the scriptures and the scripture in turn reveals God.
That is the irony of it.
Then the scripture is the spoken word of God, in written form.
God initially reveals himself via a scripture.
He declares, “I AM, I EXIST, I EXIST EVERYWHERE, AND I ALSO EXIST WITHIN YOU TOO. THEREFORE YOU WILL HAVE TO DISCOVER ME, IN YOU, AND EVERYWHERE TOO”.
Presently I exist covered in you.
Covered by ignorance.
I covered you with ignorance.
And thus you have a seeming ignorance of Me.
That is why, being ignorant, you seek Me, not knowing where to seek Me.
Therefore I reveal this secret in the scriptures.
That is where you have to explore to find a way to discover Me.
Since I am covered by ignorance therefore the only way you can uncover and discover Me is by the counter-opposite of ignorance which is knowledge.
That is by regaining your knowledge of Me.
This knowledge of Me, within you, will enable you to discover and experience Me as your own being.
With that the game of HIDE AND SEEK IS OVER to our mutual satisfaction.
Only this knowledge of Me, can remove your ignorance of Me.
I HAVE REVEALED THIS KNOWLEDGE PROCESS IN THE SCRIPTURES.
THEY ARE MY REVEALED OR SPOKEN WORD.
Hence have FAITH in my words contained in the scriptures.
If you live by them, they will elevate you to my status.
Thus the foundation of this faith rests on 3+1 pillars:
- Scriptural revelation.
- Experience of the holy.
And the 4th is a natural feeling for God, which does not need the above three.
Thus keeping the evidence in view it is unreasonable not to acknowledge God in the scheme of things.
