Factual Faith - Belief Founded on Truth HTML version

Chapter 7: Final Thoughts
I ask that you consider the information that was presented to you in this book with an open mind
and to be objective about it. Coming back to the question of distinguishing between fact and
falsehood, I think it is clear from our limited abilities in the fields of science and many other
disciplines, that we are very far from knowing everything that there is to know. We listen to
people's ideas and views about subjects - you have also considered my personal views in this
book - but in the end you need to know whether the information that is presented by someone
else can be fully substantiated and/or trusted completely. Is the information that is presented to
you based on facts that can be proven as 100% true - leaving no doubt in your mind when you
evaluate the claims? Do these arguments have missing pieces that do not fit the claims that are
made, or is there evidence that would go against them? If this is the case, the claims are false
and not based on facts. If you are honest with yourself, it is necessary to ask these questions
when you have to face new ideas or views, and constantly evaluate those ideas and theories
that have been with us for many years (as our ability to properly evaluate them improves over
time). Be aware of the fact that people adopt many ideas and theories in defiance of the truth
since the alternative would not fit their worldview or the responsibility it would place on their
shoulders toward their Creator.
In your search for the truth I would recommend that you make your own personal study of this
incredible Book that the Creator of the Universe has provided for us to learn more about him,
ourselves, our enemy who is described as “The prince of the power of the air” and our ultimate
destiny as children of God. Ask our Heavenly Father to open your eyes, so that you can
understand his Word and to reveal the secrets to you that he has hidden away between the
pages of this incredible document. The Bible says the following:
Pro 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search
out a matter.
Pro 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise
wisdom and instruction.
Job 32:8, 9 But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth
them understanding. Great men are not always wise: neither do the aged
understand judgment.
