People demand proof for God. But the infinite personal God is not like an impersonal finite object

People demand proof for God. But the infinite personal God is not like an impersonal finite object. The relationship of faith in God is one of personal trust; it’s not like proving water boils at 100%. In a relationship such as marriage, trust is essential. There are good reasons to trust my wife but to demand proof of her fidelity would not be a sign of a healthy trusting relationship.

Faith in the God of the Bible is not without its evidences and these should be sought out just as I should get to know whether a potential spouse is trustworthy. But relationships are built on trust not continual ‘proof’. The reasonableness of the trust that is placed in a person grows in the context of the relationship.
