How cool would it be to see actual pics of the events in the Bible? Wouldn't faith be so much easier? Would it still be faith then? As when Jesus rode into Jerusalem and the crowds had huge expectations that He was going to take over as King, clear the injustice, and bring a new world order... many still have expectations that some "God" should get rid of the bad people, stop abuse, and make things all better here on Earth.
To some, God is so obvious in the creation He has made. Others struggle with why God seems so elusive and disengaged from our world and the disasters it brings. Even others have no faith in a God or religion and have shifted their faith to science. Many aren't even giving it much/any thought. I think Jesus came in a time when there was no technology for a reason.
While I often wish I could simply have an angel appear to me every night and tell me what I should do tomorrow, it's clear to me that God operates with a different plan. If He wanted to be obvious and drop down scores of lightning bolts, He could... but He doesn't. Regularly in the Bible, Jesus calls us to faith and belief in Him. There's something special about faith...
In my opinion, the question of God is the paramount question for us to pursue in this life... all other issues and quests become a distant second. What say you? What builds faith in your life about anything?
