For this reason, it is a mistake to argue that all those who believe in the Bible as the inspired Word of God, who take the intended literal meaning of the Genesis authors at face value, or who actually believe that the biblical stories of fantastic miracles really did happen as described, believe such things based on blind faith in the supreme authority of the Bible alone – without any outside empirical evidence or basis for a truly rational faith in such fantastic things.
Sean, read the Bible. Everyone who Christ heals has faith prior to being healed, prior to any outside empirical evidence. By your own admission this is blind faith, and yet this is what Christ gives them credit for.
Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ. - Romans 10:17
