Yesterday, a Christian aquaintance of mine posted a FB link to a sermon with the following text: "Are u going to believe the facts, or the Promises ? NEVER let the facts override the Promises ! : ) Awesome teaching!"
The sermon's about Sarah, a 65-year-old barren woman to whom god promises a son. Of course, she doubts. Of course, she conceives anyway--when she's 90. The point is, the preacher says, we shouldn't be using our "human perspective" to discern god's miracles. If you're locked into the facts, you're locked into the natural. If you pay too much attention to the facts, you can't move to the supernatural, which can only be attained through faith.
Sort of a built-in argument against ANY natural fact or evidence. How can you possibly get through that wall of unreason? How can anyone expect to talk sense to anyone who says, "Ignore facts. Ignore your perception. Believe the *unsubstantiated* promises." http://www.oneplace.com/ministries/the-alternative/listen/sarah-the-doubter-god-used-part-2-295037.html
