Is Faith Good

What does a distorted mirror have to do with religion?  In the Book of Prophecy (Ofudesaki), God throughout the sacred book tells us that we do not understand him.  The following is from the Book of Prophecy:

Though I have gathered many followers,            

those that cannot understand reasoning (distorted mirror), will not do.

In this world, there are many people that cannot understand or refuse to understand new information that is given to them. In politics, some refuse undisputable facts and continue to support their candidates. In religion, it is very difficult to change the mindset of a follower, even when faced with factual data.

A distorted mirror will not reveal the true reflection of what we look like. As a mind that attaches to old beliefs may not be able to see what is true.  God warns us to understand whatever occurs.

This is a world constructed on reason

So I shall press upon you everything with the reason in verse. 1-21

Faith in religion or politics is not bad. Faith gives people hope and courage in times of need. But one must not abandon reasoning to support one’s faith, because faith without reason may undermine the truth of God.
