A cynical young medical student one day confronted his pastor: “I have dissected the human body,” he announced, “and I found no soul.”
The pastor said, “That’s interesting. When you dissected the brain did you find a thought? When you dissected the eye did you find vision? When you dissected the heart did you find love?”
The student answered thoughtfully, “No, I did not.”
The pastor said gently, “Of course you believe in the existence of thoughts, of vision, and of love. The human soul is the totality of a person’s existence in relationship with God. Just because you cannot locate it on a medical chart does not mean that it does not exist.”
Most people accept such reasoning. We believe with our heads, but that is not the kind of belief that faith in Christ is about.
Faith in Christ is more than mere intellectual assent. It is believing with the heart, with the will, with adoration, and action.
