God Has Revealed Himself So That We Can Have Faith

“At the root of faith in God is the belief that the universe was created and is now upheld by a personal Being upon whom it is dependent. His transcendence, holiness, distinctness from His finite creatures is at the foundation of Christian faith. Faith in God is based on knowledge; the Christian trusts God because He has revealed Himself as one whom it is reasonable to trust.”  –Michael Stohlmeyer notes on J. Gresham Machen “What Is Faith” p. 65

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
