How do you believe in Jesus, someone who you cannot see?

I cannot see him. And there is no evidence of him from what I can see except from history and what people call the New Testament which I have read over many times and yes it is very beautiful and thoughtfully written albeit by men.
Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.
John 20:29

JLB,

Does that mean you don't provide evidence for your faith? Are there no reasons for believing?

“But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense (apologia) to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear” (1 Peter 3:15 ESV).

Our faith is founded on facts and we need to give reasons why we believe.

Or, am I on the wrong flight?

I was addressing his statement that said... “I can’t see Him”.

I simply stated the truth.

By stating this simple truth, by no means am I implying that we are not to give a defense to those who ask a reason for the hope that is in me.

You also stated some truth.


But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense (apologia) to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear”
(1 Peter 3:15

Thank you for that.
