What does it mean to fully believe?
John 3:16-21. God so loved the world that he gave His only Son
“… So that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.”
Can we fully believe something without knowing something? When we examine what believing means, it is a deliberate act. It’s hard to imagine that someone believes something only by accident; thus, fully believing requires that a person has gained insight into something, and judges that insight to be so, therefore, the manifested action is to believe that thing.
So if we want to claim that we fully believe in the True Good, then doesn’t that mean that we should act in accordance to our insight of what the True Good could be?
These days, we are prone to use words without realizing the gravity of the words’ meaning. Saying “I fully believe you” is such a weighty statement; it is a synthesis of both reason and faith.
