The Evidence for Faith

I recently received an e-mail from a thoughtful listener who challenged my commitment to faith and God. “You’re a smart person,” she wrote, “who emphasizes evidence and logic. How then, can you give such importance in your life to something illogical for which there is no evidence.”

My answer described my experience getting involved in traditional observance of my Jewish faith when I was in my early twenties. When I began praying every day, and then observing the sabbath, my life dramatically improved. That’s the best evidence available, and it’s been demonstrated also by most of the committed Christians that I know who can also testify to the way faith enriches and improves their lives.

As C.S. Lewis famously observed: “I pray because the need flows out of me all the time, waking and sleeping. It doesn’t change God. It changes me.”
