Christian belief is not a mere intellectual exercise. The heart has its reasons. The reasons of the heart come from our religious experience of Jesus Christ in our lives. Our belief is a free joyous grateful response. We have the privilege of calling Jesus Christ a friend. However, this active experience is not just a private affair that has no effect on our lives. Our Christian experience leads to a liberating practice of love. It is not enough to say the words, we must live the life. We cannot be unfaithful to the essential message of Jesus Christ. We need a holistic approach to faith. If religion was intellectual only, it would be only an abstraction and a mind game. On the other hand, if it is only emotional, it becomes superstition. Christianity is a way of life, a commitment, an active involvement.
