Joseph Pearce on Faith and Fiction for The Imaginative Conservative.
It cannot be denied that the devil has had great success in convincing many people that faith and fiction are synonymous. In our materialistic age, many believe that faith in God is no more “real” than fiction. The problem is that such people do not really understand faith, fiction, or reality. They believe that reality is confined to the purely physical and that there is no reality beyond the physical. The cosmos is comprised of three dimensions, which we perceive with our five senses. And that’s all there is. Anything else is purely fiction. As we shall see, however, such skepticism can be exposed as false merely by sticking to the cold hard facts.
