What Are You Admitting?

Almost everybody knows enough for ordinary purposes. Almost everybody believes enough. But few admit as much as they know or as much as they believe. It is strange psychology which moves one to believe things he does not know and to know things he hesitates to believe and act upon. Stranger still is the perverse disinclination to admit those desirable things which one not only believes but knows. "It is too good to be true," is the old saying.

The unsuspected strength of belief comes out in the well-known dialogue between Jesus and the father of the desperately ailing youth. When the anxious parent supplicated, "If thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us," Jesus hopefully responded, "If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth." Straightway cried out the father, "Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief." The boy, when Jesus commanded the evil spirit to come out of him, was restored.
