The substance of what is hoped for, the evidence of what is yet unseen and can become a commitment based on evidence. Christians have Faith for believing in the truth revealed by God.
(Hebrews 11:1, Romans 4:18–25,10:17, John 20:31.)
Faith is not a leap in the dark; it’s the exact opposite. It’s a commitment based on evidence… It is irrational to reduce all faith to blind faith and then subject it to ridicule. That provides a very anti-intellectual and convenient way of avoiding intelligent discussion.”
