Leif Nummela: Mihin usko perustuu: järki vs. tunteet?
What is the basis of faith in Jesus? Apologists often highlight the importance of the rational evidence (such as historicity of resurrection), which stand also against critical analysis. A mere theoretical knowledge and an academic acknowledgment of resurrection as true, does not in itself constitute faith: faith produces fruit, so there must be some emotional motives driving the behaviour. This, of course, leaves as a question, whether the emotions are sparked by reasoning, or whether faith inevitably is connected also to personal experiences and feelings of having touched something Holy.
You are welcome to ponder these questions in the upcoming guild evening together with Leif Nummela. Mr. Nummela has been the editor-in-chief of a Finnish Christian magazine Uusi Tie and a Bible teacher at Finnish Folk Mission (Kansanlähetys) since 2005.
The event will be held at the association space of the Maari Building (Sähkömiehentie 3, 2nd floor, rooms 240-241). The program begins at 19:00, but you are welcome to arrive starting at 18:30. The evening ends with a free evening snack and a devotional.
