Why Do So Few Have Faith

Sometimes It's hard to understand, with the wealth of proof only a click away, why so few have faith. Anyone with a PC, tablet or smart phone can find a multitude of miracle stories or witnesses of God working in people's lives, from both Christians and Jews, online and at bookstores. One of my favorite things is to read one of these before bed.
  There are also biographies of the multitude of canonized saints. You may not know that in the Roman Catholic Church a person cannot be declared a saint unless there is concrete evidence of at least two miracles attributed to the saint's intercession.
   There are also the many witnesses  of the changed lives of those who have come to faith in Jesus and received the Holy Spirit. I am one of those.
  I recently read a compilation of several reports of Eucharistic miracles, fully and scientifically documented; and from recent times, not in centuries past.
  It's not that there isn't enough proof out there both of the existence of God and His working in our lives. I think that many people don't want to see the proof because then they would have to stop doing what they want to do and bow to the will of God for their lives.
  People will continue to write the books and post online; to put the proof out there for those who want to be saved. Are you one of them?

(For those who want to know some of what the Bible says about eternal life, see my post from 10-29-13.)
