“Faith in God Never Adds Up to Gullibility”
by A. W. Tozer   
October 6th, 2013

Let me tell you of the dangerous logic of the gullible Christian who does not realize that it may be fatal to believe everything that happens to come along!

I have met Christians with no more discrimination than the ostrich. Because they must believe certain things, they feel that they must believe everything.

Because they are called upon to accept the invisible they go right on to accept the incredible. God can and does work miracles: ergo, everything that passes for a miracle must be of God!

God has spoken to man - therefore they feel that every man who claims to have had a revelation from God must be accepted as a prophet. Whatever is unearthly must be heavenly; whatever cannot be explained must be received as divine. The prophets were rejected, therefore everyone who is rejected is a prophet. The saints were misunderstood, they agree, so everyone who is misunderstood is a saint.

This is the kind of dangerous logic that can be as injurious as unbelief itself!

Faith is at the root of all true worship and without faith it is impossible to please God. But faith never means gullibility. The man who believes everything is as far from God as the man who refuses to believe anything. Faith engages the Person and promises of God and rests upon them with perfect assurance - and of such faith we can never have too much.

Credulity, on the other hand, never honors God, for it shows as great a readiness to believe anybody as to believe God Himself. (Eph. 4:14)
