It is easy to think that something is true because we can prove its factual-ness. But a true thing has an integrity to it, inside and out. When a fact does not elevate to truth, it remains a distant ideology separated from my soul. As Eugene Peterson put it so eloquently:

“The reason many of us do not ardently believe in the gospel is that we have never given it a rigorous testing, thrown our hard questions at it, faced it with our most prickly doubts.”
