The distinction between belief and knowledge. A study of, or a theory of the nature and grounds of knowledge especially its limits and validity. For study purposes here, the substantiation of doctrinal claims and concepts.

The Biblical balance between faith and knowledge which is critical to truth and justification. WOTM does not claim immunity from criticism nor assume automatic acceptance by its hearers. We offer good reasons for the hope that is in us.

Christianity can be supported by Scripture based on sound reason, and prophecy proved by history, or/and believed by faith, without proof. However, prophecy fulfilled is proof of God. Scientific knowledge is based on empiricism and theory. Theory is the act of faith without proof — a conclusion without proof. Empiricism is the view that the source of all knowledge is sense-experience or reason. However, reason does not offer absolute knowledge in any realm. Belief (faith in conclusions) therefore, is the best that any area of study and life can offer aside from absolute proof. Therefore, Christian presuppositions are no worse, but are better off than any other type presuppositions because the soul of man is at stake for eternity. We submit that the burden of faith (not proof) has the most merit even though it is the only non-meritorious concept. Without faith no area of knowledge can move forward.
