As much as I love Cohen’s Hallelujah, there’s one verse that always bothered me. “Your faith was strong, but you needed proof”. Seriously? It’s not how those words work!
If you require proof or evidence to believe in something, it’s called common sense, not faith.
If you accepted some fact after being presented evidence for it, it’s called knowledge.
If you believe in something despite the lack of evidence, that’s faith.
It’s not that hard to get those words right.
