Men’s Knowledge “One day he (Einstein) was interacting with some of his brighter students about God and whether or not he exists.
Einstein then asked them this provocative question: “What percentage of the total knowledge of the universe do you suppose we now possess?”
The old physicist replied, “I think your guesses are high, but I will accept the figure of 2%. Now tell me, what are the chances that God exists in the other 98%?”

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.”
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. (Heb. 12:1-3)
