Willing unbelief. A deliberate refusal to accept fact or truth presented, in order to serve some other purpose; usually selfish.
This is actually a beautiful picture of what we do in PR. This man had a miraculous encounter with Jesus. He didn’t know everything there was to know; he only knew the facts pertaining to him. He couldn’t provide them any more information to quench their insatiable appetite for “more,” but he testified to what he knew. That morning, he woke up blind and with no prospects for a better situation. But Jesus changed all that for him. Jesus, in a passing conversation with his disciples, healed this man because he was there. to show his power over the afflictions of the human condition. to teach his disciples. Praise God for object lessons!!!
