I hadn’t leapt blindly into the dark but stepped into the light.

Christians are often accused of taking a “blind leap into the dark.” For me (Josh), however, I found the evidence for Christianity powerful and convincing. So when I became a Christian, I hadn’t leapt blindly into the dark, but stepped into the light. I placed the evidence I gathered onto the scales, and they tipped in favor of Jesus Christ as the Son of God, resurrected from the dead. Had I been exercising “blind faith,” I would have rejected Jesus Christ and turned my back on all the evidence.
