He also said, "Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed."

How many times did Jesus say, "He that hath ears, let him hear; he that hath eyes, let him see." He's not speaking solely of our natural vision, but our spiritual ones, as well.

Perhaps the eyes are wide opened when handling concrete, solid evidence, but the spiritual eyes of faith operate on an entirely different plane.
