The word “argument” states the proof with which I support something. And the value of the arguments is estimated on the basis of personal experience, since the word argument comes (in the greek language) from the word “hand”, that is, something I have personally touched something with my hand.
And it is known that where we have put our hand, we know it well and we are sure of what we say and support. Thomas, after the Resurrection, asked to put his hand on the marks that had come from the nails of the cross and the lance, precisely because this would be his personal experience.
The arguments of others are good, but they do not substitute, during the difficult times, the value of personal and individual arguments that you gain from your own experience.
In the issues of living faith, the experiences of others, the arguments of others are didactic but can not substitute our personal responsibility.
Only the personal experience, the sign left on your body and soul by a circumstance, only this sign can fill you with substantial and irrefutable arguments in your daily struggle not only to act right but also to preserve your faith active, your speech alive and the years of your life fruitful and oriented to the search for truth but also fruitful.
