A Week’s Worth of Quotations Worth Contemplating

Aligning faith in God and certainty about what we believe and needing to be right in order to maintain a healthy faith—these do not make for a healthy faith in God.

And that is what I mean by the “sin of certainty.” It is sin because this pattern of thinking sells God short by keeping the Creator captive to what we are able to comprehend….

When knowing what you believe is the nonnegotiable center of true faith, questions and critical self-examination pose a threat.
