I was talking with a friend the other day about the whole idea of the importance of being able to question beliefs, ideas or theologies that are passed on to us. He told me how he grew up in church and how he loved it. But one day in Sunday school, when he was about 12 years old, he asked the priest a question about what he was teaching. The priest just looked at him and said, “You just have to have faith!” My friend said that’s precisely the moment when he began to lose his faith.

In fact, this friend interviewed me yesterday for his own site. I’ll post this interview soon for you to see.

Obviously, the community that is assembling here maybe have experienced this kind of theological force feeding. Thankfully though, I think you all have discovered a way to appreciate Truth in all its forms.
