Doubts, questions, uncertainties, skepticisms face every honest enquirer after truth. The capacity to doubt is one of God’s greatest gifts to us. Without doubt there would be no discovery, no progress; we would all simply accept what we’re told, and live comfortably with the status quo.
We don’t have to believe in any one else’s concept of God. Faith is not worthwhile if we are afraid to challenge our beliefs sometimes.
The Indian philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti said: “Truth is a pathless land. Man cannot come to it through any organization, through any creed, through any dogma, priest or ritual, nor through any philosophical knowledge or psychological technique.’’
One of the lesser known Biblical Proverbs puts it this way: “If you scream for insight and call loudly for understanding, if you pursue it like you would money, and search it out as you would hidden treasure, then the Lord will be awesome to you, and you will come into possession of the knowledge of God.’’
