"Higher Education is a Faith-Killer"

A pastor told me that, six years ago.  It was after I had graduated college, but a warning as I explored seminary.  I  remembered my father telling me sometime in the midst of adolescence how many Christians who pursued seminary education often wound up losing their faith.  "Very sad," I thought, and so did he.

But losing one's faith and losing one's certainty are not the same thing.  That's what I've been writing about so much, for so long.  I don't believe that faith has an opportunity for air - it cannot even manifest - until certainty is finally put to rest.

I am uncertain.

Ah, here is something that looks like faith...

“Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24)
