Making a decision about faith is more like making a wager than like judging a debate, because in life — as at the roulette table — we have something riding on the outcome.

Sometimes a leap of faith is the only form of transportation. I think of a man who prayed for his alcoholic father for twenty years — but his father never changed. I am impressed by the humility and simple, straightforward nature of this unlikely media superstar and I have enjoyed listening to the positive, uplifting words he unapologetically imparts so prolifically in written and spoken forums. Want to Read saving….

One day he had been drowning in confusion; the next he was free of it. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. Some people want to believe in God and so they are more likely to do so. Instead of caring for this man and his son, they get into a big religious argument and grow defensive: Jesus began his ministry by spending forty days in the wilderness; after the resurrection he and the disciples spent another forty days waiting for his ascension and then the coming of the Holy Spirit.

Everybody has to choose a parachute. I want to read everything he’s written. Hoping can break your heart. Aceste lucruri fac parte din harta mea mentala, asa ca nu trebuie sa ma straduiesc sa ma comport intr-un mod care sa fie in conformitate cu gravitatia.


The butterfly squadron in my stomach went into action. To be is to believe.

Believing and doubting share the same inevitability, but they are not equal. Each house faces a test. Nicholas Wolterstorff, a brilliant philosopher at Yale, is the father of a son who died at age twenty-five climbing a mountain. I learned more from him than I could ever say. Evidence alone can- not clearly indicate that God does or does not exist. The priests take the ark inside and place it next to the statue of Dagon.

Then night falls and everybody goes home.

Faith & Doubt by John Ortberg

Letting go is always an act of trust. A mountain is a place of vision. And maybe it will be awhile before we feel at home. Some people believe that all we can ever know about our world is what we learn through science, and that if we trust in science, we will have to give up our faith. One of the dangers of preaching is that it tempts preachers to pretend they have no doubts and to settle for truthiness.

Nicholas Wolterstorff Mountains have always been God-places. Football has the two-minute warning. To spare the moms-to- be anxiety, the instructors did not use the word pain.

Wanting to Believe When people of faith are not willing to sit quietly sometimes and let doubt make its case, bad things can happen. His last chapter ‘why I believe’ was subjective and not convincing enough for me.


John Ortberg : Faith and Doubt | Victor Christianto –

Can I commit myself even though I doubt? Pilotul se intoarce spre pusti si ii spune ca el a trait o viata lunga si prtberg, iar micul cercetas are toata viata inainte.

Is it possible — maybe even rational — to have faith in the pres- ence of doubt? I’m not a fan of ‘Christian books’ but I picked this up because the concept and introduction seemed incredibly refreshing: You can be staying at the Ritz-Carlton but still miss your little shack if the shack is home.

Pascal was a brilliant mathematician. I live at the mercy of my ideas about the way things really are. Can such faith save them? He is witty, deep, and practical, juggling these well to make his sermons so good. It is hard v to live as Jesus would live if we do not share at the core level his convictions about the way things really are.

She names her son Ichabod then dies herself. I could not look at Laura and believe otherwise. Deeper questions are at play. They could live any- where, but they live in Michigan. But they still sit down in them.
