Something of Value

  In my last blog I said what we individual and collectively think about God—the strength or weakness of our faith—is based upon the pillars supporting belief in the idea, i.e., the Bible and Church teachings. If either, or both, of these are becoming less credible in the context of what we know and understand today (Modernity), the “idea” formed from these sources weakens. Faith is impaired.
