I need to stay away from the Faith board. This board is the trying of my faith - that is, if "I" had any to begin with.

One of my least favorite things to do is talk theology - "Knowing" God. Even the New Testament writer Paul seemed to correct himself at one point when he writes in Galatians 4:9

"But now that you know God--or rather are known by God..."

Since, as soon as we make God an object in our head and think we "know", we no longer know. We may appear to know in worldly terms and even excel at church. Those who think they see, don't. Much thinking about God doesn't get us any closer to the Truth.

So I'm backing away from the Faith board. I've dropped my concordance and uninstalled quickverse. I'm laying down both the unabridged and pocket versions, backing away slowly without making any sudden bible thumps.

Peace, Love, and Hope remain. I can't "get" them or "have" them but I hope they get me.
