The Five-Letter-Word, Part 3


Wouldn’t it be nice if “having faith” was simply a matter of choosing what to believe?

It’s not enough to merely believe something.

It’s not even enough to believe in something.

The only authentic and dignified faith is a faith that stands for something.

  1. I try to keep an open mind, but I’m not even sure I know what that is, much less believe it. I recall over 20 years ago writing about trying to make up my mind about many things. That part of me will not change, but I don’t think the core me has ever changed much, for better or worse. Like Popeye, I am what I am and that’s all that I am. Been on both sides of the ethical (morality) fence in my time. Sometimes, I’ve noticed that the fence moved when I did not. Subjective?
