What if it isn’t true?
… [pause for a silent moment to let this reach the heart and mind] …
What if the Church really isn’t true? If you could somehow know for sure that it was all a mistake, a misunderstanding or delusion, and that God doesn’t exist, what would that mean? Would you change anything about your life? Would you have different priorities? What would be different?
I’ve meditated on this idea many times. It is disturbing and uncomfortable to consider. I have a pet theory that the height of our faith is limited by the depth of our doubt. I came to my own conclusions, but I’d like to wait a day to post them. I want to see what other people say first. I will post a response to my own question tomorrow.
What do you think about these five difficult words?
P.S. For simplicity, the assumption for this topic is that no other church is a true alternative.
