Faith requires suffering?, Tue, Jan 29 2013 #(120)

Dear Richard
Your talk-talk helps convert towards God. Faith in God is born in the crucible of suffering; experiences of subjection, humiliation, physical torture, burning. It can’t evolve from the crucible of pampering. You’re more of a crucible of pampering type of guy.

I am too, but it is possible for us pampering types to have faith; all it takes is some humility and an appreciation of the puniness of human existence.

Your Converts Corner page has a definite Messianic flavour to it.

Richard, you’re like a kid alone in his playroom, roaring on a rocking horse, and really believing that you’re leading the charge of the light brigade.
Richard F
