Faith - the real thing

Carolyn Loomis sent me the following a while back and I just re-discovered it. I so agree. It's from a book entitled You Don't Have to Be Wrong for Me to Be Right:

When faith simplifies things that need to remain complex, instead of giving us strength to live with complexity, when it gives answers where none exist, instead of helping us appreciate the sacredness of living with questions, when if offers certainty when there needs to be doubt and when it tells us that we have arrived when we should still be searching--then there is a problem with that faith.
