Are you certain of God or of your belief in God? The difference between the two is life and death. Bible scholars strive to find certainty, to explain and define the Word of God. Many who hold doctorates in theology don’t live lives inspired by the Word but lives that analyze the words.
“In the realm of belief, when I become certain of my (organization or) creeds, I kill the life of God in my soul because I cease to believe in God and believe in my belief instead.” ~ Oswald Chambers
