Don Carson on Mystery and Certainty

In quotes, theology on December 19, 2008 at 8:21 pm

“Christianity that is nothing but certainties quickly  becomes haughty and arrogant, rigid and unbending.  Worse, it leaves the Christian open to the most excruciating doubt when the vicissitudes of life finally knock out the supporting pillars.  The God of such Christianity is just not big enough to be trusted when you are up to your neck in the muck of pain and defeat.  Conversely, Christianity that is nothing but mystery leaves nothing to proclaim, and makes faith indistinguishable from blind credulity” (How Long, O Lord? 26).
