THE DIFFICULT JOURNEY

“Education, both secular and religious, has for many years given people easy answers to questions they weren’t even asking.  People accept the answers too quickly, and those answers sink in about an inch deep.  To make matters worse, some of those shallow answers become the truths that people spout for the rest of their lives.  This kind of easily won knowledge can pass away as quickly as it came.  Why is this?  It is knowledge we did not thirst for or long for.

Sometimes we use the easy answers to avoid the real questions.  Because we know the answer already, we stop searching.  We sit down and remain stationary rather than stepping into the difficult journey of hard-won faith.”
