I speak of the actual meaning of the word. If the church speaks of something else, that is not my problem.
Actually, I am an inquisitive student. But anyhow, a student CAN question the teacher, and a child CAN question the parent. And if the teacher or the parent is unable / unwilling to explain, then he loses the respect.
Show me a positive test, which confirms what you say about God, and I will eat humble pie. You see, I am wide open to consider real evidence. But hearsay and browbeating are not “evidence”.
Trust needs to be earned. If it is just demanded without proof, it is “blind trust”. And one mustard seed’s weight of evidence trumps a thousand tons of faith.
This whole “give and take” reminds me of an old joke. Two guys walk around in Africa, and see a lion stalking them. One of them opens his backpack, takes out his running shoes and puts them on. The other one laughs, and says: “Do you think you can outrun the lion in those shoes?” And the first one answers: “No, but it is sufficient that I can outrun YOU”.
