A Challenging and Humorous Read

A Challenging and Humorous Read

Ever a work in progress, even the truest gentleman never reaches an apex. Imperfect, a gentleman appeals to a higher power for guidance and assistance. It matters little what, or who, exactly is that higher power; most important is the constancy of a gentleman’s faith in something larger than himself.

A Bit of a Philistine

A Bit of a Charlatan

Some assert faith comes without doubt and that it can be packaged and sold as simple steps for living a “best life”.

I contend with these assertions.

To the first point: Doubt is central to faith, blind obedience means little compared with questions, especially when their answers provide different, more nuanced, understandings of the same concept.

And the second: Living a good life requires consistent and concentrated effort.
