The Never-Ending Quest
Having written yesterday's blog entry, in which I commented on the article talking about the prediction of religion becoming extinct in nine nations, I have to say that, as someone with a strong Christian faith, I am never so pessimistic. No mathematical model will ever be able to adequately fathom the power and mystery of God. While at some stages we may go astray like lost sheep, God's love, which is manifested through Jesus, will bring us home. And just as there are those who turn their back on God, there are also those who fervently seek Him. As Bruce Feiler wrote in his book Walking the Bible: "What was important, I realised, was the ongoing hunt the often-eccentric, never-ending quest to verify the biblical story, which itself masked one of the oldest human desires: the need to make contact with God."
