The modern view on faith is that we believe in an incomprehensible mystery, so there is no reason for us to bother with something like that, because we won’t understand it and we don’t need it. This consequently means that I drop all my rights and responsibilities and it leads to a wrong choice for my life, simple because others will decide for me, without my consent.
This is unacceptable in modern life, because we all want to know and to participate in the decisions that define our daily life and our destiny in general.
So, while in life matters we all want to participate – and do our best – when it comes to the matters of faith and the essence of life – not just daily life – we give up without fighting for it with passionately, as we do in battles for the minimum wage and our health insurance for example.
This is a logical paradox and a creative ambiguity: why, when it comes to things that will define our lives for the next decades we take every opportunity we can find (social, economical, etc), but then it comes to things that will define our lives eternally, there we quit without fighting, without trying?
The answer is obviously because we haven’t understood the value of those things. We may not be able to see those things yet with our physical eyes, but all of us know that they are there and are waiting for us during the next years of our lives.
And since the only way to get away from the creative ambiguity that the everyday world pressures us to accept and explore the creative clarity of the creation that starts with our creator, is to answer to the voice of Christ that calls for us to start our personal search, not alone, but with Him: the one who create logic, word an creative clarity in an eternal productive act.
