Of Higher Value - Courage Or Compassion?

26 March 2004

Do people with all the answers bother you? Do people who are so sure of themselves get on your nerves? What about people who claim to be keepers, guardians and interpreters of ”the truth?”

When these folks are reluctant to recognize any sort of ambiguity in life, or to try to understand the struggles of others less fortunate, it truly annoys me. Life isn’t simple. Life isn’t simple for Christians. Christians shouldn’t portray themselves as people with all the answers in life. Yes, there is truth. Yes, we can know truth.

Yet, there is not some shield of protection covering those who call themselves Christians. There is also no corner on truth.
