Fides Quaerens Intellectum

Faith is not the fearful and frantic exercise of fideism. Faith gives you patience to work through the data and seek understanding, with the confidence that the truth belongs to God and that he will give the truth. Why fear losing faith through the love of God? Resolving to do things in the light is itself an act of faith, by which it would be absurd to destroy faith. It is all patience; what gets you to the credible reasons is patience.
