The Opposite Of Faith

Paul Tillich: "Doubt is not the opposite of faith; it is one element of faith" (c.f. "Creo que absurdam est"...).

Too often religionists seem to want certainty (True Belief), not faith; doubt seems to play little part in the theology of such people except as an evil. In fact, for many Fundamentalist-Americans, doubt seems to be the enemy -- it's what True Belief is supposed to banish.

Doubt is the enemy of True Belief.
