Overrating Certainty

Thanks Joel.

German Theologian, Hans Kung, said it best when he said, "The People of God who pitch their tent without constantly looking out for new horizons, which do not continually strike camp, are being untrue to their calling... We must play down our longing for certainty, accept what is risky, live by improvisation and experiment."

Kung was one of innumerable factors that God used to get me out of Fundamentalism. Now it baffles me that so many people use God for their affirmation, rather than seeking to be used by him.
