Episode 153 - Living in the Tension: Paradox, Doubt, and How No One Has Faith Figured Out

In Episode 153, Keith and Justin discuss what it's like to live in tension within your faith. Why does faith, no matter what it is, always necessitate unresolved tension? Is tension a bad thing? Do we use faith as an escape, or as a way to dig deeper into the world? Why do we so often crave certainty? How is fundamentalist faith like an addiction? Does anyone have all the answers, or are we all grasping in the dark? What do we do when God seems silent? Why is it important to admit doubt? And how do our concepts of sacred space, time, and Sabbath fit into the picture? We live-streamed this entire episode, so be sure to check that out on Facebook Live! In the beginning, the guys talk about Justin's stressful week and how he's trying to not panic as he prepares to write final papers and apply to Ph.D. programs. Finally, in the end, we give our final thoughts, and Keith talks about his passion for preaching and theology, even if he's not in formal ministry anymore.
