  • The necessity of pragmatic faith

    Introduction In the article “Called, the third way” from 2007-12-03 I came to the conclusion that one should “[v]iew your actions as essentially human activity in obedience to God’s general will, except where God’s immediate instructions surprise you.” And in the follow-up article “What we term relationship to Jesus” I argued that “relationship”, when applied […]

  • Direct faith, lost in 1st century

    In Protestant churches, confirmation is (hopefully) when young believers are taught arguments and reasons that confirm and strengthen their faith. In my life, conformation is when Jesus confirms my faith by contemporary activity. Let me explain how I currently view faith, the basis of faith and my faith. Content vs. confirmation Do Christians believe in […]
