A Facebook friend quoted Christian evangelist George Muller, “The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, & the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety.”
Upon reading this, I rephrased it to include the appropriate definition of faith: “The beginning of anxiety is the end of belief that is not based on proof, & the beginning of true belief that is not based on proof is the end of anxiety.”
This works perfectly for those that are willing to blindly follow a belief without ever examining it. For those who yearn to be unthinking, unquestioning sheep, herded by a shepherd, surely it can not get more blissful than this.
However, those that value reason, logic, or thinking could not vehemently disagree more.
