So, is it good to be a Skeptical Believer?
Not necessarily. It is simply one way of believing, and one way of being skeptical. It is not the best way to believe, there being no single best way. It is, in fact, a rather precarious way. Skeptical Believers often have their skepticism overpower their belief. They are prone to dark periods when belief, if possible at all, hangs on a thread. They often are plagued by an incessant grinding of the mind that leaves them weary and paralyzed. Their faith is prone to being theoretical and attenuated rather than practical and robust. Encouraging spiritual highs are followed by new rounds of analysis and doubt-filled lows. (The Skeptical Believer - Telling Stories to Your Inner Atheist by Daniel Taylor, p.6)
What do you think of the description? Does it describe you? Does the term, Skeptical Believer, even make sense to you? Is it possible? What do you think?
