Quote of the Day: Stuart James

Being my own Pope and Magisterium led me to the insanity of believing in myself.

via I do not doubt the fundamentals of Christianity, but I do doubt my ability to grasp them fully. | eChurch Blog.

The entire post it good. I share sentiments with Stuart… in that I once held absolute certainty, but the more my faith grew, so did my doubt. A lot of absolute certainty is exactly what Stuart says it is – we are our own doctrinal standards, and in a sense, our own gods.

Good stuff. Read and enjoy.
