Thinking Highly of Faith

February 19, 2020

I read this quote from “The Kierkegaard Collection” by Soren Kierkegaard –

“I do not however mean in any sense to say that faith is something lowly, but on the contrary that it is the highest thing, and that it is dishonest of philosophy to give something else instead of it and to make light of faith. Philosophy cannot and should not give faith, but it should understand itself and know what it has to offer and take nothing away, and least of all should fool people out of something as if it were nothing.”

So often, we tend to apologize for living by faith and not by philosophy.  As if philosophy were the higher of the two alternatives.  Philosophy assumes an understanding of reality’s rules that cannot be realized and therefore must always be in subjugation to Faith based on reality revealed.
