A politician once stated that 62 percent of people who go to college lose their "faith commitment". Professor emeritus, columnist and author Garry Wills said, "I do not know how one measures such things, but I think it is inevitable that questioning our childhood beliefs should take place, at various stages of our life. The questioning of our faith commitment does not happen in our junior or senior year, it can happen at any time in our lives. It is part of a long process called life because minds grow by questioning things, and adolescence can be a period of questioning everything you know."
A character in a novel by Charles Williams puts the question this way: "Shall our tremors measure Omnipotence?" In other words, Does our inability to understand God diminish God?
No. Sincere questions only drive us deeper into the mystery that is God.
