    You suggest ‘We believe in God but we cannot point to his explicit activities.’ I’m no theologian, but surely a pervasive God is always active!

    “Christ has no body now on earth but yours,
    no hands but yours, no feet but yours,
    Yours are the eyes through which to look out
    Christ’s compassion to the world
    Yours are the feet with which he is to go about
    doing good;
    Yours are the hands with which he is to bless men now.”
    Attributed to St Teresa of Avila, though I have my doubts…

    God bless

  2. Joc,

    I would agree wholeheartedly, but what is perceived through faith and through reason may be very different. Attempts to defend Christianity now seem mostly to start from a Deist attitude that ‘there must be something there’.
