There is no absolute separation of faith and knowledge. We believe in order to understand. And at every stage we may be wrong. There is no guarantee against error.

But we only grow in knowing as we take risks and accept responsibility …All knowing is a personal commitment. — Lesslie Newbigin, Truth to Tell: The Gospel as Public Truth p33 (via digitaldion)
