Don't Put Your Faith in the Wrong Person
Talbot School of Theology
In the late 1980s, George Michael sang the classic words, “I gotta have faith, faith, faith.” But there’s something deeper in the lyric than perhaps the former Wham! singer intended.
After a decade of teaching atheists and three times as long listening to people who have lost their grasp on Christianity, one thing is clear: people don’t so much lose faith as relocate it to another object.
