Sometimes people understand faith in a narrow way, as if to have faith in God means to reject science or other religions or what other people believe to be true. But faith in God cannot mean the rejection of any truth from any source. Because any God worthy of the name, any God who is the creative source of all that is, any God that is love itself, being itself, the Alpha and Omega from whom all things come and to whom all things will one day return, any God worthy of devoting our lives to, any God worthy of worship, is one from whom all truth ultimately comes, and to whom all truth ultimately points, and that means that true faith in God cannot be a narrow faith. A narrow faith points to a partial truth. The fullness of truth has a depth and a complexity that is often express through the language of metaphor, poetry and paradox.
