William Willimon on Fear

Friends,

I’m reading a fantastic book on preaching by William Willimon titled Peculiar Speech. I wish I could quote about every other sentence for you, but that would ruin the book. Anyhow, here’s something I came across in the reading today:

“We trivialize only that which we fear we can’t handle, especially God.” (54)

That says a lot and helps me to better understand why so many Darwinists and Atheists mock God. And it also helps me understand my own mocking and trivializing of Darwinists and Atheists who hold to their views very strongly.

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately. I’ll share more soon.
