But surely when you understand truth to be in flux and not static faith becomes shakable. When you understand that reality is like God (infinite) and therefore unknowable via a finite mind the distorted mind becomes no more.
I find faith to be a polar opposite of the concept of individual truths. Anyone can believe facts or "truths"; and true, anyone can chose not to believe in them, but it doesn't change matters.
For those things which cannot be proven, to treat them as truths, requires one to deceive themselves. You should no more believe that you're a millionaire when you're penniless, than you should believe a person who tells you they're a millionaire if they are penniless. Faith, especially in religious terms, is the plainest example of cognitive dissonance at work that has ever existed, and it's probably a large part of why cognitive dissonance has been studied so broadly and deeply.
Religion is a gigantic mindfuck, and there may be a case to be made that ties the increasing difficulty people have holding their faith to the many ills society faces. There's a lot of people whose subconscious and even perhaps conscious minds are very busy trying to resolve "I believe in God, and that the Church loves and cares for people and is free of sin and will help me get to Heaven" with the stories of alcoholic, gay, embezzling, drug addicted, pedophile clergymen abusing their positions.
My family is religious (not insanely so), and I spent a lot of time going to church. It never made sense why I needed it, ever. One thing I know to be true about myself, is that I implicitly distrust anyone or anything that requires sacrifices from me that they themselves are unwilling to make. I also distrust any ritual that cannot be shown to directly result in a desired outcome; in other words, that which does not add value. Not true for everyone, but true for me. Absolutely. Not in flux.
I'm increasingly convinced that we are a nation in desperate need of an overhaul of our educational system. I can't think of a way to do that which won't hurt really bad for about 20 years, but there are no two ways about it.
