At some point one must lift up their head and seek “the answers”. This seeking is the apprehension process described in my definition of theology (see earlier writings). Whenever one begins is connected to wherever one begins. One begins within some context. And whether one is an atheist or an Anglican, ultimate questions must be asked. I think that this eventually calls for a decision, and this decision requires a certain virtue package, which I will call a “humble integrity”.
It is a humble integrity because it requires one to first of all, acknowledge their uncertainty while professing their absolute faith. It requires integrity because one must be consistent with their faith claim. Integrity without humility can become a strident dogmatism. Humility without integrity can become an unfruitful skepticism.
