Does your worldview direct your actions? Do your beliefs change what you do? If they don’t then they aren’t strong enough. Real belief, true knowledge, changes.
Regardless of what you believe, if you don’t walk the talk then your beliefs don’t do any good. On Easter of 1986 my parents gave me a bible. I’ve read it quite a bit since then and it’s a bit beat up. When I was trying to think of how to show Easter this year I thought it would be a good tangible object connected to my beliefs.
I certainly don’t get everything that is in this book. Even the stuff I do “get” I often screw up. However, I do believe that God decided to share some of what we go through when sin separates us from him. He humbled himself and let a body separate him from perfect communion so that he could fix a broken world.
That’s what I believe. Now what will I do about it? What do you believe? What do you do about it?
Is your telos sufficient to orient your praxis, or do you need to change something?
