A Quantum Leap of Faith

In a surprising twist, science, especially quantum physics, is expanding faith in the Trinity as it shows us that relationships are all there is in the universe. I confess to having a hard time understanding the quantum theory in physics. But the quantum principle of a complementarity that tolerates ambiguity, approximation, probability, and paradox greatly appeals to me. Inflexible certitudes turn me off and worry me.

Any religion that has been reduced to mere performance of certain rituals, affirming certain “truths,” adhering to certain moral principles, and being part of a special group is useless. Religion is about participation not merely following. Authentic religion helps the believer to fully enter into the divine flow of life, which for Christians means actively participating in the mystery of the Trinity. Christianity is more than going to church on Sunday and trying to be good the rest of the week. Christ calls us to something much deeper.

    Wonderful reasoning, Gerry. Ambiguity, paradox and, especially, inflexible attitudes are what continue to keep me searching on my faith journey.
    In essence, they assure me that there is so much more to The Mystery ‘out there.’ That we cannot understand the philosophy and the science of metaphysics as it relates to our Creator God and the Trinity is not the point. It is the continuing search for all that He is and always has been for us and to us that is crucial.

    You’re in good company. A HuffPo article is entitled: “Pope Francis: ‘The Mental Structure Of Fundamentalists Is Violence In The Name Of God'”
