141 – Is Faith the End of the Conversation or the Beginning?

Do we use our faith to open a conversation up or close them down?

We have all done it: used our faith as an excuse to end a conversation. Maybe the topic is messy. Maybe we feel as if the other party doesn’t have a lick of reasoning in them. Maybe we just feel we are superior. But when is this a justifiable answer? 

This week, we are recording from the great Ouachita national forest. On a refreshing hike, Elaine poses the question, “is using your faith a justifiable end to a conversation”. Spoiler alert, most of the time it isn’t! 

This isn’t a conversation about putting yourself into negative situations or to feel as if you have to have all the answers. Quite the contrary! This is a tool to help us identify when we are truly at a loss in our understanding of what answer we feel is truth, how to not use our faith as a copout or a crutch, and how to identify the difference in a supernatural reliance on God, versus having a selfish dominant view of our faith and using it as a trump card (puns only minorly intended)
