Grant,

I think I understand the difference. But I've experienced often - when someone believes they know something that can help someone else - we tend to say it.
If you were walking past a bicyclist who had fallen, put a small cut in his leg and was dabbing at it with a tissue, while there was a clean handkerchief in his hip pocket ... you'd at least try to tell him, yeah? I know - apples and oranges because the handkerchief is tangible and God is not. But the point I hope to make is the motive is somewhat the same. We want to help.

As for accepting all that stuff that has no proof and can't be seen, touched, smelled, felt ... that's why they call it faith. And I'm one of those people who need my faith. In ways I don't know if I could explain.

But I will say - I wish you peace.
