“We don’t often think of it in this way, but there’s an important truth that needs some attention in circles of faith: A belief, no matter how sincere, if not reflected in reality isn’t a belief; it’s a delusion.”
—Not A Fan by Kyle Idleman
What he’s saying here is that being a Christian should be more than lip service to Christ: if your belief doesn’t reflect in your reality, it isn’t a belief, it’s a delusion.
One of those ‘put down the book and feel dearly held notions tumbling down the abyss of epiphany’ moments.
I’ll post a full review of Not A Fan when I’ve finished reading it, but so far I can recommend it without hesitation.
