In the days ahead, you will either be a mystic (one who has experienced God for real) or nothing at all.
Karl Rahner, as quoted by James Spinti from the forthcoming book The Furious Longing of God.
I agree. Faith that is based only on truth understood by the intellect will not survive difficult times. Only faith based on a real personal experience of God can endure the worst that life can throw at us and last into eternity.
