What I Believe?

A few weeks ago, I gave a copy of my three journal entries (1, 2, 3), concerning the philosophical exploration of what I believed, to my Bible as Literature professor, Dr. Carver. First off, Dr. Carver is a really thoughtful and wise person. On top of that, he's done incredible amounts of research on the Bible, not just book work, but personally translating original texts, or rather the texts in their original language (since no "original" texts still exist). Plus, he's genuinely open-minded about most things. That said, it's a little more clear why I'd be inclined to have him read those entries.

Tonight, after class was finished, I spent a little bit of time talking to him about what he thought. It's difficult to relate all of what he said, but overall, he had plenty to say that has caused me to think a little more about what I believe, or, at the very least, how I can philosophically support what I believe. He never suggested that any of my thoughts were wrong, but he pointed out that some seemed not to be beliefs that I held very close or that I threw in out of mandate. In some regards, that's probably true. On the other hand, it also gives me just that little bit of motivation to see if they are in fact something that I can support.

Needless to say, I'll have plenty to think about for some time.
