The necessity of struggle

Real growth happens through the process of struggle. Often we just take for granted any theological proposition that is told us. It is not the taking for granted that is wrong, but taking it for granted without contemplation is quite. The taking for granted of any theological proposition should be the outcome of our struggle to know the truth. Faced with particular difficulty, we have to question ourselves how we are going to solve it. At the end, we may arrive at the same truth—truth that is to be taken for granted—but we arrive at it largely by ourselves. When we do so, we will have a firmer grasp of the truth. We will not easily forget it.
