If the opposite of faith is certainty, then in this context, the opposite of love is smug. I read that at "Deliver us from Smugness" by Falsani (posted 5-31-2012). I think this is an important topic. Does having faith mean having doubt? Certainly J!sus in the Garden can be interpreted to imply this. Why do we (I do include myself, arrogance is one of my many vices) have to resort to yelling over religion or politics? 'Tis the original sin here in the USA. I used to be oh, so smug about the (what I called) semitic hair-splitting and repetitions, for example, Arafat denying the existence of the Temple. Like I thought he thought by repeating that old line enough times All!h would hear him and make it true. Same with Bloody Sharon. Now I realize that the (what I think are) important issues, like love and faith, G!d, and being are never "knowable" or "certain" in any rational way (that is, using reason). They are metaphysical issues that just are. Best handled by us all sitting down in one big tipi, smoking the pipe of peace together, sweating together, and sharing stories with each other. "Live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about his religion. Respect others in their views and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and of service to your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, or even a stranger, if in a lonely place. Show respect to all people, but grovel to none. When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision. When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home." Tekoomse (Panther Amongst the Stars) as related by his descendents.
