We often talk about Gods grace as being bigger than anything one could imagine, it covers all wrong deeds, and of course it is free (although there seems to be different interpretations of what that word "free" means).
But does grace cover wrong/dis-belief? We often act as if it doesn't. It seems that in many circles, "right belief" is all that matters.
In a recent interview in Relevant Magazine, Ben Gibbard, of Death Cab For Cutie, says this when asked about his faith...
“[Faith’s] something I always find myself meditating on,” he admits. “I don’t want to falsely believe in something solely so I can jump to the front of the line for whatever this awesome place is [where] we go after we die. I kind of feel like if there was a God, [He] would appreciate the fact that I just don’t know. The vastness of that idea is so beyond my comprehension that I feel like if there was a God, then that God would accept me saying I’m not able to believe because it’s so outside of my ability to understand it. I understand that’s where faith comes into play.”
What do you think, would God understand?
