Augustine on understanding God

I love this quote.  It says everything that I passionately feel about the arrogance of certainty.  What drives “religious” people to violence is not faith; it is arrogant certainty that they have a complete and exclusive understanding of what God wants.  True faith approaches God with humility, never arrogant, ego-serving certainty.
