Is it true that certainty is a deep-seated psychological need? Or has it just become popular to think it is in a culture of "seeing is believing" - a culture that is devoid of Faith?
Psychology does not differentiate between the mind of one with Faith and one without Faith - this leads to faulty conclusions - for the two brains are not alike. The person of Faith thrives on uncertainty, he craves the mysterious and unknown. For him it is the unknown that stimulates him and gives his life meaning. It is his freedom to choose Faith not "certainty" that fills him with the vitality of drawing ever-closer to his G-d. See more in The Firmest Foundation.
