Part of what I want this website to be includes just random thoughts I have while waiting for the bus in the morning. I will often write these thoughts in my phone and then use them in articles later on. As I just bought an iPhone and I’m not sure how to transfer the notes from my previous phone onto my PC, I thought I would add them here periodically. Here’s the first one, on belief and conviction. I first heard Rob Coyle from Youth Dimension talk about this many years ago and it has stayed with me.
Belief is commitment to a set of ideals or, in the case of Christianity, to a person – Jesus. Conviction is a knowing; it is something deeply entrenched in the core of our being and it is a foundation for our lives.
