Belief is no adequate substitute for inner experience, and where this is absent even a strong faith which comes miraculously as a gift of grace may depart equally miraculously. People call faith the true religious experience but they do not stop to think that actually it is a secondary phenomenon arising from the fact that something happened to us in the first place which instilled ‘piotos’ into us – that is, trust and loyalty etc.
