Podcast cover
Read more
Dr. Kariatlis examines the opening phrase of the Creed—"I believe"—and in so doing reveals the extent to which the term "faith" has become so misunderstood in today's society where it has come to mean "a lower form of knowledge." This episode demonstrates that, far from carrying with it a degree of uncertainty, faith, understood as trust, is the means by which we come to know God with certitude in a real and personal way.
