"You saved me from myself…"
"Somebody save me. I don´t care how you do it, just save me."
It often surprises me to hear lines like that in pop songs. Even in a world that glories in its superficiality, you can still hear the need or the longing of the human heart for help.
Faith is knowledge and trust. Believing doesn´t have to leave us dramatically unshaken. If you think about it, It´s actually normal to believe: we are constantly putting our trust in something. Maybe here the question isn´t so much ¨What does it mean to believe¨ but, ¨What do I believe in?¨
If you don’t have a good control on the English language, you’re not going to find Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest” as funny as you might otherwise. If you don’t know the contextual background of the Deep South in the US in the earlier half of 20th century, you’re not going to be able to appreciate Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” as much. How much more can we say that of the Bible?
