Hexi, whatever...believe what you want. it means nothing to me. Like I said, i was merely explaining some basis of Faith. Accept it. Don't accept it. You have free will.
Do you happen to have a reference for something written about spiritual dryness and how it may be a spiritual gift? I'd like to read it, if so. I've never encountered that idea, and I would like to explore it.
For one, Mother Theresa has written about it:http://www.ad2000.com.au/articles/2008/oct2008p16_2917.html
Uknown: Also try Googling “The Dark Night of the Soul” By St. John of the Cross or just that particular phrase. Spiritual dryness and this dark night (not to be confused with the other dark knight) are synonymous. The gift part comes into play when you are stripped of those internal attachments I referred to in the other thread. What's left?
Back to your regularly scheduled program. :-)
linda/Ecce Homo - thanks :) I'll have something to read between folding clothes this morning. ^.^
Oh... i was mistaken. "void of emotions" has nothing to with crisis of faith hahahaha. I'm actually not gonna even bother with this one. Carry on! Oh, and linda, you apparently missed my last sentence in the post but i guess you didn't care at all so you were in a hurry to tell me that before actually reaching the end, cute. :)
