Deconstructing God

Deconstructing God - NYTimes.com



The particular beliefs are more local, more stabilized, more codified,
while this underlying faith and hope in life is more restless,
open-ended, disturbing, inchoate, unpredictable, destabilizing, less
confinable.
 If you cease to ‘believe’ in a particular religious creed, you have
merely changed your mind. But if you lose ‘faith,’ a way of life,
everything is lost.
 Derrida calls this a “religion without religion.”
--  John D. Caputo, a professor of religion and humanities at Syracuse
University and the author of “The Prayers and Tears of Jacques Derrida:
Religion Without Religion.”
