Christianity- is it all about ‘belief’, or ‘journey’?

Sarah responded to a my recent blog post about (un)belief with a rather telling point questioning the difference between faith that is all about belief (as in the mental ticking of theological and doctrinal boxes) as opposed to faith that is a spiritual path (as in a journey of discovery.)

Marcus Borg says it pretty well here (also pinched from Sarah’s blog!)-

It is an interesting thought -as I think about it, my faith more and more does not seem to be about holding to a narrow set of beliefs but much more about the journey it releases me on.

We followers of ‘the way’ often spent too long going nowhere because we got too hung up on what we regarded as the essential¬†propagation¬†of correct beliefs.

What might it mean to be free from these things- in oder to really follow Jesus?
