I really liked how Kierkegaard re-defines faith (at least for me) and how infinite resignation is a prerequisite for faith. It makes the non-questioning church goer look lazy and docile. Kierkegard says, "Infinite resignation is the last stage before faith, so that whoever has not made this movement does not have faith. For only in infinite resignation do I become transparent to myself in my eternal validity, and only then can there be talk of laying hold of existence by virtue of faith" (pg 39). For Kierkegaard, faith is more than saying I believe. One has to first push the limits of skepticism to the breaking point "until there is peace and rest and consolation in the pain" (pg 38). I guess this means that in order for one to truly posses faith one must first be a philosopher of sorts?
