We all do, which Wilson knows, but his focus is obviously raising boys into men. Even so, what he says in his second full paragraph about faith is worth considering in full:
"...Unbelief is always anchored to the present, while faith looks at that which is unseen. But even here we only get half the picture. Too often we think that faith only looks at heavenly things, but this truncated approach is really the result of an incipient Gnosticism. In the Bible, faith includes the ability to see that which is unseen because it is still future. Abraham rejoiced to see the day of Christ, not the day when he, Abraham, would go to heaven. Faith conquers kingdoms, faith stops the mouths of lions, faith turns armies to flight, and faith brings boys up to a mature and godly masculinity."
He continues further, but I hope you see the future-looking, hopeful, nature of biblical faith. We do not want to live by a "truncated" faith; we do not want to live by a wistful faith that sees the world in merely abstract, ethereal wonder and longing. Biblical faith is assertive and active, standing on the promises of God and reaching toward what will be, toward the God who holds the future itself.
