kierkegaard on apologetics

“for whose sake is it that the proof is sought? faith does not need it; aye, it must even regard the proof as its enemy. but when faith begins to feel embarrassed and ashamed, like a young woman for whom her love is no longer sufficient, but who secretly feels ashamed of her lover and must therefore have it established that there is something remarkable about him–when faith thus begins to lose its passion, when faith begins to cease to be faith, then a proof becomes necessary so as to command respect from the side of unbelief.”

||  søren kierkegaard, concluding unscientific postscript
