In religion believing means considering dogmata and rules as truth absolute, unquestionable and exclusively salvific.
But to the thoughtful (Qohélet 4/14, Proverbes 16/20), and there are more of them than you might think, which include the Arès P(p)ilgrims, believing means being open to question.
Believing is swapping blind conviction for spiritual intelligence (Rev of Arès 32/5).
An Arès P(p)ilgrim derives hope from the Sources : Veda, Bible, Kuran, etc., even though they are buried under (Rev of Arès 24/4) men's books (16/12, 35/12), and derives hope from The Revelation of Arès especially, but he can also learn from his mistakes, erring ways and continually restored stubborn determination by hook or by crook to keep faith in a very simple principle: Salvation is not earned by believing, but it is earned by doing good.


Le douteur vérifie

Thomas checks whether the crucified one has risen from the dead (Caravagio)
Thomas is not a skeptic ; he is a thoughtful man.

There is no reliable path towards the Hights but the rocky goat's paths (Rev of Arès 25/5), on which walkers have to anticipate the spots that they are to  step onto. We cannot see Truth on the grounds that it is eternal, for we have long stopped looking It in the face, so we have to retrieve Truth (28/7) or Life (24/5), which mean the same Entity, that is, God in all the meanings human beings attach to the term.
Good, the sole basis of which is love, will not reappear unless it is rebuilt after the millenial scourge of sin has stopped harming humanity. In the sinful world only the True (Rev of Arès xxxiv/1-4), which is relative, stays reliable, because Truth has vanished. Man only meets with uncertainty.
Believing means striving to overcome uncertainty obstinately, but for the time being it is moving along the continuum against doubt and being unable to come to anything final currently. I know how arduous is this condition.
Penitence, that The Revelation of Arès advocates,  and that involves loving all of men, forgiving all of offense, making peace with everybody, gaining spiritual intelligence free of all prejudices, cannot only stick to experience, because for long there has not been any feedback from the people loved, forgiven,  accepted as they stand in an unbiased and unprejudiced manner. The star of love has waned, because it has received very few favorable responses for some time now.
The Hindu expects everything from the alleged lucky transmigration of souls, the Jew expects a reward from the Eternal for his or her achievement of the mitzvot, the Christian expects salvation from Jesus supposed to be God, the Muslim sees Allah as the master of absolue providence as well as paradise and hell. That is the religious business as usual, better than nothing in chaotic stop-gap measures thanks to which something of those who die may not be dissolved, but it is insufficient to change man and the world.

Having questioned myself for fourty-seven years I have understood, so I believe, that man can find out his own creative function in Life's Bosom (24/3-5), if he gets to know again that he is the Maker's image and likeness, and that he has to strive to be more than a molecule or minuscule debris of the Creation Power. I am aware that man reified usually finds it nonsense to consider himself as Life's Child (Rév d'Arès 13/5). For the time being in the spiritually fallen world only the scarce ripened spike admits being the Child of something kin to the Universe. From that mystery-link, even though it is vaguely appreciated, the human animal can have his soul arise through penitence, even if it is just messy and staying afloat more or less satisfactorily. But, and most importantly, those depths have enough transcendence to make a good man from the muddled spritual steam (ii/13, xix/18) that hangs about within humans like the mist over fields at the dawn (xxxv/7, xxxviii/12). Later on, the good man is going to grow clearly divine from generation to generation, knowing that a small remnant of pure Water will be enough to save all of the human Sea. That salvage will not be done by means of some fantastic bounty of the Creator ; it will be done by means of the One (xxiv/1), which all that live thanks to Life is, because there is just One Life.

Uncertainty is the overriding issue for all the people of the world. I am sure that I in this moment am writing this entry, wearing socks, shorts, trousers, a shirt, but will I tomorrow, tonight, in one hour be alive? Uncertainty. Moreover, if I die, what am I going to meet beyond the mirror? If it is another life, which really? I believe, and I can just believe, that I will go up into the open-sky dome of stars as I did during the night of 2 October 1977 (Rev of Arès vi/1-5). And yet, that night, did I move into the Universe really? Yes, I did, definitely. The skeptics and the naysayers have tried to clobber me under their "You merely dreamt!" attacks, but might any man not remember that extraordinary an experience? If as I die my penitence has not failed and killed my soul, I am honestly certain that I will survive. "Is honesty certainty, nonetheless?" people are going to ask me  demander. I will answer yes without hesitation asn I will remind that no one can harness honesty and certainty to the truth just as no one can harness an ox and a traction dog to the same cart, even though both of them are of use.
In this connection, it is fit to bear in mind that those that have carefully read The Revelation of Arès and agreed about its veracity — veracity is as visible though as precarious as smoke — know that it is not the Light all of a sudden turned on like garish spotlights over a stadium. The Revelation of Arès is just the narrow Door which half-opens, the lid of the bubbling pot of Life, which slightly lifts over the Truth, an apple fallen from the huge Universe, the infinite tree. We human beings have become nothing more than twirling minute seeds that the Father's Wind blows (Rev of Arès ii/3) with the expectation that they will end up being buried in the Earth soil, sprouting and repopulating the Garden of Eden that they had deserted (Genesis 3/24). Then the Day will break, when the Light will cover everything forever (31/8). You cannot believe in this if you do not get more than that which the Arès Word tells. You have to think it over ceaselessly, because that prospect is just a temporary image, one as intangible as a fairy tale even in the mind of an apostle, who has always to recommence to accept it confidently again and again, a guaranteed precognition, however.
Among society, who love only their own concepts, although they are loved by Life nonetheless, and who for all eras and all seasons seem to see themselves as the Last Judgement of History, our apostolate is very hard. I as the Father's prophet say that I have a great deal of admiration for the brothers and sisters that follow me. May they keep in mind that the perfect selffulfilment of man, his comeback to the path towards Good  can exceed Adam's sin (Rev of Arès 2/1-5) really. There is no impassable blocking situation. Good can reappear if man stubbornly slides towards his Divine roots. So yes, believing means questioning oneself ceaselessly, again and again sending out one's thinking in pursuit of the objectives of a Promise  (Rev of Arès 2/8) which seems to flee from us, but which we Life and men will achieve, some Day.
