uncertain tea

"the opposite of faith is not doubt, but certainty"
-Anne Lammott, Plan B

First Google result (actually, first 6) for certainty/Christian:
"Certainty: Christian Basics Bible Studies"

"I think it is the job of leaders to eliminate uncertainty."
-James Shiro, in an interview with some otherwise good ideas

"The leader must know,
must know that he knows,
and must be able to make it abundantly clear to those about him
that he knows."
-Clarence B. Randall, quoted (approvingly!) by John Maxwell, "The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership" (if ever a quote and book title captured the era, it was that flirts with fundyfoundationalism; and even falls prey to "must"-erbation), p. 80

"Certainty can be defined as either (a) perfect knowledge that has total security from error, or (b) the mental state of being without doubt. Objectively defined, certainty is total continuity and validity of all foundational inquiry, to the highest degree of precision. Something is certain only if no skepticism can occur."
-Wikipedia, Link
