Against an unshakeable faith

I often hear people talking about having an unshakeable faith as though it were a good thing.  Maybe it is the gap now between where I am in my own life and the place where formal churches seem to be these days, but I can’t help thinking that an unshakeable faith probably isn’t such a great idea.

Surely at some point your faith has to be dynamic enough to say to yourself, “Oh wait, based on this stuff that has happened to me, or based on what I have just seen, I think I need to re-evaluate my beliefs and whether or not this is still working for me?”

If your faith is unshakeable how do you know if what you believe in is right or not?  Is there nothing in this life that would convince you that you need to adjust your beliefs?

Would you wish that kind of faith upon yourself or those you love?
