CQOD: 12/08/05 -- Glanville: the disparaging of reason
Christian Quotation of the DayDecember 8, 2005
For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
-- 1 Corinthians 1:25 (ESV)
There is not anything I know which hath done more mischief to Religion... than the disparaging of Reason, under pretense of respect and favor to it. For hereby the very Foundations of Christian Faith have been undermined, and the World prepared for Atheism. And if Reason must not be beard, the Being of a God, and the Authority of Scripture, can neither be proved nor defended; and so our Faith drops to the Ground like a House that hath no Foundation.
... Joseph Glanvill (1636-1680)
Quiet time reflection:
I seek Your holy reason to match Your gift of faith.
