Unreasonable and absurd ways are truly an offense to God. – William Law
God is a god of reason as well as revelation. Because of the Bible’s nature, serious study is needed to grasp what it says. In fact, Peter once said that some of Paul’s writings were intellectually challenging, hard to understand, and easily distorted by uneducated and unstable people. The Bible has a lot to say about wisdom and reverence for God. Reverence alone will not bring wisdom. Wisdom results when a respectful heart is united with a disciplined mind. Knowledge is the fruit of study, and knowledge is necessary for wisdom.
Some think that faith is opposed to or should be separate from reason. Some argue that human intellect is fallen, depraved, darkened, and blinded, and therefore human reason is irrelevant or suspect when it comes to becoming or growing as a Christian. However, according to Carl Henry, “training the mind is the responsibility of the home, the church, and the school.”
