Daily Thought: The Instrument of Reason

"Instead, reason's role is that of a servant.  Reason is a God-given instrument to help us better understand and defend our faith.  Though the Holy Spirit gives us assurance of the basic truth of our faith, He does not impart knowledge of all its ramifications and ins and outs—for example, whether God is timeless or everlasting, how to reconcile providence and free will, or how to formulate the doctrine of the Trinity.  Those are things we must decide by thinking about them." ~ William Lane Craig, Hard Questions, Real Answers, p. 37
