Wingnut extraordinaire Bradlee Dean has come out boldly against the use of reason because it’s the enemy of faith. Which is true, of course, but it’s kind of refreshing to hear someone just blurt out that thinking is bad. The title of the column is “Reason: Faith’s Greatest Enemy.”
Again, “When valor preys on reason, it eats the sword it fights with.”
Friends, let me explain:
“Reason is faith’s greatest enemy, and when you walk by reason you make faith obsolete!”
As Christians we “walk by faith not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7). The question I would ask you is: Where is your faith? Mine is in God. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The God of our Lord Jesus Christ. The King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. The Lion of the tribe of Judah. The Man of War! The God that said, “Call unto Me and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not” (Jeremiah 33:3). The God Who said that He would, “show Himself strong in the behalf of those whose hearts are perfect [by grace] towards Him” (2 Chronicles 16:9), and “Greater works will you do then I did because I go unto My Father” (John 14:12).
So, my friends, God the Father lays to your candor, “Who hath believed our report? And to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?” (Isaiah 53:1) I can tell you, to those who respond in faith because they believe.
It is time for America to stand up and be counted, regardless of the circumstances we have in front of us. We have an opportunity, America, to prove our God. So, I ask, whose report are you going to believe? God’s, or man’s?
That’s some serious gibberish, which is what you get when you stop using your ability to think rationally.
