A Plea for Christians to Use Their Brains

My third year student, Theunis Pretorius (nicknamed “Gladiator”) has a great little web-thought on “A Plea for Christians to Use Their Brains”. He writes:

Thinking over Scripture and studying theology will not turn you into a Pharisee, who has knowledge of God’s word but no love for Him (unless your motives are incorrect). In fact if our desire for knowledge is firmly grounded upon a love for God the result will be just the opposite. When a Christian, with correct motives, seeks a greater understanding of God, the knowledge that they attain will act like fuel being thrown upon a fire, and thus only intesify the blaze of their love for the Lord.

    I shared a “pearly gates” story recently that makes a similar point – albeit potentially in a more “liberal” way than you’ll be happy with. :-)
