Reason–a Bridge to Faith, p. 208

Reason–a Bridge to Faith, p. 208

We were squarely confronted with the question of faith.  We couldn’t duck the issue.  Some of us had already walked along the bridge of reason toward the desired shore of faith, where friendly hands stretched out in welcome.  We were grateful that reason had brought us so far.  Perhaps we had been relying too heavily on reason that last mile, and we did not like to lose our support.

Yet, without knowing it, had we not been brought to where we stood by a certain kind of faith?  For did we not believe in our own reasoning?  Did we not have confidence in our ability to think?  What was that but a sort of faith?  Yes, we had been faithful to the god of reason.  So, in one way or another, we discovered that faith had been
involved all the time!
