Spirituality is not devoid of rational thought

It is a common misconception that if you are to believe in God you must throw out logic. That God doesn't want us to use our brains because it gets in the way of us being able to take a "leap of faith" no rational person would do this.

Lets consider a few things. God knows everything, i mean everything, math, science, literature, people, the brain, the spiritual realm- Everything.- God created us. He says in His Word that He will teach us all things, that we have been given the mind of Christ. The mind of CHRIST! who is God, so He says in His Word that He will help us think like He does. Makes sense. God doesnt want us to abandon our mental faculties to believe in Him. just simply to open our selves to the realm of possibility. and sometimes in order to do this we must loose ourselves from what we think we know and believe the world is round anyway. Even though everyone else states its scientific fact it is flat, even when the world reports something different we need to believe the report of the Lord.

Keep thinking, Keep Seeking, Keep doubting :) and quest, hunger and thirst for you shall be satisfied, ask you and shall find, i could go on but you get the point. Happy hunting.

There is a great book I just started by one J.P. Moreland, Titled "Love your God with all your mind"
I have found it to be very timely. It's awesome when the Holy Spirit continues to confirm His teaching. You are missed.

I feel missed. and I am more than happy- eager in fact- to be used by the Holy Spirit in this or any way He may seem fit.
