“The natural operation of human reason, unchecked by the Bible, only leads to error and vanity.”

#-o :stuck_out_tongue:

We reasoned possibly better prior to the bible, who’s faith had the desire to stop us thinking and let god do it for us. Thereafter god didn’t do it for us and we turned one again to reason; science and philosophy.

There is only ‘the natural operation of human reason’, one book or another can be no more than a part of that. In this case one that un-check’s its progress.

“The natural operation of human reason, unchecked by accurate history, only leads to error and vanity.”

The only question is who has been presuming and lying about what.

Well, both reason and reasoning using the Bible seem quite capable of leading to atrocity and on the way error and vanity as early stops on the ride.

I don’t know what the ‘natural operation’ of reason is, but this fits with Christianity’s judgments of nature.

Would then reason that is checked by the Bible be unnatural reason?
