Intellectual

Intellectual

By putting one reference under this topic doesn’t mean by all means that the rest of the approaches are not intelligent, neither that this is the only intellectual approach to understanding God. I’m going to refer to a series of talks Dr. Timothy Keller did for people who are curious about Christianity. Now, I will have to add that Dr. Keller also emphasizes the heart of Christianity, which is a love relationship with the Father, so please don’t draw an off-balance conclusion here. But as far as reasoning for Christianity, I found his presentations very powerful and convincing.

We are all different, each coming from a different angle. If the intellect is your thing, I would highly recommend that you go through this series. You need to know though that if you only rely on your intellect, you may never find God. Reasons help, in fact greatly, but there will come a point where you just have to take a leap of faith if you’d like to go on for further investigation of who God is. You don’t have to turn off your brain as soon as you become a Christian, so don’t be afraid of that. In fact the brain has greater functions in God’s universe than you thought. But, reasoning is a part of the big picture, so this may just be the missing piece of the puzzle for you. Enjoy!
