#2: What the Bible Says About “Thinking Christianly”

May 15, 2021

In this episode, we’re making a Biblical case for the role of reason in Christianity. We discuss:

How Scripture makes a clear case for the role of reason in our spiritual lives
The way evidential reasoning is present in Scripture
How to avoid confusing total knowledge with genuine knowledge
The difference between the use and abuse of reason
Why we can trust that God doesn’t use a different kind of logic than ours
Overcoming objections to the reasonable study of scripture
The harmony in Paul’s writings on reason and argumentation
How we participate in the renewal of our mind
