All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. John 1:3
For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities–all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. Colossians 1:16-17
The LORD, the God of their fathers, sent word to them again and again by His messengers, because He had compassion on His people and on His dwelling place; but they continually mocked the messengers of God, despised His words and scoffed at His prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against His people, until there was no remedy. 2 Chronicles 36:15-1
The wicked, in the haughtiness of his countenance, does not seek Him. All his thoughts are, “There is no God.” Psalm 10:4
I believe the existence of the separation of faith and reason is an obvious attack of the enemy. If he sways some with sexual lusts and some with gluttonous desires, surely he also uses intellectual arrogance on others. He offers little tin crowns to the cynic and the disaffected, declaring them an intellectual god in creation.
It is incredibly insidious. Take control of the intellectual strongholds in society, especially the educational institutions, and therein is the easy way to control the young and the naive and the seeking-but-undiscerning. Belittle the faithful as believers in “fairy tales”, despite tremendous evidence of the existence of God.
A consequence of the lost souls claiming education or intelligence is that some believers then blame the intellect, the capability for thought and reason, as if it was the brain, not the heart, that was hardened and evil in those who reject the Lord. The enemy then can frighten the weak brethren into believing that reason and intellect are evil, the evidence of the enemy instead of the tools that the Lord gave us to glorify Him.
Let us not be deceived. All things are in Him and in Him all things consist. There is not one “discovery” that does not actually use and/or reveal the glory of the Lord, even though we humans sometimes use those discoveries for evil.
Let us understand how the enemy can use our pride to make it seem like we are the ones with superior intellect and reason instead of the Lord, Whose work and glory is manifest from the quark to the entirety of existence. To Him be all glory and honor forever, amen.
