Faith is Intellectual

“Faith is indeed intellectual; it involves an apprehension of certain things as facts; and vain is the modern effort to divorce faith from knowledge. But although faith is intellectual, it is not only intellectual. You cannot have faith without having knowledge; but you will not have faith if you have only knowledge.”
― J. Gresham Machen

  1. That is idiotic to say the least. To assume that your definition of intellectual is the idea of talking about things that your mind perceives to be fact is simply out of the question. Facts aren't fact unless they have a basis to be so
