    I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.

    Totally agree, but at the same time it seems that many times the "educated" have a tendency to relegate the simple message of scripture to "the UN-educated", while they alone can grasp the DEEPER doctrines that God has given in His word.

    Granted there is more than the immediate jump-out-at-you application, but that just shows, to me anyway, that God's word is beyond a total human comprehension! Ergo, no matter how deep one digs, there is always more and deeper to Him.

    Too many times the "EDUCATED" are educated beyond their intelligence; IE: there's a huge difference in WISDOM, and KNOWLEDGE!

    There are those who consider themselves enlightened beyond scripture. The heart is wicked. I remember in the old days on the BB the Catholics used to throw this quote around quite a bit.
