I was ruminating (otherwise called "thinking") about the issue of "I think..." over the weekend. It would seem that while our ability to think is unquestioned, and that we use thought to process information is also unquestioned, that using the two words "I think..." in regards to our deciding God's actions, theology, etc., is in large part where we get into trouble. It is, in essence, the sin of Genesis 3. Eve, upon hearing the convincing argument of the deceiver, in essence said, "I think..." then proceeded to go against the sure and truthful revelation of God. Would it not be better to eliminate the "I think..." part of our theology and doctrine (which leads to all sort of heretical and human-centered efforts) and rather "know" what it is that God has said, with our reasoning abilities being devoted to correct interpretation, in context, with a proper hermeneutic, so as to DO what God says rather than "think" what we wish?
