Misplaced Faith in Reason

"Well, brethren, to sum up a great many things in one, faith is to us a great enlargement of our souls. Men who are morbidly anxious to possess a self-consistent creed, -- a creed which they can put together, and form into a square, like a Chinese puzzle, -- are very apt to narrow their souls. Fancying that all truth can be comprehended in half-a-dozen formulae, they reject as worthless every doctrinal statement which cannot be comprehended" (Charles Spurgeon, An All-Round Ministry, p. 23).
