Six Affirmations about the Relationship between the Mind of God and the Mind of Man from the Late Carl F. H. Henry

“The God of the Bible is a rational God; . . . the divine Logos is central to the Godhead and is the agent in creation and redemption; . . . man was made in the divine image for intelligible communion with God; . . . God communicates his purposes and truths about himself in the biblical revelation; . . . the holy Spirit uses truth as a means of persuasion and conviction; and . . . Christian experience includes not simply a surrender of the will but a rational assent to the truth of God.”

~ Carl F. H. Henry, “Reply to the God-Is-Dead Mavericks,” Christianity Today 10 (May 27, 1966), 894.
