The Problem of Sin and the Knowledge of God

I found this quote while reading through F.F. Bruce’s commentary on Hebrews. As short as it is I believe it says a lot.

“The intellect is not over-ready to entertain an idea that heart finds unpalatable.”

F.F. Bruce

When we as natural fallen people, love our sin, the news about God and His righteousness is not pleasant to our ears. We will spend the rest of our lives trying intellectually to suppress that truth in unrighteousness unless the Holy Spirit begins to work in our heart to change it.

God Bless,

Hey Doug,

You sound like an "Affective Theologian" ;~).

In Christ,

This is so true. I find it frustrating that people often want to treat the word of God as though it is multiple choice.
