Faith Is Stronger Than Reason

An old writer said that Faith and Reason may be compared to two travelers. Faith is like a man in full health, who can walk his twenty or thirty miles at a time without suffering. Reason is like a little child, who can only, with difficulty, accomplish three or four miles.

"Well," says the old writer, "on a given day Reason says to Faith, 'O good Faith, let me walk with you.’”

“Faith replies, 'O Reason, you could never walk with me!'

“However, to try their paces, they set out together, but they soon find it hard to stay together.

“When they came to a deep river, Reason says, 'I can never ford this!’

“But Faith wades through it singing.

“When they reached a lofty mountain, there is the same exclamation of despair; and in such cases, Faith, in order not to leave Reason behind, is obliged to carry him on his back.

“Oh, what luggage is Reason to Faith."

Hebrews 11:1
