Truth Decay

“Human reason-ing is affected by sin in that we often do not attend to matters logically or we reason in only a half-buried or slothful way. We employ logical fallacies without knowing it, and our stock of facts from which we argue is sometimes limited in ways that hinder our thinking […] The greatest problem with human reasoning occurs when it vainly attempts to become autonomous of God and divine revelation. This is the fault of human hubris, not of reason itself.”

       Douglas Groothuis, “Truth Decay” (pg. 122-123)
