    This quote is from a game called Civilization 6. It is a summary of Aristotle's Nichomachean Ethics:

    "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."

    And yet his statement is accurate.

    That's why I quoted him, and that's why I requoted him, because if an atheist understands the Gospel, then shouldn't Christians?

    Agreed, understanding isn't too hard.... it's the believing part that most have a problem with.

    I barely post on TOL much, these days, as I've grown quite bored with the same old minds, ever stuck in the same old mud - but your above proved irresistible.

    In that you have just proven what I have often asserted to many a deaf ear on TOL - that the following does not refer to the lost being unable to understand the Scripture.

    1 Corinthians 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

    Acts 17:11,12

    As a whole part of 'psychological education' it needs to be remembered that a neurosis can be valuable; also that 'adjustment' to a sick and insane environment is of itself not 'health' but sickness and insanity.

    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    "The oracles of God foretold the rising of an Antichrist in the Christian Church; and in the Pope of Rome, all the characteristics of that Antichrist are so marvelously answered that if any who read the Scriptures do not see it, there is a marvelous blindness upon them."

    ~Cotton Mather
    Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

    6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
