Lots of Good Reasons

6-levels-thinkingPeople can think of a thousand reasons why God could not possibly exist. Reasons abound when there is an issue we hope to avoid. They come swarming like bees whose honey is being stolen. Even the worst knucklehead suddenly becomes as sharp-minded as a mathematics professor when it comes to discovering reasons for dodging an undesirable matter. People have an astounding capacity for assembling compelling arguments to arrive at erroneous conclusions. C. S. Lewis lamented, “Oh Adam’s sons, how cleverly you defend yourself from all that might do you good.” The road to hell is paved not only with good intentions but with good reasons.
