Carson on the limits of cognition

It is interesting to observe that even D. A. Carson confesses there’s more to the gospel than logic: “All of this shows how cognitive the gospel is … Yet the gospel is not exclusively cognitive. It is also affective and active. The word of the cross is not only God’s wisdom, which the world considers folly, but it is God’s power, which the world considers weakness. Where the gospel triumphs, lives are transformed.” God transcends our God think.

  1. This is one of the most insightful, amazing quotes I’ve ever read. I can’t believe I haven’t come across it until now, but I’m so glad that I did come across it at all! Thank you for sharing this quote. It’s inspired me so much that I’m off to search D.A. Carson and see what other types of things he (or is it a she?) has written.
