Should reason and faith go together?
Humans have the power to reason and also a will to nurture faith. Should these go against each other or work together for a common goal of higher knowledge.
This question will answer itself sooner or later. An analytical mind will always reason, but it can also help us through its discriminative faculty. Faith is stronger. It is an unshakeable knowledge in things unseen but felt inwardly or within. It guides reasoning and will lead to wisdom which you can say is a higher form of reasoning.
One comes from the mind and the other from the psychic being but both are necessary. Without reasoning, we will live the lives of brutes and without Faith, we cannot re-discover our true Source.
