You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.

— Deuteronomy 6:5

Some quotes from J.P. Moreland’s book, Love Your God With All Your Mind.

Faith is not “a blind act of will” but “is a power or skill to act in accordance with the nature of the kingdom of God, a trust in what we have reason to believe is true.”

“…[F]aith is built on reason.  We should have good reason for thinking that Christianity is true before we dedicate ourselves completely to it.”
