Three Kinds

Russian author Leo Tolstoy, believed there were two kinds of people who followed two very different methods of human activity.  One uses their reason to learn what is good and what is bad, and they act according to this knowledge.  The other act as they want to, and then they use their reason to prove that which they did was good and that which they didn’t do was bad.

That certainly is a true analysis, and I would hope to be in the first group instead of the second. However, I believe there is a third kind of person, a rare type, who participates in a special kind of human activity. This group is not opposed to reason, but does use something more profound and reliable to learn what is good and what is bad.

​The Christian looks to divine Scripture, and the abiding presence of God’s Holy Spirit, to both know and to do what is good, while doing their best to avoid what is bad.

​Take Away:
Faith can be a reasonable approach to decision making.
