Gathering in Christ

Job 28:28
And to man He said, “Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom, and to depart from evil is understanding.”

The fact of every day and night reveal things our own minds cannot explain. When a scientific man comes across a gap in his explanations, instead of saying, “There is no gap here,” let him recognize that there is a gap he cannot bridge and that he must be reverent what he cannot understand. That “the exception proves the rule” is not true: the exception proves that the rule won’t do; the rule is useful only in the greatest number of cases… The man who bows down to scientific findings may be as big a fool as the man who refuses to do so. The man who prays ceases to be a fool, while the man who refuses to pray nourishes a blind life within his own brain, and he will find no way out on the road. Job [exclaims] that prayer is the only way out in all these matters.
