Justin Martyr on Reason

2013/11/01 § 2 Comments

Whatever has been uttered aright by any men in any place belongs to us Christians; for, next to God, we worship and love the reason (Word) which is from the unbegotten and ineffable God; since on our account He has been made man, that, being made partaker of our sufferings, he may also bring us healing. For all the authors were able to see the truth darkly, through the implanted seed of reason (Word) dwelling in them. For the seed and imitation of a thing, given according to a man’s capacity is one thing; far differing is the thing itself, the sharing of which and its representation is given according to his grace.

–Justin Martyr, Apology
