@Pyrrho,
YOu make 2 HUGE logic errors here

First of all, Reason can and often does say, I know this is where the Truth is and I also know it is not accessible to me alone. So , If Jesus is the Son of God what He says is more certain than anything
--But that leads right to your second error, to make everything a matter
of intellect as if we had no will at all

elief can never be halfhearted. […] There may be plenty of compelling arguments for a man’s credibility; but no argument can force us to believe him.” (35)

“Newman is forever stressing […] the one idea that belief is something other than the result of a logical process; it is precisely not ‘a conclusion from premises’. ‘For directly you have a conviction that you ought to believe, reason has done its part, and what is wanted for faith is, not proof, but will.’” (35-36)


“No one who believes must believe; belief is by its nature a free act.” (49)

@Pyrrho,
And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. Have faith in that.
