LAYMAN'S THOUGHTS


 

 

REASON AND THE CATHOLIC FAITH

Reason is so important for one to have conviction of his religion, especially the Catholic Faith.  Chesterton, a Catholic convert from Anglicanism, said that, if everybody sits down and thinks, the world would be Catholic. 

If one is emotional,  it is more likely he will completely miss the Catholic Faith.  The Catholic religion, from its first step to the last, consists of rational acts.  

To reach the concept of one God, one has to reason logically.  The Greek philosophers, like Aristotle, reached the concept of one God by logic and that amidst the culture of polytheism.  Truly it would be illogical to believe there are many gods.  Why, they would be fighting each other all the time and that precisely happened to the gods of the Greeks.
