In a fascinating post drawn from Alex Poulos' blog, ETC's Peter Gurry notes this from Origen:
"As such, it’s reasonable for one to have faith in the maker of heaven and earth and all within them more because of the universe and the order in it, than because of the scriptures. Likewise, it’s reasonable for one to believe in Christ Jesus more because of the clear display of his power in the churches, and from the multitude of the might he shows in ruling the world, than because the scriptures. Only afterwards should one then come to the scriptures, and even then, one should ask again for grace from God, so that we don’t misunderstand what has been written."
Food for thought for us Sola Scriptura folk???
Of course Origen was not correct on all things theological ...
