Reason Sermon Illustrations

Polished steel will not shine in the dark; no more can reason, however refined, shine effectively but as it reflects the light of Divine truth, shed from heaven.—Foster


Sure, he that made us with such large discourse,
Looking before and after, gave us not
That capability and god-like reason
To fust in us unus'd.—Shakespeare


A carpenter sees by his eye, when he applies the square, whether the wood be straight or not; but yet his eye—without which he could not see—is not the judge to try whether the wood be straight or not; of that the square alone is the judge. So reason in man, without which, it is true, he could not judge, is not the square to try what is right or wrong in order to salvation. The Word of God alone can determine that.—Spencer
