A question facing every Evangelical theologian is this: am I going to accept the whole of the Bible as God's unique and inerrant self-revelation - and the only light by which I see - or will I impose my own system of thought upon it?
I totally agree. The thing is I think that when most people, especially non-Christians, see something like that they think that means Christians think that if something in the Bible or our theology we should just turn our minds off. This not what Christians believe we should do at all. It's not Scripture is the only light by which we see because that we have chosen to blind ourselves to everything else. Scripture is the only light there is by which we can completely see reality even when we don't understand everything..
