"First, no one can truly believe that the Bible is the Word of God unless he is already a Christian. That may sound like a paradox, but it is not. The understanding of the fact that the Bible is truly the Word of God does not come first. New life comes first. [1]"

"The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit."

1 Corinthians 2:14 Bible-icon.png
"If religion is essentially the inner life, it follows that it can be truly grasped only from within. But beyond a doubt, this can be better done by one in whose inward consciousness an experience of religion plays a part. There is but too much danger that the [nonbeliever] will talk of religion as a blind man might of colors, or one totally devoid of ear of a beautiful musical composition.[2]"
