If we grew up in Christian homes and heard about Jesus all our lives, we shouldn’t believe we arrived at these theological positions through an independent navigation of our minds. We were just going with the flow, and there isn’t any genius in going with the flow. Show me a guy who was molested by a minister and still loves Jesus [Christ], and I’ll show you an genius. The stuff that guy would have had to think through in order to arrive at an affection for God is nothing short of miraculous.
