It is very difficult to be an intellectual and retain humility. It is only too easy to deify that which you serve in the quest for knowledge, that is, the human intellect. The Christian must not be ashamed to be humbled in his quest for knowledge by the fact that he can’t explain his faith in it’s entirety and not that he cannot be proud of the fact that he believes in God. Belief in God is a humbling thing. You can only be proud of a belief that God doesn’t exist because such a belief enables you to raise yourself up into His place.
