Quote From Michael Horton

“While the Reformed evangelists of the Great Awakening were also presidents of Princeton and Yale, evangelists since Charles Finney have actually boasted in their lack of education. Evangelicalism has a legacy of anti-intellectualism that has not only crippled its witness to the watching world, but has also opened the church itself up to the most remarkable reaches of stupidity and incredulity. Anti-intellectualism is not humble. Humility says, “I don’t know, but I’ll have to look into that.” Pride says, “I don’t know, and that’s okay.” To conclude that things which are beyond my reach of knowledge, insight, or experience are not worth knowing is the height of arrogance. I am not the measure of all values, all truths, and all meanings. Circumventing thought processes, it is a mere act of will that attempts to pick up the slack of our lazy thinking.”

– Michael Horton
