Abstract

133 urges his hearers to "remember that God, who chose by the foolish- ness of the preaching to save those who believed, has given in advance many principles from nature which prove the credibility of miracles." This statement is a complete distortion of the Pauline doctrine, although we must admit that Paul also uses "proofs" from nature. But 1 Corinthians 2, 14 tells us that "the natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot know them, for they are spiritually discerned." Miracles are known only spiritually; they are known only to faith through faith in faith. Does this mean that we should "believe all things" as well as ,,hope all things"? I do not think so, for we actually walk by sight as well as by faith, and we cannot deny the rightful claims of the natural man. We must even distinguish, as W. G. K ii m m e 1 has This statement is a complete distortion of the Pauline doctrine, argued°), between "adequate" and "inadequate" myths, myths which are central to the Christian religion and those which are not. For example, the resurrection
