J. Gresham Machen on Faith and Knowledge

“Faith is indeed intellectual; It involves an apprehension of certain things as facts; and vain is the modern effort to divorce faith from knowledge. But although faith is intellectual, it is not only intellectual. You cannot have faith without having knowledge; but you will not have faith if you only have knowledge.”

– J. Gresham Machen,

What is Faith? (Carlisle, PA: The Banner of Truth Trust, 1991), p. 203.
