So when we contrast reason with faith, we are actually contrasting two gifts. The latter is obviously a gift, but the less obvious gift-character of the former must also be acknowledged. Ultimately the only difference between reason and faith is the extent to which they can be grounded. Reason can provide a little more of a “ground” for itself than faith can, but neither can truly be grounded. The problem is that reason often takes itself as being able to provide a ground and thus offer the last word. That is when reason goes wrong. If we cling to reason and refuse to see its limits, then we profess wisdom and become fools (Rom. 1:22).
