Reason and Revelation

The thought which suggests this article is not new, I take it, but recent circumstances have brought it to me afresh, and I have wondered if it is not the greatest stumbling-block in the way of Truth-seekers. It is this: That a vast number of people seem to be seeking that which they think is Truth, or rather that which coincides with human reason, and some even go so far as to quote from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker G. Eddy, where the author says "reason and revelation must coincide."

Surely this can never be construed to mean that that which appears to human reason as revelation is true, but rather that revelation which corrects human reason—this is Truth.
