following Jesus is not a crucifixion of our intellect

“It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God'” (Matthew 4:4).  “Anybody can believe IN God. What it means to be a Christian is to trust Him when He speaks, which does not require a leap of faith or a crucifixion of the intellect.  It requires a crucifixion of pride, because no one is more trustworthy than God.”

–R.C. Sproul (Romans)
