    This quote is interesting because I know many “thinking men” who consider themselves Christians, myself included. I wonder if that is part of the point.

    In the Gospel of John, Jesus goes into a long tirade against the “thinking men” of his time. Maybe it is the case that the thinkers are not really the believers, even as they put their thinking to the mission of validating belief.
