    “Learning with the Heart” The Present Truth, 12, 19.

    E. J. Waggoner

    “With the heart man believeth unto righteousness.” Romans 10:10. The things of God are revealed not to the head but to the heart. Belief is not a mere intellectual assent to what God says, it is the acceptance of what He says in the heart-the seat of life. It is true that the mind of the man who believes with the heart will actively grasp the truths of the Word-for the mind of Christ is an active mind-but he who thinks to study into the mystery of God just as he would apply the mind to any problem within the range of human knowledge will fail.PTUK May 5, 1896, page 288.20

    The knowledge of God is salvation; it is a matter of a new life, and it is with the heart that every man must believe his way into its mysteries,-mysterious only as the finite mind attempts to state them in human language, but simplicity itself as received into the life by the working of the mighty power of God. “Behold, God exalteth by His power; who teacheth like Him?” Job 31:22. He teaches His ways by living His way in the heart that yields to Him.PTUK May 5, 1896, page 288.21

    When one is ill and weak, so that the mind is unable to think clearly, even then may he know in his heart that God is good. And he who is blessed with the strongest mind will find his perception of Divine truth growing keener just in proportion as He recognises the fact, that as all truth is in Jesus Christ, so it is revealed only as the heart receives them into the life. “With the heart man believeth.”PTUK May 5, 1896, page 288.22
