John Stott – The Fall has not Completely Destroyed our Minds – Why We Should Use our Minds “Christianly” 4

What Scripture teaches concerning man’s basic rationality, constituted by his creation and not altogether destroyed by the fall, secular society everywhere assumes. [For example,] advertisers may address their appeal to our baser appetites, but they take for granted our ability to distinguish between products. […] It is assumed that even criminal behavior has a motivation of some kind. The process of “rationalization” …indicates that man has been constituted such a rational being that if he has no reasons for his behavior he has to invent some in order to live with himself.

-John Stott, Your Mind Matters, 17-18.
