Authority for Reason

“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead.” (Rom. 1:20)

According to St. Thomas this verse gives Christians the authority to demonstrate God’s existence based on natural reason.  Although, one must remember, as Fergus Kerr points out, one must believe in order to properly use reason.
