Augustine & Aquinas
Augustine- Faith is essential to know God but reason can help Christians understand their faith more and make sense of it in the Bible.
Aquinas- Reason is innate in us. 'Natural reason' has been put there by a rational God.
Both theists see faith as compatible.
Pascal and Kierkegaard
Pascal- Reason does not give us access to God only the heart does
Kierkegaard- we are all fallible creatures with a limited perspective.
Therefore they both believe reason takes us away from God who is revealed in the Bible
Makes God a mere object of study for philosophers who are interested in the debate.
