Witness Greater Than Reason

God has given enough reason in this world to make faith a most reasonable thing. But he has left out enough to make it impossible to live by reason alone.

Blaise Pascal is considered one of history's greatest scientists. But Pascal's conversion was not through his scientific queries.

When his carriage was once suspended on a bridge, hanging between life and death, the only thing Pascal could think of was the Christian conviction of his sister and the witness of Christ she had in his life.

He was the inventor of the barometer. He was tremendously brilliant as a philosophical scientist. But the one thing that kept piercing his heart was not the scientific laws, it was the Christian witness of his sister.
