"One great reason why men have stumbled so frequently in many of their researches after philosophical truth is that they have sought them with their own intelligence, and have not sought unto God for that wisdom that fills and governs the universe and regulates all things. That is one great difficulty with the philosophers of the world, as it now exists, that man claims to himself to be the inventor of everything he discovers. Any new law and principle which he happens to discover he claims to himself instead of giving glory to God."
John Taylor, The Gospel Kingdom
That is one of the great down falls of our society, is that we as a nation have forgotten God in our every day lives. We are seeing people take Him out of everything and therefore we forget to give thanks to Him for the things we accomplish. It is not by our own intelligence as mankind that we have brought so many great things to pass but by the mercy and love of God that all these things are possible.
