Just a few remarks. Since our mind has/acquired a rationalizing ability and our faith encompasses this ability even to respond to heretical thoughts (or discern what is heretical and what isn’t), we have to understand and experience God even in this ability of ours, in any case to exercise our freedom to explore possibilities and form our churces. Intellectual/rationalizing thinking is not to be abandoned nor does it ‘slaughter’ the heart by itself, as it did not in the very old church that we admire. Compared with St Maximus Confessor our ‘intelligentsia’ is not more but less intelligent, with a weaker rationalizing power. We may understand the superiority of the heart, but this understanding too needs the intellectual ability.
