If we desire to have religious beliefs…

If we desire to have religious beliefs that are true, then we must be careful about how we arrive at those religious beliefs. If we prefer to have theological reality rather than some religious placebo, we need to consider the manner in which we conduct our investigation. And the first order of business is to be clear about our starting-point and the logical progression of our inquiry. Therefore, … we must first consider what concept of God it is most reasonable for us to hold.

Douglas Geivett, from Jesus Under Fire, by J. P. Moreland, p. 181
