More on witches and ghosts from Herman Bavinck

Within an hour of yesterday’s post on Bavinck, I read something similar a few pages on:

One arrives at metaphysics, at a philosophy of religion, only if from another source one has gained the certainty that religion is not just an interesting phenomenon– comparable to belief in witches and ghosts– but truth, the truth that God exists, reveals himself, and is knowable.
(Reformed Dogmatics, p. 74)

In other words, if you don’t start with God there is not really any way to get to God.
