Why Study Natural Theology? - R.L. Dabney Answers

“It may be asked, if Natural Theology cannot save, why study it?

I answer: 1st. It teaches some truths; and no truth is valueless. 2d. When Revelation comes, Natural Theology gives satisfaction to the mind, by showing us two independent lines of proof for sundry great propositions[.] 3d. It excites the craving of the soul for a Revelation. 4th. When that comes, it assists us to verify it, because it meets the very wants which Natural Theology has discovered.” — Robert Lewis Dabney, Systematic Theology, Lecture VII, p. 77) — HT: Daniel Kok
