Default Re: The Eye of the Heart

I don't think it is possible to destroy the Intellect. I do agree with you though that they sure try! But I think as long as a person is alive there is hope his/her Intellect will awaken. (We are made in God's image after all, despite all our failings and imperfections.) For some it takes a personal tragedy or serious trauma for it to awaken. Others seek to awaken it on purpose.

No. I'm all ears. I mean eyes. ;-)
