Lecture 26, The Enlightenment (Part 2):
During the Enlightenment, many minds were at work to rid society of religion. One way was to disregard Scripture and use only what is observed in nature and deduced by reason as the means of understanding our place in this world. Does nature prove that we are born sinners in need of redemption or have we been corrupted by a religious society? Continuing this series on the Consequences of Ideas, Dr. Sproul explains the thoughts of some of the major thinkers of the Enlightenment era, and their effects on us today.
