the wisdom of God and human wisdom

Arius's appeal to what he considered the logic of monotheism illustrates a recurring tendency throughout Christian history to subject facts of divine revelation to current conceptions of "the reasonable." . . . the turning point in Christian history represented by the Nicene Creed was the church's critical choice for the wisdom of God in preference to human wisdom. Theologically considered, no decision could ever be more important.
