Should we love God with our heart or our mind?

While getting my undergrad in theology, I remember people telling me to be careful not to look at God and scripture only with an academic lens. It is common to think that studying theology and apologetics will cause someone to develop an academic approach to their relationship with God. It happens to people all the time, and it is something we have to be careful of. But because of this, some are afraid to learn more about God in order to maintain their emotional or relational connection with Him. Do we have to pick between these two? Listen here and find out!
