Divining the gist

Not merely learning about divine things but also experiencing them – that does not come from mere intellectual acquaintance with the terms of scientific theology, but from loving the things of God and cleaving to them by affection. . . . Thus, by the settled bent of his affections, a virtuous man is well apt to judge straightaway the affairs of virtue; so also the lover of divine matters divinely catches their gist.
