This theory admittedly allows for the obscurity and liberty of faith, stressing the supernatural light that elevates the will and impels it to believe on God's authority. The will then gives an impulse to the intellect for belief as the authority of God behind the revealed proposition is acknowledged. Page 16 For all its acuity Billot's theory failed to indicate how the divine authority might be recognized unless by the intellect which would thereby include it under the motives of credibility.
