A Voice from the Past - Charles Hodge

Every man, without a supernatural revelation, no matter how much of a philosopher, knows that death is the entrance on the unknown. It is the gate into darkness. Men must enter that gate conscious that they have within them an imperishable life combined with all the elements of perdition. Is it not self-evident then that immortal sinners need someone to answer with authority the question, What must I do to be saved?

Charles Hodge, 1797-1878, Systematic Theology, Vol. I Theology, Introduction, Chapter 3-- Rationalism, B, (2) (Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1982, p. 36).

Do we need revelation from God to make sense of life? Why?
