Yes it is, and that's because faith is irrational! And thanks to Loren for the full Luther quote.

Seems to me that was Martin Luther's line ... and after checking, here's the whole thing:

Reason is the greatest enemy that faith has; it never comes to the aid of spiritual things, but -- more frequently than not -- struggles against the divine Word, treating with contempt all that emanates from God.
-- Martin Luther
