What do you think about that quote?

My old church put that up today and all I could think was "Great! You just called all your congregants stupid! Great job!"

I don't think it is Biblical.

 I don't find it insulting at all. It is true that our intellect naturally looks for proof of something whereas our spirit does not.

No, that is not what he was saying.

Yes it is.

Quoting B1Bomber:

Actually, the New Testament is very clear that we are to be able to defend our faith to the questioners. There are many references to the wisdom of God being folly to the world, so a secular intellect will not see God, but wisdom and knowledge go hand in hand with seeking God.

Wow.

I would heartily disagree. If intellect does not 'see god' one might (or rather SHOULD) question the validity of the whole thing altogether.

Yes, that is true. What makes sense to those who know God won't be understandable to those who don't. There are some things however, such as speaking in tongues, that are for edifying our spirits and not our minds.
