Words of Comfort: I Want Logic.


"I want logic. Either God can do all things, or he can't. It's not a matter of whether or not he wants to. If you want to prove that to me, then you can try. But it needs to be done with logic and reason and evidence.” Brad Gurney

Okay, let's have some logic. Tell me, do you like a blue sky? Do you enjoy a good sunset? How about a sunrise? Where to you, is "here"? Pinpoint "now." Where is up (point to it)? Now point to down.

The sky isn’t blue. It doesn’t have any color to it. The sun never rises, nor does it set (the earth turns). “Now” cannot be pinpointed. The millisecond you pinpoint it, it becomes “then.” There is no such direction as up, or down. Those who point up in the northern hemisphere, point in a different direction to those at the equator or in the Southern Hemisphere.

We can’t be sure of anything. Two hundred years ago the thought of flying 400 people in a steel can at 33,000 feet was illogical and impossible. iPads are illogical. It makes no sense that someone can see me and talk to me at the speed of light from 7,000 miles away.

You say that these things become logical when explained.  That’s our point when it comes to God. If you want to shut your eyes to the genius of His handiwork (evidence for His existence) then go ahead, but make sure you realize that what you are doing is illogical, unreasonable, irrational and ridiculous, in the truest sense of the word.
