Beloved, I’d like to start a new series on Fridays that takes a quick look at the laws of logic, use of logic, and logical fallacies. Unfortunately logic is not taught in schools, which is genuinely a shame to see so many who have been taught what to think rather than how to think. Knowing some basics about logic can help in when we’re contending with the faith as well.
What is logic? That was a question I had to ask myself when I began to learn about these things. The dictionary defines logic like this “reasoning conducted or assessed according to strict principles of validity.” This means that logic is a way to correctly reason, which seems awfully important not to be taught in schools.
At its most fundamental level logic is actually an excellent proof of God. If you’re contending for the faith with an evolutionist recognizing that an unordered, random chance universe would not have laws of logic can be a great place to start. From there you can spring board into the need for a Law Giver to have a universe so well organized by the laws it obeys.
Over the next few weeks every Friday we’ll dig deeper into this topic, and eventually I hope to have some homeschooling materials available to you all matching what we’re going over. Next Friday we’ll discuss the three Laws of Logic, so stay tuned dear friends! As always, beloved, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
