Paul was discussing who should speak and how meetings should be conducted in the church, and makes these statements: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us (John 1:1-3, 14)Logos, when it refers to discourse, is regarded as the orderly linking and knitting together in connected arrangement of words of the inward thoughts and feelings of the mind. In the first chapter of John, Jesus Christ in His preincarnate state is called One of the most well-known names of Jesus carries with it a testament to God’s reason, intellect, and logic.
It is a key role of Jesus Christ to express intelligence — to communicate the thoughts of God in a way that people can understand.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.” (Is. Lewis is the perfect person to bring in on this discussion.
55:8-9) Rather than assume there’s something lacking in God when we can’t understand Him and then reacting with hostility or disgust (by the end of John 8 the Jews were trying to stone Jesus), let’s follow James’ advice. He was a very logical, rational Christian (probably an INTJ, for those of you who like Myers-Briggs).
I know “intellectually” that God exists and that the Bible makes sense, but for me personally the feeling of Him being real and present and in a relationship with me seems more important.
This has frustrated some of the more rational, logical people I’ve talked to.
It’s really rather absurd to think there’s something wrong with God because we don’t understand Him perfectly.
Scientists have been doing this for years, and many come to the conclusion that God is the only explanation for how the universe is so perfectly put together.That is why Faith is such a necessary virtue: unless you teach your moods “where they get off,” you can never be either a sound Christian or even a sound atheist, but just a creature dithering to and fro, with its beliefs really dependent on the weather and the state of its digestion.( That’s why it’s dangerous to try and base your faith on emotions alone.For moods will change, whatever view your reason takes. Now that I am a Christian I do have moods in which the whole thing looks very improbable: but when I was an atheist I had moods in which Christianity looked terribly probable.This rebellion of your moods against your real self is going to come anyway.
