Hey everyone, I was having a very interesting conversation with a friend of mine recently, and we started talking about logic (don't ask me how we got there, I've got a horrible memory.) Anyways, later in the conversation I said "You can't know God through logic alone." He didn't agree.
What you should know is that my friend is really big on philosophy. He loves reading stuff like Plato, Aristotle, Locke, Hobbes, Descartes, etc . What he got from all that stuff is a strong belief in logic and how logic is the most important thing in a man. I don't agree, however, I'm a horrible debator, a can never make a good argument. What I tried to say was that you can only know God through your heart, that to be with God is to love God, not to reason to him. I made an analogy that logic vs. emotion is like water vs. oil, they never mix.
What do you guys think of this? "Can you know God through logic alone?" Thanks very much, God be with you. +
