Logic vs. Reason: What is the Difference

Logic vs. Reason
 
What is the Difference
 
The difference has to do with the source. Logic stands in the signature to discover while reason has to do with faith.
 
The scholastic doctrines of man leave out the reason for faith.
 
When knowledge is measured to self, it’s on the scale of logic piecing together facts that center on the limited experience and education of the world (wisdom of man).
 
But reason reflects the revelation of God outside of logic.
As an example it is not logical for the Red Sea to open but it stands to reason that it will because God already established His trust in me by teaching me His mercy.
 
The carnal minded believer allows logic to rule his faith and he will always stand in doubt of God's involvement. This is evidenced in their sluggish faith and weak will.
 
How can this be possible that "a little child shall lead them?"
It insults the careful efforts of scholastic studies to arrive at a level of faith through the text.
The boast is lost by the presence of faith which accepts the conditions though they speak contrary to the logic.
 
 Isaiah 11:6 “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.”
 
Logic demands facts to qualify the revelation while God uses whom He wills. Like the leaders of the covenant were fishermen.
 
The Pharisees refused the "stone" stumbling in their logic that uneducated fishermen were to teach them the truth.
 
Matthew 18:5  “And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.”
 
The wisdom of God robs the wicked of their boast. You have to submit to the government that God sanctifies for faith.
 
There own logic spoke truth to themselves but not faith which is beyond the limits of their choices of leadership.
 
We witness this today in the choices of stewardship that God selected one man to represent His key for the church.
 
It’s beyond the limits of logic but stands in the reason of faith.
The carnal minded wish to see the results unfold to their logic before they believe as the Thomas-christian.
 
If Abraham was snared in logic he would never have be called the "friend" of God. To sacrifice Isaac is illogical but since it’s God speaking its reason of faith.
 
Abraham believed God and He imputed that to him for righteousness. This challenge stood outside of Abraham’s logic but the revelation opened the heart for faith. His choice of reason was to obey the grace and leave the results with God.
 
Matthew 11:6 “And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.”
 
The Stone of stumbling and the Rock of offence will always exist until the end of the millennium .
 
Blessed are they that shall not be offended in me! The Jacob-Christian.

Beware of the Antichrist Spirit
Every tragedy causes man to question his worth and so people begin the journey of reflection until Satan again provides the option for them to reject the grace of God.

What is on the Atheists Mind: Guilty Conscience
The conscience sees its Master’s art and shouts to the reason. All nature carries the testimony of a divine design and the conscience of all humans observe with awe the expanses of the universe, power of the oceans, majesty of the mountains. Why do we associate with beauty and abhor anything less?   more...
The Truth About Toxins
Spiritually speaking the human diet is not good regarding the truth of conflict and the battles of the soul. For the habit of life and the signature of the soul play into Satan’s hands for him to craft a prejudice in your perceptions about God and His care for you. The suffering of this world is engrafted by the habits of life and then once converted into the covenant one would think those things are gone which oppressed you to begin to seek the Lord for deliverance and to know Him. Those toxins of the past remain for the testing of the faith in the choices of His kingdom.   more...

Read the parable of God given to us for our faith as the mystery of the Father takes us on a journey of creation and the design of the soul and spirit of man.   more...
Apostles Today: The Spiritual Gage Of Approval-Apostolic Reform
God has given to His church the true gage of approval through His sanctified stewardship for the faith the church to be perfect. When the pattern is lost by neglect then Satan replaces the original gage with a placebo and under this spell people set their own doctrinal standards by the plastic shekel. Throw away those evil tokens and put on Jesus Christ who is the true shekel of the sanctuary and House of God.   more...
