Faith Ain’t Logical

chess board and a lewis carroll quote

When I find myself contemplating on God and, “What’s it all for?” I think about Alice in Wonderland. It’s wonderfully nonsensical.

Then in college, my Set Theory professor explained Lewis Carroll’s stories of nonsense were steeped with accurate mathematical definitions of logic.

It’s a strange world we live in. Things that are logical aren’t always sensible. The more we learn, the more aware we become of how little we know. It’s a maddening cycle.

Knowledge is kind of a B. There’s a reason why genius and insanity are hard to distinguish between.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. (Isaiah 55:8)

The more time I spend in the world, the more I find myself clinging to Proverbs 3:5.

Maybe I drank the Kool-Aid on this one, but I still have absolute faith in Him. Even if that faith doesn’t answer eloquently to my understanding of what’s logical.

  1. I appreciate your take on things. And you are correct about the studies. Lol… I remember several including the ones on eggs and tuna when I was younger. Lol and behold became an adult and all of a sudden the new study said they were fine. I believe when I get to be with Jesus I really won’t care about the answers to the questions I have now. I’ll just be glad to be with Him and that I made it.

  2. God is so profound, so immense like the ocean, and we are maybe one atom in a drop of water of that ocean! How could we understand Him?? However, what is important to us to make us grow in Christ is revealed to us at its due time through the Holy Spirit.
    Such an amazing God!!! I’m glad He’s much smarter than me! 🙂
