Reasoning With God
The purpose of this website is to encourage each of us to honestly reason with God and each other.
God says He wants us to “reason” with Him, Is 1:18, “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” But what does “reasoning” really mean, and why is it so important?
Merriam-Webster defines reasoning as: “The process of thinking about something in a logical way to form a conclusion or judgment; the ability of the mind to think and understand things in a logical way.”
God has given us the Bible to reason with, 1 Thes 5:21, “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good” and for the times we are confused, He has sent us the Holy Spirit to guide us through His Word, Jn 16:13, “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.”
God does not want us to just memorize the Bible without thinking and He surely does not want us to accept anyone’s biblical propaganda. He calls us to reason. God wants us to think about what He is telling us, so that we might come to the Truth that He is love and He loves us. Reasoning is a lifetime journey of becoming the person He created us capable of becoming.
