The Truth Is God
The truth is. God exists. And the proof is reality has cohesiveness. For all of reality does. consist of all the facts that do exist. And all the facts must agree and coexist in harmony. If any two facts. both exist, then the first will never prove that the second fact is not true. And if one, true fact. proves a second too, then a third, true fact will never prove that the second fact is not true. But if a fact. that is assumed does not agree with what is proved, then the fact that was assumed is in fact not the truth. . Can one thing have a measure of two different values at the same time? Can two things occupy the exact same place at one given time? Two inconsistent facts. that do not agree cannot both exist simultaneously. . If one, true fact proves that a second exists, but a third, true fact proves that the second doesn't, then all of reality has been reduced to absolute, absurd nonsense. . For either a fact is true, or it is false. It cannot be both right and wrong. 1 But if in truth. the fact exists, then it must coexist with all the rest so that all the facts agree with it and nothing contradicts. 2 Yet, if one assumed fact. proves a second is true, then this does not mean that we may conclude that the second fact proves that the first one is true. The second may be true,. though not the first. Or the second may be proved by perhaps a third. . But if the first fact proves that the second is true, then this does mean that we must conclude that if the second is false, then the first is false too. 3... These beginning chapters are an attempt to morph the language of logic into language that uses spiritual terms. The ancient intuitions have a basis in reason. And this book tries to make that clear. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, then try reading the article here. I wanted to provide some rhyme and reason about noble themes. But if these words seem pretentious, try accepting it as a private mediation that I'm sharing with you. Or search the Table of Contents for particular subjects that may interest you.
1. here are some Scriptures that describe principles of logic: 1 John 4:6, 2 Corinthians 1:18, Psalms 52:3, 1 Kings 18:21, Deuteronomy 30:19, Genesis 3:5, 3:22.
2. The truths of logic were known to the ancient Greek philosophers as far back as 500 BC to such men as Socrates, Aristotle, and Plato.
3. These verses describe the relationship in logic of material implication. Material implication occurs when one statement proves another statement. If one statement proves or implies another, then a true statement can prove a true statement, a false statement can prove a false statement, and even a false statement can prove a true statement. But a true statement cannot prove a false statement. See 1 John 2:21.
