The Truth Is God
Yet these. precepts of truth and correct principles always give consistent results. And they work together. in harmony without ever contradicting themselves. So they testify. to the faithful endurance of logic itself. And this demonstrates that logic is the ultimate controlling force. 10 . For logic ultimately determines all things. It decides what the facts will be. It contains. all the knowledge of reality. It exists everywhere; it lives forever. For logic is God Almighty! 11 . God is perfect righteousness! He is reason, truth, and the life of all things. He is perfect. understanding; he created all things, and he holds it together by his mighty strength. He is the one. who made heaven and earth. He is the one who brought life to birth. He is the one. who existed first. And he is the one who will exist in the end. . Yet there is only one God who is responsible for everything that happens in the world. For two inconsistent facts. from two independent gods cannot both exist in the world in which we live. And if anything else were. God, you would ask, how does that stand to reason. So reason itself is God who governs all creation. . So you cannot prove that there is no God. For you would only admit by the very act. of presenting your argument that logic indeed determines the facts, and so thus it must exist...
10. here I'm casting logic into the role of God and angels into the role of principles of reason. For the logic that maintains the consistency of all facts seems to exists everywhere at all times and controls everything. So it is eternal, omnipresent, and all powerful like God.
11. See John 1:1, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God." The use of "Word" is a translation of the original Greek word "logos" which also mean reasoning. The word "logic" is also derived from the same Greek word "logos". So I think it's fair to say God is Logic. In Genesis God spoke and the world was created. One can only state propositions. And another term for word is proposition. This seems to indicate that the logic of propositions was used to create the universe.
