Logic can be dangerous concerning spiritual things. Not because reason must be set aside for faith, but because it’s according to “something” or “someone”. In the case of spiritual matters, reason according to God is the only rationale worth pursuing; and the Bible says the deep things of God are only discernable by the Holy Spirit. Ponder this:

“But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God…but the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” – 1 Corinthians 2:10, 14 NKJV

The scripture teaches that there are many deep things of God we can’t understand. For example, Job was an incredibly righteous man with integrity, prayerfulness, and commitment; but there was still much more to the picture than he knew. When God eventually spoke to him from the whirlwind, he understood the immeasurable scope of God’s nature.

Since your Bible contains God’s revelations about Himself, humanity, how to know Him and how to live, do you have a working knowledge of it? Are you trying to increase that amount? The things of God are spiritually discerned…
