This is from Dallas Willard’s The Great Omission. I don’t really recommend the book, but one chapter was pure gold.
It requires the will to be logical (182).
- freedom from distraction
- willingness to follow truth wherever it takes
Committed to logic as a “fundamental value” (183).
Jesus uses enthymemes.
And if anyone says, “Logic kills spiritual experience,” or “that is a Western thing,” all I can respond is you are not being faithful to the example of Jesus. Take it up with him.
