Reasoning from a spiritual basis

We can persistently contend for what divine logic tells us—that because God, good, made all, we reflect God in our spiritual identity, which must be good.

Most people use logical reasoning at some point in their day to make decisions as well as to plan and organize their activities. Logic implies correct reasoning from principles that are accepted to be true.

The Bible gives us examples of reasoning from a spiritual basis. The book of John starts with the basic spiritual fact that “all things were made by [God]” (1:3). Later in the same Gospel, Jesus states, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (4:24) and explains his spiritual nature when he says, “I and my Father are one” (10:30). To me, Jesus is presenting this reasoning: God is Spirit and made all things; therefore, God’s offspring must be spiritual, like Him. It’s a package deal, you might say.

How does that apply to our lives? Since all things were made by God, Spirit, you and I and everyone must have been made by Spirit. Therefore, we are spiritual creations or ideas, and the source of ideas is God, divine Mind.
