Christian: "Logic is the devil's work and has nothing to do with faith"

A Christian just told me this today.

Christians, does this sort if thinking make you proud? You don't feel embarrassed knowing that your religion requires you to not think logically?

    It's weird cuz I had relatives who told me the same thing. They said I "think too much" and that's the reason I don't believe. I asked them, am I supposed to turn dumb to believe in Christianity? They got real silent after that.

    While there is another dimension of existence, the spiritual, or the meta, which we haven't even gotten near getting our heads around. I don't think just throwing logic to the burning bushes is intelligent either.

    i didn't want to respond and probably won't say more on this, but anybody that thinks one random Christian's unbiblical response speaks for what the Bible says in context (when it doesn't say logic is in any way against Christianity) makes a Christian feel any type of way is very poorly educated on what the Bible says.

    Did you hear what Neil Armstrong said about a dog with five legs and those who don't believe in God?

    Do you agree that logic is in opposition to faith?

    Yes or no

    I kind of agree. Like if I am practicing listening to that "inner voice" or "intuition", logic will fail you.

    That's if you're a naturally illogical mindstate

    Christians identify with one another based on the retarded shit that constitutes Christianity.

    People who don't believe in Christianity don't have to do that.

    No, but when I come across some guy like Dawkins or Sam Harris who make statements about their reasoning I contrast it with my own to compare thinking. My own beliefs are immediately accessible to me, but the beliefs of others are not. In order to make that comparison, it is necessary to ask other Christians.

    As a nonChristian,

    I will say that Logic and the irrational are two sides of the same coin. Logic is the core of the ego. The ego's job is to help you survive. The Irrational is the heart of the subconscious things like intuition, low key telepathy, gut feelings, even faith, prayer. Those are irrational things, and if you are a christian you are supposed to give yourself over to the foolishness of christ rather than the wisdom of men. 1 Corinthians Chapter 1


    A lot of so called christians don't read the bible at all. If you are a christian you are to be separate from the world to remove all worldly influences that would divert your attention and focus from your god. @DoUwant2go2Heaven
    Should co sign me. But even if he doesn't, my past life as a fundamental christian gave me insight to the bible I hadn't learned in my previous years.

    The science of intuition

    Logic is slow and very analytical, but it's also necessary when you have to do long and drawn out processes.

    I watched a thing on our hearts and how it was able to tell roughly 3-5 seconds before something happened that something was going to happen. Obviously not scary but like the decks of cards, I think it was pictures. I can't find the video now cuz I don't bookmark shit cuz if you found it once you can find it again on the internet! shitty as motto.

    They used to have this website "pick the perp" or something like that. It lined up 4/5 people and then one crime was detailed and you had to guess which one did it. We would turn our backs and have the other person read the crime and the other guess without seeing the picture who did it. We were more accurate when we didn't see the pictures. Another friend of mine we used to use a dice and predict what number was going to roll. Again if we didn't think about it and just blurted out the first # to "come" to us, we were more accurate. I used to use cards with the girls, we would each take turns practicing guessing the card. You really have to practice not thinking.
