Vern Poythress on God and Logic


“There is only one Absolute, God himself.  Logic is in fact an aspect of his character, because it expresses the consistency of God and the faithfulness of God.  Consistency and faithfulness belong to the character of God.  We can say that they are attributes of God.   God is who he is (Ex. 3:14), and what he is includes his consistency and faithfulness.  There is nothing more ultimate than God.  So God is the source for logic.  The character of God includes his logicality.” 

Quoted from his book “Logic: A God Centered Approach to the Foundation of Western Thought” pg. 63
