So, faith (in a religious sense) is exclusive of reality?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32076855

thats non-sense. Faith and logic are not mutually exclusive.
 Quoting: chrion777

Agreed. Faith and logic are aspects of the Human Soul. They are both roads to find not only Truth, but also God. Since we cannot tease out and seperate Logic from the Soul as a discrete part, then we cannot use merely logic to encounter God by definition.

We are not logic, we use logic. Logic (for some of us, not so much in others) is an aspect of the Soul. The Soul is the summation of our consciousness. To use only logic would be using only a part. A part cannot be superior to the whole. Using the whole mathematically would exceed using a part. Since Logic is a part, and a Soul is the whole, then using the Soul would result in a greater understand of God, not less.

 Quoting: Don'tBeAfraid

How about applying logic to the line of thought you posted?

It doesn't make any sense whatsoever. What is for example the logic behind the concept of soul? How can logic be applied to understanding the concept of God? What logic is behind stating that logic is a part, and a soul the whole?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22089462

For that answer, and not to detract from the topic at hand, see the link in my sig about the Soul for a long discussion of that.

In brief:
Logic is defined as "Reasoning conducted or assessed according to strict principles of validity".

Reason is defined as "Think, understand, and form judgments by a process of logic".

Both of those are aspects of consciousness. They are not consciousness, for that is the summation of being.

The soul is consciousness. It is that aspect of being which exists in a timeless way.

Therefore the soul is the whole of being and so more than logic or reason.

One definition of God is the Source of All Being or Ultimate Reality.

Our souls are being. God is Being. God is All Existence.
