Either God is Binary or He Isn't.


There are two kinds of people.

  1. Those who put people into categories.

  2. Those who don't.

Are you in the first or second category? Most will deny living in the first category because it sounds so intolerant, but they actually do. Categorizing things helps to make sense of the world; is something true or false, real or fantasy, safe or dangerous, life-giving or cause for death? We live in a universe of binary logic. The device with which I write this article is full of 1's and 0's, or switches which are either on or off. You, the reader are deciding whether to agree with me, or disagree.

Binary Logic is also known as Boolean logic. Named after the nineteenth-century mathematician George Boole, it is a form of algebra in which all values are reduced to either TRUE or FALSE. Boolean logic is especially important for computer science because it fits nicely with the binary numbering system, in which each bit has a value of either 1 or 0. Amazing how this mathematics is discovered just as we need it, almost as if it were planned! Do you agree or disagree?

I had a discussion with an Atheist about axioms (ideas which are accepted as true without proofs). We even discussed as to which logic system to use in our analysis. My friend noted this system and that which worked with different specialized situations. They were all interesting until I realized that my friend was using binary logic to describe the different systems; ( i.e. It is THIS, and NOT that.) We then agreed to use binary logic.

It is the way the universe works.

For instance; the Milky Way either exists or it does not. Two objects cannot exist in the same space at the same time in the same way. God either exists, or He does not. If He exists, He is either the God as described in the Bible or not. Binary logic works, or it does not. The reader will either agree with me or will not.

Some people in today's culture are confused by such clarity. Many college students are unwilling to make clear distinctions between correct and incorrect, right and wrong, black and white, even male and female. They claim internal desire, subjective truth or opinion trumps objective truth. People actually think they are a woman trapped in a man's body, or a woman trapped in a man, some go so far as to identify as animals! Yet they cannot deny their gender and humanity despite donning their female, male, or animal costumes. All of this confusion confirms God's binary logic. These confused people are tolerant of things they ought not to be. Yet in their confusion they always measure themselves against a standard of right and wrong, holy and unholy. In other words, their thoughts grow dark, and foolish against the perfect standard of God. The Bible is clear on this matter.

It is written, 20 “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.”

Romans 1:20-21

God's Divine character is displayed in two categories. God either created the world, or He did not. Since God created the world, and the world works on binary logic, God's Divine character is displayed in truth and absence of truth, light and the absence of light, holiness and what is unholy. Jesus warns us He will separate these two categories of wise virgins from foolish, faithful servants from unfaithful, sheep from goats.

32 “All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. 34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.”

Matthew 25:32-34

Since you, the reader, are created in the image of God, this includes you. Just the simple act of either disagreeing or agreeing with me proves my point. You can't help living like the God who created you. Even if you rebel and pretend God does not exist, you can’t help but to live as if to confirm the God who made you.

The atheist uses logic and mathematics (which are either correct or not). Even though they are unable to account for it. They cannot account for it because they live in a universe of continual change or evolution. Yet expect one day to be like another, which is called induction. I have recently heard of some atheistic theories where logic and the laws of physics are not consistent, but evolve or change. Yet they live everyday as if laws of nature are immutable, or unchanging. Silly enough, ac
