FAITH vs. LOGIC: Compatible or Contrary? Part Two

In part one of this article, we looked at the different sources of wisdom (sophia) and how they differ from one another. We also looked evidential logic that is, showing the evidence of something to be true in its assertions and suppositions, can lend credibility as a source for further true things as evidence is provided.
Such is the case where the Bible is concerned; it has statements about geography, archeology, history, things pertaining to the natural sciences that are true. Since they provide evidence that the Bible is true in these areas of knowledge, it stands to reason that the Bible could likewise be true in other areas of knowledge such as morality, spirituality, the nature of reality and of higher reality and of course knowledge in regards to theology in general, including doctrines of salvation, prophecy and others.
