Deductive Reasoning in the Bible

By: Alex Kelley and Ruthie Evans
Inductive Reasoning
Inductive reasoning is a method in which people use to make specific observations. When using inductive reasoning, the observations are not necessarily the best observations. The observations made while using inductive reasoning are facts from unreliable resources. Inductive reasoning is helpful in some situations in which there is no time to prove a statement and the statement just needs to be said.


Deductive Reasoning
Deductive reasoning is a method in which facts and research are used to help prove and conclude a certain point. When using deductive reasoning it is important to use well-researched facts and points. A way people use deductive reasoning in real life would be for a project or any type of debate.
Intro
Throughout the Bible, God gives His people many great words of wisdom that help in any situation. To get these messages to His people in a persuasive type of way , God uses deductive reasoning. This means that God uses facts and reason to make His point;but, since God is perfect, everything He says is factual which means without facts and research God already uses deductive reasoning. An example of God's deductive reasoning through His word is 2 Peter 1:3-11.
2 Peter 1:3-11
3 His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.
10 Therefore, my brothers and sisters,[a] make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, 11 and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Reason for Reason
The Bible's use of deductive reasoning allows the reader to be certain that they can be with The Lord and they can know how to grow in a relationship with Him.
Personal Reflection
Deductive reasoning is important and the fact that God used deductive reasoning in His word makes it more special. God used deductive reasoning to help His people by giving them instruction with well-given detail backed up with evidence. Overall, not only deductive but also inductive reasoning are important qualities that can be used in many different areas in life.
