What’s With The Title?

I titled my blog “If We Will Live” because I will talk about important matters—life, reason, and faith.

Not all people chose to fully live. Even for those who intend to live, not all paths lead to life. What is the way of life? That is my question. I answer that the way of life must be discovered. I give three foundational principles:

1. If a man will live fully, he must choose to value his own life. He must be committed fully to his own well-being. The choice to live precedes all other values. It is the first value.

2. If a man will live fully, he must choose to value reason—he must treat reason as an absolute. Reason is man’s main tool for attaining life. It is the first virtue.

3. If a man will live fully, he must choose to value faith. Faith in the God of Scripture is reasonable. God’s way is the way to life.

Therefore, if we will live, we must chose life, reason, and faith. The logical order matters. In all future posts I will work within the context of this claim, seeking to demonstrate it and elaborate upon it.
