Logic?


“The miracle of Chanuka was that one flask of oil burned for eight days. Some say the oil burned, but new oil miraculously appeared each day. Some say the oil wasn’t really burning, that the flame was miraculous. The theories go on and on.

Why do we limit G-d with our logic?  Say simply the flame was burning oil, but the oil was not burning! G-d can do anything. He could even, as the saying goes, “fit an elephant through the eye of a needle.” So, how would He do it?  Would He make the elephant smaller? Or would He expand the eye of the needle? Neither. The elephant would remain big, the eye of the needle small. And He would fit the elephant through the eye of the needle. Illogical? True. But logic is just another of His creations.

He who created logic is permitted to disregard it. Impossible? Plant a seed and watch it grow. And greater by order of magnitude: Plant good deeds and watch with wonder the miracles that ensue.” – Bringing Heaven Down to Earth by Tzvi Freeman
