There’s many ways to explain logic but perhaps a simple way to describe it is that: Logic is the map the mind uses in order to get at the Truth–what’s actually real.

Theology is the study of our knowledge of God through Particular Revelation (I.e., Bible) and General Revelation (I.e., the Creation). It’s ultimately taught by God, teaches of God, and leads to God [Thomas Aquinas]. Thus, theology is to be radically God-centered.
When it comes to the aforesaid, we must start with the Canon of Scripture which refers to a group of books acknowledged by the early church as the rule of faith and practice.

Authorities or voices are constantly vying for our allegiance. Everyone listens to “some” authority, (i.e., someone who commands our allegiance to act a certain way for some reason or another). The Bible is calling for our allegiance as well. Most Christians agree that the Bible is our authority in some sense. But in what way does the Bible claim to be our authority? How do we become convinced that the words in the Bible are true and thus binding? It is these types of questions that Primer Chart 3_DOCTRINE OF SCRIPTURE_AUTHORITY deals with and is now available for your edification. Enjoy and consider.
