Two Simple Logical Structures

Below are two simple syllogisms implied by the New Testament. The first is taken from theological concepts spread through its entirety. The second from 1 John 4:8 (NRSV).

IF: The Son of God

AND: The Son of Man (Humankind)

THEREFORE: Since the words, “Son”  can be canceled out,

THEN: Is not God humankind?


“Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love.”

“God IS love”

IF: We substitute IS for EQUALS

THEN: invert the statement and simple algebra is applied,


Then is it a probability that the love we have for each other and for all of humanity may be God?


[The logic should hold, IF the premises are “true.” John 18:38]
