Proverbs 4:7 “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.”
Man has convinced himself that knowledge is wisdom. That could be no father from the truth. I only have to give one example, a doctor goes to school for 10 years, spends time as an intern then spends his carrier as an abortionist. All his education is to help cure diseases and mend broken bones and dysfunctional internal organs. No one can go through that type of education and not believe that there is a god and that we are wonderfully and miraculously created. How can a person with that type of ‘education’ not have the wisdom to know that abortion is nothing other than the murder of a defenseless child?
Sometimes wisdom is simple common sense. There is only one definition of wisdom: The God given ability to properly use the knowledge that you have. How often have you listened to a man that has spent his life studying scripture and then he is asked what he believes God has told us about same-sex relationships and they can’t state with certainty God position. He knows scripture backward and forward but does not know the real meaning of that Word.
Too many people, even people in the church, do not believe in absolute truth. They think that truth is situational. They believe that the situation determines the truth at that time. God never indicates that sin isn’t always sin. He never embraces same-sex relationships. He never embraces abortion. Whenever homosexuality is mentioned in scripture it is ALWAYS condemned. God mentions ‘innocent blood’ nineteen times in scripture and most of the references are ‘generic’ as it can be taken in several ways, murder of an innocent person for personal gain but it isn’t conclusive to that. Abortions were done in Biblical times and it can most assuredly be a reference to that. Think about it, what could be more innocent than a defenseless child in the womb?
Today many people in the church demand that abortion be available at any time for any reason. Why? ‘We don’t want to burden a young teenage girl with a child at such a young age.’ This was verbatim from a member of a church I used to attend. I mentioned that the baby was a human being and that didn’t matter to this person. I brought up that we must teach kids that they need to take responsibility for their actions and even that was dismissed. Most black members of our Congress demand abortion are made available to their community ignoring the fact that 62% of black pregnancies end in abortion and 72% of live births are to single parent homes. Where is the wisdom in letting these fathers ignore their responsibility as a father. I understand that these things occur in white, Hispanic and other nationalities communities but the black community has the highest numbers of them all.
These mindsets are prevalent because there is ignorance in the pulpit! Man believes that his science is the answer to everything. His science explains everything and if his science can’t explain it, then it isn’t true specifically concerning creation. Man has adopted evolution even though there is virtually no evidence of it. For it to be ‘proven science’ it has to be able to be witnessed. That has never happened. The so-called missing link, a skeleton found in Africa they named Lucy, ended up being a monkey skeleton and wasn’t even from the same animal. Some of the pieces were found miles apart. This information was not widely reported because it would shame the scientific community. When looking at how a cell in the human body works it is impossible to believe that it just ‘happened’ over a few billion years. Even one of the prominent scientists of today, Dr. Michio Kaku, has stated that it was intelligent design: “After analyzing the behavior of these sub-atomic particles – which can move faster than the speed of light and have the ability to “unstick” space and matter – using technology created in 2005, Kaku concluded that the universe is a “Matrix” governed by laws and principles that could only have been designed by an intelligent being.
“I have concluded that we are in a world made by rules created by an intelligence. Believe me, everything that we call chance today won’t make sense anymore,” Kaku said.” The big problem that we have is the fact that there are ‘rules’ set up by the Creator and man does not want to be held to any rules. All too many refuse to believe the biblical account of creation simply because they can’t figure out in their head how it happened. Reverend Gregory S. Neal commented: “This is not a surprise. Most clergy I know do not accept the literal account of creation. Rather, while we certainly believe in the intelligent design of the universe. We believe that the creation myth tells us more about who we are and who God is and what our relationship with each other and with God should be, than it tells us anything about the literal how of creation.”
Is this what is being taught in today’s seminaries? All this is is some kind of philosophical theology with no biblical basis. It is a sad attempt to explain God’s handy work with our extremely limited knowledge. We are even told that our limited knowledge can’t comprehend the ways of God: Isaiah 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
(9 ) For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. We will never figure out how God created all that He created so to discount the biblical account is simply arrogance, which man has plenty of. Man’s mistake is they are trying to make God’s Word line up to man’s knowledge when what we should be doing is making our thoughts line up to His Word.
There are many denominations that have embraced the homosexual lifestyle believing that that is the way God made that person. Really? God put a woman in a male body with male DNA? I think not. That means God made a mistake and isn’t perfect. All that does is cause confusion and scripture tells us in 1 Corinthians 14:33 “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” So if God isn’t the author of confusion then there is only one other that could be the author, satan.
How hard is it to figure out one’s gender? It has no bearing on how you feel, it has all to do with your DNA and biological gender. New York now has 31 different ‘genders’ that they say must be recognized. There are two, male and female. Genesis 1:27 states “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” There it is. We either accept it or we deny that and try to make up something else. All mankind will suffer if we continue to allow people to ‘identify’ with whatever they feel like identifying with. What about the person that has had dental work done to look like cats teeth and had tattoos of stripes on their face and body, cosmetic surgery to alter the face to look like the face of a cat. Do we refer to that person as a cat and put litter boxes in public restrooms?
Man has done all he can to separate God from His creation and the church has enabled them to do so by denying the Word of God on creation, biblical marriage and a host of other things. The only true wisdom is acknowledging that we are not God and that we depend more on Him than anyone is willing to admit.
All scripture is from the KJV unless otherwise noted.
