Ah Know, Molly

“18Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you thinks that he is wise in this age, he must become foolish, so that he may become wise. 19For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it is written, “He is the one who catches the wise in their craftiness”; 20and again, “The Lord knows the reasonings of the wise, that they are useless.” 21So then let no one boast in men.”
1 Cor 3:18-21a

This subject has been covered so often, that it is nearly impossible to come up with any original thoughts.
So these will be quick.

Anything you know, anything you are sure of as a certainty, if it conflicts with the word of God, is foolish, dangerous fancy. Anything.
If you think that homosexuality is just fine with God, for example, and you are fine with the recent ‘legitimatizing’ of Gay marriage in California…your belief is in conflict with what God has stated in His Word. How do you deal with that?
Dismiss it? Ignore it? Pretend that I and other Christians who strive to live by God’s Word are hideously mistaken?
There are many well known passages in Scripture which give authority to the belief that an unborn fetus, no matter the legality set by man, is considered a child, a person by God. If that is so, then aborting that unborn is murder. Am I wrong? Does this belief conflict with yours?
Dismiss it? Ignore it?
Here’s the point towards which I have been pointing. The world is full of darkness and ignorance, by design. We’ve been falling since The Fall in Eden.
If your life conflicts with what God has graciously shared with us through His Word…you are wrong. You have to change. You are nearly doomed. “The Lord knows the reasonings of the wise, that they are useless.”
You must become foolish to become wise. Foolish according to the world, wise according to God. Believe on Him and the Salvation He has made available through Jesus Christ. Your friends and family may think that you have lost your mind, but it is better to trust in God than man; it truly is a matter of Life and Death. Choose Life.
