WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?
Men who are wise (in their own eyes) often feel too smart to believe in God. Even some, so called, Bible believers think themselves too wise to believe the entire Bible and must explain away things they feel are unbelievable. Things like: the creation, hell and the devil, Christ's resurrection, the flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, etc. (A Bible believer with no belief in the Bible? Hmm.) What does the Bible say? Romans 1:21-22 "Because although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools." 1 Corinthians 1:20, 21, 25 "Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made the foolish the wisdom of this world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe, (25) Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men." Colossians 2:8 "Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ." Always remember to look at what the Bible actually says, for yourself, not what others "think" it does or does not say. Truth fears no examination!
