So as I’m going through my social media sites, I keep coming across people that seem very arrogant. They think that they know everything and can’t take any constructive criticism. Have you ever been confronted with someone like that? Well you probably have and the Bible talks about it.
“Claiming to be wise, they became fools”
Romans 1:22Hcsb Bible
So before this verse, Paul talks about how after denying Gods glory in his creation, that their mind starts to become senseless. They don’t think with logic or their heart takes over. This is what happens when people go away from God.
After they deny God, they believe they are enlightened and are above those “religious knuckledraggers” as they call us. This especially happens after someone from a semi religious home/community decides to go to a very liberal college and then ‘become’ atheist after listening to their professors. Afterwards, they look down at the people from their hometown and think they are stupid.
The problem here is that obviously they’re wrong. I’ve been to college and have my bachelors in psychology/counseling and if there is very many Christians conservatives in that field, I haven’t found too many. I was in constant discussions with my left leaning and atheistic professors.
With a lot of people, they go to college and take the professor at their word and believe everything they say and are then brainwashed. I’m glad that even though my biological father is an atheist, he drilled into my head to think for myself. I examine everything I believe, I dive for the truth. A lot of parents haven’t done that with their children.
So then they become foolish and believe the lies that God doesn’t exist and then live a life of sin which then brings more chaos, confusion and pain than if they would just examine the scriptures and find the truth by living it out. They also become fools by not listening to reason but rather letting emotional arguments take over the truth in their eyes and they then make bad decisions.
So at the end of the day, examine the scriptures and accept the truth of Jesus Christ. Don’t be brainwashed by anyone you hear just because they may have a fancy title or several degrees.
One important reason is that those degrees could be in worthless ones, or they could have passed barely. Remember you can get a degree and still have no idea of what you’re talking about since they’re a good test taker. I know because I saw the people I graduated with.
The truth of Jesus Christ humbles us whereas the rejection of Jesus makes us arrogant. So dive for the truth in Jesus Christ.
If anyone has any questions or disagreements, comment below and I’ll respond when I can. I hope you have a great day.
