Evaluating God with Your Intelligence…
Act 22: 10 And I said, What shall I do, Lord? And the Lord said unto me, Arise, and go into Damascus; and there it shall be told thee of all things which are appointed for thee to do.
I am sure most people know the story of Saul who was renamed Paul.
Saul was an intelligent man, who felt he was doing right and dishing out justice according to the laws of moses by persecuting the Christians and bringing them to “book”, until he met Christ on his way to Damascus. Then he realized that his intelligence and all he thought he knew was actually leading him to self-destruction.
Most intellectuals are like the Saul of old, they believe they know so much to understand what is and what is not. Some believe there is God and that when you live right you are okay, while others believe there is no God, that the world is just one big phenomenon. God help!
What intelligence builds in man include: arrogance, pride, anger, philosophies, not listen to words of reasoning, heart of stone etc all a path to self-destruction. Note, I have not said it is not good to be intelligent but draw a line between intelligence and godliness, what you know and what really exist, the knowledge of man and the knowledge of God.
“Evaluating God with Your Intelligence is a Recipe for Self-Destruction”
My Dєαя Ƒяιєη∂ѕ no man can see God except he is Holy, not just believing He exists but accepting Christ as the Son of God, your Lord and personal savior and surrendering your life to Him in Holiness. No shortcut!
It is once said that the greatest trick the devil pulled was to make people believe he doesn’t exist. People who don’t believe in Christ Jesus, have already opted to believe in the devil…and that is the fact most run away from.
Make a choice today! Your intelligence won’t save you the best your intelligence can get you is self destruction. But if you choose Christ today and live in holiness, you would be saved.
If these words have touch you to give your life to Christ or to rededicate you life to Christ. Kindly visit a bible believing church to do that openly to the shame of the devil.
