Where has the wisdom of the world gone? Where are the intellectual leaders to solve increasingly complex problems of the world? Where is the moral nobility of times past who can guide us through ethical grey areas? What makes the so-called “expert” being interviewed on camera an expert? Who is it that puffs themselves up enough to claim to be able to define just who is and who is not an “expert” on critical issues?
I’m becoming heartily sick of “experts” claiming their own witness as to their own intelligence and ability to proffer “truthful” and “verifiable” conclusions of any kind. They are dependent soley on “peer reviews.” That simply means if their friends in the same club agree with them then the rest of the world should accept their word also. And it’s happening more often it seems, that their conclusions defy critical analysis and sound reasoning. It seems to be happening more and more that mankind is viewing himself to be “wise” in his own eyes. And far from solving problems and enhancing life for humanity, this is increasingly taking life in the world deeper into a dark hole of fear, despair and chaos.
There is only one Savior. Ignore, reject Him and the world continues it’s downward spiral. All man’s self-perceived glory is but fleeting.
“Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has God not made foolish the wisdom of (man)? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know Him, God was pleased through the “foolishness” of what was preached to save those who believe. (Some) demand miraculous signs, (others) look for “wisdom,” but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to (some) and foolishness to (others), but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Gentiles, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the “foolishness” of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the “weakness” of God is stronger than man’s strength.
Child of God, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things – and the things that are not – to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before Him. It is because of HIM that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God – that is, our righteousness, holiness, and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: “Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.” I Corinthians 1:20-31
