(Pro 21:16 KJV) The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.
The “way” (1870) is a common translation of the roadmap of the spiritual life. It’s literal meaning is road. It can be figuratively used as “manner”. It is a reminder that salvation is a journey, experienced by a living soul, that requires buy-in. Too many people think salvation is like some of the kiddie rides where a child is put in something that looks like a cartoon vehicle with a phoney steering wheel. A rail on the ground guides the child and keeps them from harm’s way. You can watch them frantically turning the wheel as if it would really change anything. I quit riding them when I went the entire ride without touching it and arrived just as safe as everyone else.
That is not the “way (1870) of understanding (7919a). That is a perversion. God is not satisfied with automatons. He wants saints who take up their cross daily and follow him.
So? If you want a ride that resembles the Christian life then you need to watch the bumper cars. Happy crashing.
