An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Truth and Consequences

(Pro 5:5 KJV) Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.

We are in a passage contrasting wisdom with the adulteress (NASB) or strange woman (KJV).  The difference is in both behavior and information.  What you believe to be true determines how you will act.  The point being made here is that bad behavior based on false information can lead to eternal disaster.

Truth exists.  I would concede that there are many areas where our limitations force us to choose between shades of gray but we make those decisions based on what we believe to be true.  One of the political footballs of the election is something called the Green New Deal.  The facts are amazingly clear.  Current technology and technology of the foreseeable future does not make it possible to produce dependable power with renewable resources.  Can the wind generate electricity?  Obviously yes.  Can you depend on the wind?  Obviously no.  Yet people still want to invest millions in windmills.  Maybe they know something the historic Dutch didn’t but the action is based on false information.

So?  Where your electricity comes from is a matter of debate.  False information in relation to your eternal soul is a bit more serious.
