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.

Limits to Logic

(Pro 14:12 KJV) There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Are you sure?  Really?  Are you willing to bet the farm on it?  One of the differences between Greek thought and modern science is that, while both are thought to be logical, only science demands proof by experimentation.  If you don’t have much time or resources then you may only have logic to go by.  Often that would work out just fine but just as often it will lead to disaster.

So?  Be logical but consult the reference material to find out what you never thought of.  Logic says that man would never be able to fly in a machine that is heavier than air.  I am sure that the first few times it was tried the results were not pleasant.  Now you can design an airplane even if you have never been off the ground.  Our reference manual is the Bible.  It needs to be consulted.  It doesn’t matter how good the deal sounds.
