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.

Careful about “Gotcha”

(Pro 8:29 KJV)  When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:

I recently came across someone arguing against the claim of the climate change cabal that if we keep driving our cars the level of the oceans will rise and destroy our civilization.  I don’t think I exaggerate that summary much.  The disputer was quoting this verse as a proof text that God would not allow any such thing to happen.  I would like that simple explanation but it does not jive with the rest of the Bible, let alone what we think we know about history.

Remember a guy named Noah?  He seemed to deal with the oceans rising.  I don’t see any inference of automobiles and anthropomorphic climate change but there certainly was a lot of rain.  I also remember reading somewhere that the Mediterranean was 200 feet higher somewhere in the past.  Since that is the opinion of historians and scientists it is very questionable.

Read what it actually says.  God puts limits on the water but there is nothing that says He cannot make occasional adjustments.  I assume this is one of Solomon’s proverbs and I think he was aware of things like tides even if he never heard of tsunamis.  

So?  Be careful what you quote.  Don’t fall into the pattern of the pagans and start throwing out things that just don’t add up.  They lie for a living.  We stand on truth.
