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.

(Pro 1:22 KJV)  How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

We are in a strange time when it comes to “knowledge” (1847).  We have a cup that is running over in what we are learning.  Research in all areas of scholarship appears to be going on full speed.  We hear about knowledge doubling in short periods of time.  There are two problems with this scenario.

The first problem we face today is that we cannot believe the scholars any more.  Maybe we never could but the past always seems so much simpler.  Recently there was a headline where a major science journal, respected and established, had to go back and discard about 500 peer reviewed articles that it had published.  It suddenly realized they involved collusion and fraud.  My impression was that even they admitted it was just the tip of the iceberg.  Add to that the censorship and lies that are going on in the public square and you wonder what knowledge is knowledge and what is just a quote from Big Brother.

The second problem is we tend to reject anything that does not fit into our narrative.

So?  Act like you are walking through unknown terrain after a heavy rain.  Be aware.  Be careful.  That little puddle may conceal a deep hole just waiting for your ankle.  Don’t be a scoffer but be discerning.
