A daily dose of spiritual exercise for men in various stages of their Christian walk

Twice, yesterday, I had co-workers state out loud how silly and unworthy a certain political point of view was on a current issue. What struck me was how vacuous their statements were. They were mocking one set of ideas and declaring their own ideas obviously right with non sequiturs and ad hominem attacks. Their wisdom seemed pretty silly because it wasn’t based on any compelling evidence.

Recently, I’ve heard arguments against the existence of God that seemed just as baseless and silly. The more I study, the more amazed I am at how weak anti-Christian logic and philosophy are. It’s really a style over substance kind of situation.

So, with those things in mind, let us consider this apparent contradiction:

“Therefore once more I will astound these people
with wonder upon wonder;
the wisdom of the wise will perish,
the intelligence of the intelligent will vanish.” Isaiah 29:14

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” Proverbs 9:10

So, does God want us to get wisdom or not? The key here is to understand the wisdom being discussed. The first passage is pointing out that the self-appointed wise and intelligent are usually proclaiming proof and reasoning to challenge God. He will frustrate that precisely because it opposes Him.

The real wisdom that we are to seek is the knowledge of God. This is the wisdom Solomon received. This is real wisdom, not just lessons learned from life and mentors. It’s the wisdom available to us through the study of Scripture and a relationship with God.

So, don’t make arguments or state claims based on your emotions or strongly held, but foundation-less opinions. Plant your flag with wisdom received from God and knowledge based on clear reasoning from His Word and His Creation.

Don’t look goofy like my co-workers did.
