One thing is clear from God’s word; when you do not start with Him, your “wisdom” is actually foolishness. All the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are hidden in Christ. The fear of the Lord is the BEGINNING of wisdom. The wicked do not seek him, but all of their thoughts are, “There is no God” (Psalm 10:4). So apart from God, there is absurdity, and one thing is for certain….absurdity always, though often not immediately, breaks down in the presence of truth.
Take our past month for example:
A bakery in Oregon was fined $135,000 for merely exercising their first amendment rights. Its absurdity now leads Wisconson Senator Tammy Baldwin to attempt to redefine the first amendment to stay consistent. A standard is demanded.
-Obama sings Amazing Grace in the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, proclaiming hope in the God he at all other times hates. His absurdity asks him why he simultaneously demands that women have a right to put to death 4,000 African American babies a week at abortion mills. A standard is demanded.
-Planned Parenthood was, on this very day, exposed as an undercover camera caught one of their top doctors discussing the sale of aborted baby body parts. The absurdity now demands Pro-Choice advocates to decide if that is okay given that “life has not began” yet. A standard is demanded.
As we continue to pursue the things God hates and continue to push for what we create to be equality, absurdity surfaces and things begin to fall apart. The only answers that carry any weight are ones that have a standard to back them. Not an opinion. Not a thought for the day. A standard that transcends any opinions, stereotypes, or culture. That standard is God’s word. He created everything and he sustains it. We would do well to filter ALL that we do through it. Why? Because all else ends in absurdity. How so? Take a look at our present national condition, a people that have cast it aside. I’ll allow the current national discord to speak for itself…..
