The Bible teaches that men’s pride will overcome their reliance on the scriptures. This is evident in so many aspects of our culture: education, courts, government, science, etc. Unfortunately, many of man’s ideas about how the world works have even made their way into our churches despite what the Bible clearly teaches on the issues. The following are several scriptures to encourage my fellow creationists fighting the good fight.
” Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, LET HIM BECOME A FOOL, THAT HE MAY BE WISE. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. ..” (1 Cor. 3:18-19).
” That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.” –The Apostle Paul, in 1 Corinthians. 2:4,5
” Which things also we speak, NOT IN THE WORDS WHICH MAN’S WISDOM TEACHETH, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual” (1 Cor. 2:13).
“In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank Thee, 0 Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that THOU HAST HID THESE THINGS FROM THE WISE AND PRUDENT, AND HAST REVEALED THEM UNTO BABES: Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Thy sight” (Luke 10:21).
Jesus declared in Matthew 15, “This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me …. in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men” (Matthew 15:8-9).
