Knowing

“Knowing the bible is one thing, knowing the author is another.”image

This doesn’t compute to the non-believing, or those who can’t perceive beyond a strictly non-supernatural realm. The bible tells us that all scripture is God-breathed, or inspired by the Holy Spirit; thus the author of scripture is not limited to whom held the pen — this is a holy scrawl emanating from a deeper Source.

One can study scripture as he would a textbook and still be distances away from grasping knowledge of the One who is ultimately responsible for and behind the words on printed page. Humility sees that men are arrogant and blind due to the pride of this life and its promise of worldly knowledge. The knowledge the world celebrates flatters the ego and is limited to a very temporary realm; this knowledge misses the author of scripture and what He is all about.

God’s wisdom is foolishness to the world.

1 Corinthians 1:20
Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?


Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God,…. The wisdom of the Jewish, or Gentile world. It is had in no account with him; it is despised and neglected by him; he makes it foolish, destroys it, and brings it to nothing; he lays it aside as useless, to make men wise unto salvation, and by the foolishness of preaching saves them that believe; he passes by the wise and prudent, and hides the things of the Gospel from them; so, that, with all their learning and wisdom, they can neither apprehend nor comprehend the mysteries of grace, whilst he reveals them unto babes, and chooses the foolish things of this world to spread the knowledge of himself, his Son, his Gospel, and the truths of it, and whom he makes successful, to the confusion of the wise and learned.
