A recent article about Fox News read:
“I mean you have to do that because you have to please the Fox News listeners in order to win the Republican primaries, which means you’re getting, you’re working with people who are ignorant.”
She must be speaking about someone else. I am not ignorant. I am a college graduate; just don’t ask me to do any Math.
Neither are the folks at Fox News. Has she read the bio’s about the women who work at Fox News? Surely not because she would find none are ignorant. In fact they are quite educated, well grounded, and talented. Oh, and BTW many are confessing Christians.
I have been trying to figure out why liberals think Christians/conservatives are ignorant.
Are we lacking in education?
Are we a little slow getting on the elevators?
Do we exhibit ignorance in our behavior?
The man slowly walking on the elevator has a knee problem. See his cane?
A Christian isn’t perfect, so our behavior at times might be considered questionable.
Jesus was the most intelligent human that ever walked; did he go to school? College?
What about his protégé Solomon? He asked God for wisdom.
The definition of ignorance: a lack of learning, knowledge or information.
My thinking is people who don’t really believe in Jesus don’t want to think he was smart. Giving him that much credit would change everything. And Heaven forbid that would happen.
Matthew 13:53-56” When Jesus had finished these parables, he moved on from there. Coming to his hometown, he began teaching the people in their synagogue, and they were amazed. “Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?” they asked. “Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother’s name Mary, and aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? Aren’t all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all these things?”
Maybe it’s me; if Jesus is so intelligent; outwitting the hypocrites, the bigots and imposters why do so many disregard him?
Oh, they don’t want to be disciplined. Wow. People are allergic to themselves?
No wonder our country is full of disdain and loathing.
You can’t give away what you don’t have.
If you find yourself distasteful, I guess everybody else better move out of your way!
Proverbs 9:10” The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”
That second verse is another reason this country/world is full of hostility and enmity.
If you love the Lord, you will desire to know him and his word. In turn you get smart!
There is no substitution for God’s wisdom.
His wisdom wins wars.
His knowledge wins elections.
His understanding opens cold hearts and mean spirited oppressors to the love of God.
All I can say is I must like myself a lot more than I thought. God won’t let me out of his classroom! LOL!
I am a professional student!
