Did Jesus have a Facebook Page?

Christianity 0ut of the Box



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.”

Who is she calling 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 can help her with this. Go to Google; enter in “Fox News Channel Biographies” and you will find a list of their broadcasters and an in-depth perspective on their accomplishments.

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?

Christians don’t have to be educated to be a Christian.

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?

Proverbs 15:32 “He who ignores discipline despises himself.”

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!

  1. It’s a habitual group trait of liberals (not the more polished spokesmen, but the average rank and file) to just emotionally lash out like that. I wrote about the pattern of liberal rebuttals on Sept 28th in part 4 of Understanding and Overcoming the Headwind Against Conservatism. I invite you to sample it. I’m on a Blackberry so a can’t easily paste a link here.

  2. Harvard is the oldest college in America and was founded as a Christian school. Why? Because for hundreds of years, Christians founded schools of higher learning. So, ho-hum, the season has turned and now Christians are stupid. But no matter what, the Father still calls me son.

  3. That not tru….. I are smart! 🙂 Seriously, it is pretty amazing that people think that we are stupid & ignorant to believe in Jesus. Smartest thing I ever did.

  4. Amen Naphtali! This is a fantastic post! Thanks for enlightening us with your words of wisdom…Many, many blessings to you…Robin

  5. Well, Cathy, consider it good you’re being trained — you’ve been chosen by none other than the almighty God! Impressive!
    God Bless You!

  6. Cathy…. “You can’t give away what you don’t have.” How very true… this is what our country has been doing for a LONG time and it is finally cathcing up with us. It will take a literal miracle of the Lord to get things straightened up and running as they should. May we all be in prayer that He might work that miracle! Lord bless. Thank you for a much needed posting.

    • Thank you Pastor, we have become so accustomed to making silly, unimportant issues important. Realizing with so many myself, who don’t have to give what they are trying to give, marks the evidence in our country. God has shown me people who are trying to give away  love when they don’t know what it is themselves. Once we see this, it takes away any hurt or pain. But we need to learn as a country to love the way God loves us.
