My words are in this color
Bible scripture in this color
and other people's words in this color
God said this next verse to Job,
but He could just as well have asked it ,
of any unsaved person.
“Who is this that obscures my plans
with words without knowledge?
The unsaved frequently rely on
the 'laws of nature',
to sound like an authority,
to sound authoritative,
However, this type of thinking, is a fallacy,
because 'rational' thinking is:
We are to think God's thoughts after God.
God's knowledge is perfect,
But the unbeliever's knowledge and thoughts,
are NOT perfect:
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord.
And God asks Job:
“Where were you
when I laid the earth’s foundation?
Tell me, if you understand.
The unsaved are regularly arbitrary in their thinking.
They might claim there are no absolutes,
( making an absolute statement)
they might say stealing should be okay....
someone steals from them,
you will see that they are not only arbitrary in their thinking,
but they are also inconsistent in their thinking.
So if a 'belief' is arbitrary,
we have no good reason
to trust or believe it,
because it is irrational
21 For although they knew God,
they neither glorified him as God
nor gave thanks to him,
but their thinking became futile
and their foolish hearts were darkened..
Nevertheless, the unsaved ( for the most part),
do not abandon their irrational,
harmful, futile, foolish etc. beliefs.
And strangely there are almost an infinite
number of wrong beliefs,
but only one true right belief.
God cannot be false or wrong, not ever:
if we are faithless,
he remains faithful,
for he cannot disown himself.
2 Timothy 2:13
3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge
God does not change, truth is always true,
things especially spiritual or moral
are not relative.
6 “For I the Lord do not change;
therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed.
8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
Done for Today
