Romans 1:22 “Professing to be wise, they became fools.”

Based on what I see and hear every day, the world is a crazy place.  Very few things appear as normal these days.  The government, the economy, and the world community seem to be fueled by some underlying force that has caused chaos.  I have the answer to why this is happening to our world.

The above Bible verse contains the summation of the whole problem. Society no longer rests its hope on God but is now relying on human knowledge and wisdom as the standard for life.  There has been a radical shift in human thinking.  Man is consistently replacing God’s truth with his own.  A large segment of “scholars” are operating under the impression that God’s truth is outdated and should be updated to conform to today’s knowledge and facts;  many of which contradict clearly written Scriptures.

Romans 12:2 warns us about being conformed to the world’s philosophy and admonishes us to have our minds renewed by the word of God.  Even seminaries and Bible schools are calling question on the reliability of the Bible.  For a true Christian there can be no question about the truth of God’s Word and we cannot “update” it to suit modern culture and political correctness.  As it is written, “Let God be true and every man a liar.”

Many of man’s updated Biblical ideas show the effects of the above verse.  Remember, heaven and earth shall pass away but the Word of God shall abide forever.  If God says it, that settles it.  It isn’t enough to know the contents of the Bible.  We must know the truth behind the contents because it is the truth that will set you free.
