Professing Themselves To Be Wise, They Became Fools

Washington DC: United States Supreme Court

Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets: She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,

How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit upto you, I will make known my words unto you.

But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh, When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord. They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.  (Proverbs 1:20-32)

The Supreme Court has nothing to do with wisdom. They departed from Wisdom fifty years ago. They have destroyed the influence that God and the Bible have had on our culture. They have tried to change us from a Christian nation to a secular one. They have tried to separate America from the One True and Living God, and replace him with the god of the Secularists—an all-powerful Government, that is all things to all people.

When they kicked God out of the public school system, that was the beginning of the end of our culture. In 1962, they banned prayer in public schools. In June of 1963, they prohibited Bible reading in the classroom. Before the year had ended, the President of the United States was brutally murdered.

When our government rejected God, he withdrew his protection from it. Since that time, the United States has spiraled in moral decline. There is no morality apart from the Bible, just as there is no wisdom apart from God.

The only wisdom available to our government officials is natural human wisdom. Whenever I hear the phrase, “wise Latina judge,” I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. Judge Sonia Sotomayor is ready to continue in the liberal tradition of legislating from the bench and “making policy.”

The Secularists very cleverly made an end run around the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. The Constitution prohibits Congress from making Secularism the official state church of the United States. But the Supreme Court is free to do whatever it wants.

I wonder how many Americans realize that there is a court that is higher than the Supreme Court? And that God is a Righteous Judge. That he is the most powerful being in the universe. And that every child of God has a right to appeal to him?

God help us!

In Jesus‘ name, Father God, please save the United States of America.

Where Does Wisdom Come From?

King Solomon was the wisest man who ever lived—except for Jesus. He recorded much of his wisdom in the Book of Proverbs, God‘s Book of Wisdom. The Bible explains how Solomon came to be so wise.

In Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee.

. . . I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in . . . Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?

And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing. And God said unto him,

Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast thou asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment;

Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.

And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.  (1 Kings 3:5,7,9-13)

Wisdom comes from God, and there is no true wisdom apart from him. That explains why everything is in such a mess. Our leaders have no wisdom and no understanding.

God is amazingly generous. He offers wisdom to everyone who seeks it.

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.  (James 1:5)

If only they would ask God for wisdom. Some of them don’t believe that God exists, and others don’t know him. All they have is their own so-called wisdom.
