Discernment

Okay, here is what bothers me.

Are we just a group of people who will beleive everything? The craziest ideas, and we’ll embrace them?

Because that’s what it seems like, when too many people lack discernment and then are vocal about the lies they’ve fallen for.
Already G’d is a pretty crazy idea. I mean, He asks us to not be like the world, to follow His ways, which are pretty different from everyone else around us.
And then He asks us to share?

But what weakens that more than blind adherence to every theory that someone with a degree or someone with a book or someone with an internet connection puts
forward? If we believe without
discernment, how can anyone believe that G’d Himself is real?

If we just embrace anything that someone has put forward a scientific-sounding, or linguistic-sounding explanation, what good
is that? We fail to understand the real world and fall into the trap lined with technobabble!

What happened to testing things?

But that’s not the only danger to this. I really do think it’s a tactic the adversary uses to distract believers. Here’s a great quote I found that says it well:
“And while conspiratists project fantastic evils onto the Rockefellers or the Catholics or the US Congress or the Jews or
whomever, real enemies who are hell-bent on destroying us go unnoticed.”

Our focus is diverted from the real truth, turned to some secret plans or some false linguistics.

The fruits of this is fear, strife, confusion. Is that, then, what we choose to follow?????

Isaiah 8:12-13
“Do not call conspiracy all that this people calls conspiracy, and do not fear what they fear, nor be in dread. But the LORD of hosts, him you shall honor as holy. Let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.

One thought on “Discernment

  1. Perhaps this is a stretch, but if one who cannot handle earthly mammon (material things) is not trustworthy in the area of heavenly riches, how can persons who spout foolishness and idiocy be considered to have anything to offer in the area of spiritual truth?
