Last week the ever “progressive” Pope was in the news yet again spouting his so-called wisdom to the world. For a few seconds, his comments surprised me.
“When we read about Creation in Genesis, we run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is not so.” (Pope Francis)
Then I was reminded that this man like countless others, is completely clueless. His wisdom is foolishness. Period.
For seeing that in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom knew not God, it was God’s good pleasure through the foolishness of the preaching to save them that believe. 1 Corinthians 1:21
I don’t claim to know very much about the Catholic church. But, I do know that anyone who does not preach Jesus Christ crucified (Ephesians 2: 8-9) as the gospel of our salvation, is lost and bound for hell.
Think about the millions of people who place their faith in the words of men. They hold all of these degrees and certifications that allegedly proves they are knowledgeable.
But, what do they really know?
Without, Jesus, the Power of God, there is no knowledge.
Pope Francis says God cannot be expected to wave a magic wand to create things. Perhaps this man studied his own version of Genesis. God needs the help of no one. He speaks and it is so. The end.
Brothers and sisters, the world continues to show us that we need to stay grounded in the word of God. We need to take advantage of our divine appointments. Share our wisdom with the world. So you have no formal education? So what. You have something better, no best.
25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
26 For behold your calling, brethren, that not many wise after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
27 but God chose the foolish things of the world, that he might put to shame them that are wise; and God chose the weak things of the world, that he might put to shame the things that are strong;
28 and the base things of the world, and the things that are despised, did God choose, yea and the things that are not, that he might bring to nought the things that are:
29 that no flesh should glory before God.
30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who was made unto us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption:
31 that, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 1:25-31
We know God! He knows us! We have his wisdom! Why not use it?
But first, we must come to together. Preach in unison the gospel of Jesus (1 Corinthians 1:13). I know what you’re thinking. That’s hard if not impossible. Do you know what I say to that?
With God ALL things are possible.
