I had a subscription to a monthly Christian newspaper that carried many sermons with each edition. I began to notice that each "by line" had been preached by the Reverend, Dr., Joe Smith; or Dr., James Jones, Phd, D.D.; or otherwise a name accompanied by the alphabet in one form or the other. So, I e-mailed the editor of this newspaper asking if they ever published any sermons by a Pastor? I explained that I nere' did get much "edumacation" but I was able to follow a down to earth Pastor. Needless to say, my e-mail brought a swift rebuttal along with a mild scolding as there really wasn't anything wrong with a man having various degrees along with letting it be known to the world of such accomplishments. George Washington Carver once said, “When I was young, I said to God, 'God, tell me the mystery of the universe.' But God answered, 'That knowledge is for me alone.' So I said, 'God, tell me the mystery of the peanut.' Then God said, 'Well George, that's more nearly your size.' And he told me.” Needless to say Carver was a very humble individual, extremely intelligent and contributed much to a society who at the time had no use for blacks. A very brave man to say the least. Personally, I have no problem with a fine education but I do take exception to any man who stands before a church and begins to either preach, or writes book after book attempting to explain the mysteries that is for the Lord alone. As if they have an insight no other possess and for this, more respect should be forth-coming. Considering 1 Corinthians 1:20, Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? I'm not attempting to be super critical here but whatever happened to that Old Time Gospel Message?
