This is not athread against education or knowledge, get all you can, but the more I read what is said on here, the more I see how complicated "educated" men have made the simplicity of the gospel. I believe knowledge has become more detrimental to bringing people to Christ than helpful. "Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth." I believe also, that like the learned men in John 9 who cast out the blind man, we have obstructed the way of those weak in the faith and seeking Christ, by our conditions and judgements we pass on each other and scripture. And for my Calvinist friends, I also believe, "Whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved." Thank God for Jesus and His willingness to correct our blunders like those made of the educated religious men of His day. John 9:35 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? :36 He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him? :37 And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee. :38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him. :39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind. :40 And [some] of the Pharisees which were with him heard these words, and said unto him, Are we blind also? :41 Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth. Let's pray God gives us more grace and charity, along with a whole lot more humility.
