Impaired Minds

Friday, Oct. 17
“There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.” Prov. 14:12. Because of sin, men have turned truth into falsehood. Sometimes it’s blatant—knowing the truth and choosing to ignore it because it’s onerous. Sometimes it’s ignorance—not being aware that it’s sin. But sometimes it’s the result of faulty thinking. Sin has brought disease to the body, but it also has brought disease to the thinking process and the emotions. History is replete with men who thought they had it all figured out. People today are no different. They think they can deal with life by rational thought and by how they feel. I could give you many illustrations of this, but will limit it to a couple. People feel that gay relationships are OK. Some even convince themselves that the Bible not only doesn’t condemn it, but supports it. Another example is the idea that God is a God of love and could not or would not condemn anyone to hell. The Bible clarifies these issues and is our absolute authority. By the way, the New Testament declares the same truth as found in Proverbs. “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.” Col. 2:8. A lot of things might seem right, but if not based on the revealed Word of God, they don’t just lead you astray, they lead to disaster.
