WHEN INTELLIGENCE HAS BECOME A CURSE…

God’s gift of intelligence to humans is one of the characteristics that confirms that we are created in His image. It’s an aspect of His character that we too have. Not how He looks, but how He ‘is’.

Genesis 1:27  (NKJV)

27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Yes, some animals are more intelligent than others, but we, people, are His unique creation.

However, the intelligence and ability to reason, think logically and draw conclusions can sometimes be a curse. Animals’ lack of intelligence limits them pretty much to what God created them to do other than when we intervene.

It’s unfortunate when the people that God created say He’s not there, and then immediately take a breath of His air.

There are countless people every day who look at the world and universe around them, or study history and culture and decide for themselves God isn’t real, that the bible is written by man and is not the word of God. They use science to discredit God, when science is merely an attempt to give a physical explanation to a world to the spiritual.

People consider themselves to ‘wake up’ or be ‘woke’. When this happens, intelligence has become a curse rather than something to help us better relate to the God who gave it to us

They consider Christians as dumb, naive, silly, gullible and even foolish. But the fact is many of us are just as educated and have considered the same information that they have and still choose to believe in the Lord God of Israel from Everlasting to Everlasting through His Son and our Savior Yeshua, Christ Jesus. When you think someone is naive when they really aren’t, that makes you naive.

Don’t let your Intelligence quench your faith.

BE BLESSTIFIED!

  1. That was me, with a Mensa IQ and so stupid that I called myself an agnostic, almost atheist.

    When I was in nursing school, my assignment one day was to observe an open heart surgery. The surgeon told me that I could stand on a foot stool at the patient’s head, “So long as you don’t faint!”

    I assured him that I was not a fainter. Then from my perch I watched with amazement as the surgeon cut open the patient’s chest and retracted the ribcage, revealing the beating heart and the lungs breathing in and out, in and out,, like living bellows.

    “How did this evolve all by itself from nothing?” I wondered. And so I began to understand the absurdity of unbelief.

    That’s all the time. The instant assumption by many, if not most of the scoffers, is that the only reason a person is a Christian is that they suffer from either a lack of intelligence or lack of education.

  3. Very intelligent, Christian thinking. 😀 The Bible backs you up in many places-here are a few:
    1) “And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding. ” Job 28:28
    2) “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. ” Proverbs 1:7
    3) “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. ” Romans 1:20-23
    The ‘wiser’ we get against God, the bigger fools we become.
    Hope all is well. God bless. 😀
