Intellect Worship

IntellectWorship

 

It seems that the most faithfully-worshiped idol in Christianity is the human intellect. Intellectuals are held in high esteem. Each Christian seems to want to be regarded as an intellectual at some level. This destroys the simplicity of Christ. Christianity is, after all, about knowing Christ. It’s not about knowing information. It’s not about being religious. It’s about being led and taught by the Holy Spirit and responding in submission. Divine revelation makes the human intellect look very foolish indeed. The human intellect responds by challenging the very existence of Divine revelation. “The heart (mind) is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9

Reason” is a book that is presently in the review phase. When this phase is completed, a release-date will be announced.

Why Are Young People Really Leaving the Church?

Portrait of a happy mature man and woman carrying kids on back

Many have come forward with the solution to keeping young people in the Church. God, through Scripture, says that if you train up the child in the way that he or she should go, that child won’t depart from it when he or she is old. What does it mean to train up the child. God says a lot about this in Scripture. How many parents follow the pattern of Scripture, though?

“Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes. And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates:” Deuteronomy 11:18-20

If you look at God’s pattern for the home, you are to speak to the children constantly about what God is saying to you. This requires that you walk closely with the Holy Spirit leading you constantly into all truth. The kids often get put into Sunday school once a week, but do the parents speak to the child when the child wakes up, all day long, and when the child goes to bed? Parents hope the kids get some kind of experience in Church services in some cases. Maybe, there is some mention of Christ and what He’s doing in the home during the week, but often not. By the time kids are 12 or so, parents would like to approach some subjects, but those subjects are foreign to the home. Often, there isn’t even a daily time of prayer and Bible-reading as a family, so it’s weird to pray or mention God in the home. These things seem strange and boring to the kids who have centered their lives on things other than Christ. It’s an uphill battle at that point, Secularist schools or not. If these things have been discussed openly from an early age, and if it’s not just an intellectual exercise but a constant spiritual (not emotional or intellectual) experience (experiment), and if the kids have learned the power of God and if they have a robust two-way communication with God, there is very little that can come against them. In fact, they are likely to be a force for good in the schools and in the world.

What will young people say if asked this question: “Tell us if you have ever heard your GOD?” Kids may know the theory of God and the theory of Jesus, but we wonder why they don’t make it through the tax-supported onslaught we label as “education.” It’s because they never knew Him. They never developed their spiritual senses. They have never eaten spiritual meat because they never had their spiritual senses exercised by reason of use.

“But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” Hebrews 5:14

There is often great emphasis placed on scientific reasons to believe in God. As a result, the simplicity that is in Christ Jesus is sometimes lost. Some Christians have thought that we must all have a PhD in the sciences in order to come to Christ. That’s just not true.

“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” 2 Corinthians 11:3

The simplicity is in Christ, not in theories or theologies about Christ. You have to know Him to experience this. Note that this Scripture isn’t about a simplistic view of Christ. Christ isn’t simple. Knowing Christ is simple. Theology becomes complex and boring. The Holy Spirit speaks to each of us in simple ways that can be understood. Following Him results in having your senses exercised to discern both good (there’s none good but God) and evil (the natural human intellect is deceitful and desperately wicked to the point where it can’t be figured out).

While there’s nothing wrong with teaching the scientific reasons to believe in God, intellectual exercise isn’t what is needed. Allow the Holy Spirit to speak to your child through the Creation. Teach your children to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit, to hear His leading, and to respond in submission to do His will. This is the simplicity that is in Christ Jesus. He lives within. He flows out through thoughts, prayers, words, and actions. Whatever is not Him living through us is sin. Whenever we fail to hear His Voice and yield to the Spirit, we have slipped or stepped off the Way. That’s what sin is. Jesus is the Way.

Teach your children that there are only two sources of knowledge in the final analysis. One is centered in Christ. The other is centered in Satan. The human mind is deceitful and desperately wicked to the point that we can’t know it. God is working with whoever is willing to overcome this. The process is dying to self and living to Him. Faith, grace, and works are central to this whole issue. God is setting us free from self. God speaks. We acknowledge Him. His faith comes. Faith gives access to grace. Grace thinks His thoughts, speaks His words and does His works through us. That is the definition of righteousness. That is the narrow way Jesus spoke of. It’s very constricted since everything must start with God speaking and faith (imparted certainty) coming. “Whatever is not of faith is sin.” The word, “sin,” is translated from a handful of words. One of those words means “leaving the way” or “missing the target.” Another means, “stepping across.” Another means, “slipping across.” Whatever doesn’t start with God speaking is either stepping off the way or slipping off the way. Righteousness leads to holiness. Holiness is Christ in us, the hope of glory. Righteousness is Christ working through us by the process of grace through faith. This is a moment-by-moment thing. When you are in the presence of the Holy Spirit and alert to His leading, you can do your job better than if you are just leaning on your own understanding.

“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.” Proverbs 3:5-8

God speaks of the double-minded person through the Book of James in the Bible. When we were born again, we found ourselves with two minds. We have a natural mind. We are the mind of Christ. The problem we all have is a problem of the heart, the innermost mind. A part of this has to do with worldview. A worldview is a complete inner representation of reality. Everyone has a worldview. Worldviews are created from what we once thought of as true. Worldviews also tend to be internally contradictory. We generally try to preserve our worldviews and not allow them to be subjected to the scrutiny of others. Jesse Nirenburg, in his book, “Getting Through to People,” wrote about how people become defensive if asked too many questions that expose their inner conflicts and contradictions. Your children need to have their senses exercised by reason of use. They need to look into the mirror of the perfect law of liberty and see the Christ in themselves and see how they fit into the Church as a member in particular. This doesn’t happen automatically. If you, as a parent, are not there to guide and direct them, someone else will certainly step in to lead them. Remember that God speaks through multiple confirmations of His Divine revelation. One of the ways that He speaks to children is through their godly parents who speak by the power and authority of the Holy Spirit. If your children aren’t taught to discern the Body of Christ to see that it is Christ speaking to them, they will think that it’s a matter of wills–the parent against the child.

“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.” Proverbs 3:5-7

We can’t trust our own minds. Teach this to your children. Teach them how to seek the Lord and to know His will. Teach them at a very young age. Show them by example. We can try to trust our own minds plus God’s Mind, but that’s being double-minded. Another option is to trust in the Lord with all our hearts and not lean on our own understandings. It’s a choice. Even when we do this, we’re still plagued with the natural mind that wants its way and doesn’t want to die out. The process of dying to self and living to Christ is one of maturity. Each obedience, each time we trust the Lord rather than our own mind, is a step toward spiritual maturity. The reverse is also true, however. We can actually go toward spiritual immaturity. The light in us can become darkness.

The human mind has a limitation in knowing the difference between reality and make-believe. Thought would need to start from an absolute standard, but there is no absolute Secular standard, so Naturalists must base thought on assumption. We live in a Naturalistic world. Even much of the Church is convinced of the philosophy of Naturalism where there can be no absolute standard and all thought must be based on assumption. A chain of thought is as strong as its weakest link, so assumptions are hidden beneath many smokescreens. There’s only one solution for this. Get close to Jesus Christ. Allow the Holy Spirit to lead you into all truth. Be humble enough to hold your opinions and theologies loosely enough so that the Holy Spirit can do His work. Teach your children to do the same. Teach them humility and respect for God.

The human mind is corrupted since the fall of Adam and Eve through listening to Satan rather than God. There’s a spiritual principle: “Whoever you yield yourself to obey, that’s whose servant you are.” This slavery has been passed from generation to generation. Christ came to set us free, and He’s done the work. We just have to accept the work He’s done. That means dying to self, to this inner slave that each of us have. It’s a transfiguration process by the renewing of the mind. The Holy Spirit does the renewing. There’s much more to this. You can read about it at http://www.SeekFind.net.

God speaks through Scripture and through every means mentioned in Scripture. He speaks through His creation. He speaks through Christians who are giving Him the glory.

“…or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you.” Job 12:8.

God speaks through Scripture, prophecy, a word of wisdom, a word of knowledge, dreams, visions, a still small voice, godly counsel, and His peace that He imparts when you are in His will. He speaks by opening and closing doors. He speaks to the saved and the unsaved. In fact, through Creation, God tells every Secularist everything that can be known about the Godhead. In Christ is hidden all knowledge, and God imparts knowledge even to those who refuse to acknowledge that the knowledge came from Him. That’s how Secularists can know that natural laws are dependable. However, in their worldviews, they must attribute this knowledge to assumption, so, to them, it’s assumption, not knowledge. It’s an opinion based on nothing–they think. Yet, they wouldn’t say that. They would say that they know. They can’t explain how they know, but they say that they know. If your child has not been taught the difference between assumption and Divine revelation, how will he or she be able to discern reality when confronted by a Secularist. Without Divine revelation, every thought is based on assumption. Assumptions turn into stories. Stories seem real and become worldviews. Worldviews seem like reality, though they are vapor. The child can’t tell the difference between reality and make-believe. Your task as a parent is to make sure that this doesn’t happen. The way to keep this from happening is as follows:

“Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes. And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates:” Deuteronomy 11:18-20

God is speaking to you. The Holy Spirit is leading you. Listen. Pray for a submissive heart. Teach your children to do the same.

God Speaks Many Ways

GodSpeaks

Rationalism is make-believe. The human mind can’t really self-generate knowledge without the benefit of observation or Divine revelation. There’s a difference between reality and make-believe. Rationalizing blurs the difference.

When looking at things in the present, there are two ways to try to know how they got the way that they are. One is rationalism. The other is Divine revelation. Rationalism can go anywhere. Divine revelation is restricted to what God is saying. Faith (certainty of belief) comes by hearing and hearing by the rhema of God. “Rhema” is a Greek word that means “utterance.” God speaks through Scripture and through every means mentioned in Scripture. Our part is to acknowledge Him. When He speaks, certainty comes regarding whatever He said. As soon as we add anything to what God said or take anything from what God said, we are rationalizing, and our thoughts are based on vapor.

False Objectivity

Christians and unbelievers alike often are deceived into thinking that they can be objective. It’s known as the ontic fallacy. Often, Christians state theological views and declare them to be Scripture. Often, scientists state theological or philosophical views and declare them to be scientific observations or evidence. They are not. They are interpretations. Interpretations add information to what can be known. God speaks through Scripture and through His Creation. Assumptions always add to His Words. Human interpretations always add to His Words.
 
Anyone who’s concerned about reality should realize that nothing can be known if it’s dependent on even a single assumption. In fact, if you allow yourself even one assumption, you can prove anything to yourself.
 
Knowledge of reality requires a true premise. Without Divine revelation, how can you know that a premise is true? With another premise? How can you know that premise is true? It isn’t rational to keep making up premises that need other premises that remain unknown. Yet, that’s what people do. Then, they claim that they’ve proved something or done science.
 
Knowing reality requires a true premise, but you can’t possibly have a true premise without Divine revelation. Now, the skeptic will claim to have infinite knowledge by making the bare assertion that Divine revelation isn’t known either. By doing this, the skeptic is claiming to know the inner spiritual experience of every person who has ever lived. That’s an amazing claim.
 
Every person who follows Christ is led and taught by Christ. While we are still learning to discern His Voice from all the other voices in the world, including the voice of the self, we are making progress in those things where we respond in submission to the Holy Spirit. Without this, there would be no hope of ever knowing the difference between reality and make-believe. A rational person wants to know the difference between reality and make-believe. A rational person realizes that assumptions can never be a basis for knowing.

Illusion through Name-Calling

One of Satan’s tricks is to label the person as the sin. This is called “nominalization.” When you call a person “a homosexual,” it seems as if the action were what the person is. It gives the illusion that the person is the sin. This is very tricky. It’s the reason that Satan moves his followers to call names, since naming people makes the attacks harder to shake off. If I say, “What you just said is irrational because you have no way to show that your premise is true,” I haven’t attached “what you just said” to your person. What happens if I instead say, “You’re stupid for saying what you just said.” Now I have labeled you. I have attached an action to your person. The object is to make it harder for you the feeling that you are stupid and to project an illusory image into the minds of anyone listening. This is a tactic in many debates. That’s what happens when we talk about “homosexuals,” “gay people,” or any of the other labels. It’s a subtle trick of the enemy. The purpose is to cause the person to identify with the sin and to create the illusion that the person “can’t help it if they are what they are.” They are not the sin. They are doing the sin. Everyone has a sinful nature called “flesh,” but no one has to identify with the sinful nature or yield the members of their body to the sinful nature. “Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.” Romans 6:13

Ever Learning

Realize that if what you think you know requires even a single assumption, you don’t know it. It’s a bare assertion.

2 Timothy 3:2-9 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.

The Holy Spirit is sent from the Father and the Son to teach us all Truth. Jesus is Truth.

Science is Knowledge

WeakestLink-Assumption2

The word, “science,” must be defined as “knowledge.” pseudo-science bases pseudo-knowledge on assumptions. It claims that “scientific” assumptions are somehow different from ordinary assumptions. However, assumptions are unknown things that are treated as known things. It’s easy to see that unknown things cannot be the basis of knowledge. It’s also easy to see that it’s irrational to claim that unknown things are known things–which is what assumptions do by definition.

Once the Train of Reason has Left the Tracks

WhereTruePremise

In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. Whoever is on the side of truth listens to Me. ~ Jesus

Once the train of reason has left the tracks, it can go anywhere. Consider that logic requires a true premise. Where can a Secularist find a true premise?

Truth is absolute by nature. When Secularists pull out a premise, how do they know the premise is true? They need a premise for the premise. How do they know that the premise for the premise is true? They need a premise for the premise of the premise. This problem has no end for the Secularist. It is infinite regression.

Only Divine revelation solves this problem. God speaks truth into our hearts (innermost minds) through Scripture or the various means of Divine revelation mentioned in Scripture. It seems that He generally gives this Divine revelation by several means each confirming the other, the Scripture being among the various means and having the most reliable authority. One of the means is often a brother or sister speaking by the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12).

The human mind does want to get in here to interpret Scripture (in preference to what the Holy Spirit is saying through Scripture) or as an alternative to the Holy Spirit’s leading, but Christ’s sheep know His Voice. We never have an excuse when we are drawn away by our own lust. The Secularists are also without excuse, since God has revealed Himself to them through the things that He has created.

Yet, all Secularists have the same problem. They wander without a known true premise. Sometimes, they have true premises, since God reveals things to them. They think those premises are assumptions, since they refuse to acknowledge God. They think that the Divine revelation you receive from the Holy Spirit is assumption. They think that you believe the Bible is God’s Word without error because you are using circular reasoning. If you tell them that God revealed this to you, they assume that what you call “Divine revelation” is mere assumption. Everything, to them, seems to be assumption, since they are intent on denying God’s existence and they are refusing to acknowledge Him.

The sad state of the Secularist is that God turns them over to their own reprobate mind to think their own self-generated thoughts that have no basis in truth. They can’t have a premise that they can know true. They can have a true premise; they just can’t know that it’s true. It’s not that God stops revealing things to them. If God did that, they would be dead in a week. They would step in front of buses, walk off cliffs, eat poison, or do other things that would end their lives. Secularists know things. They just can’t tell the difference between Divine revelation and assumption. Assumptions consist of made-up stuff. Secularists will insist they their own assumptions are better than that–more reliable. They will “prove” their assumptions with other arguments that are based on assumptions. The Divine revelation they receive is reliable. In Christ is hidden all wisdom and knowledge. God’s rain falls on the just and the unjust alike. However, without the ability to acknowledge Christ, the Secularist loses the ability to know the difference between what the Secularist makes up (assumes) and what God reveals as truth. The Secularist can’t tell the difference between reality and make-believe. For the Secularist, every conclusion comes from made-up stuff. This is the upshot of the Münchausen trilemma.

All fallacies fall into one of two categories. First is made-up stuff. Here’s a partial list: hypostatization, bare assertion, reasoning from a presupposition, ipse dixit, outright lie, bold-faced lie, half-truth, blind authority, and hypothesis contrary to fact. Second is smokescreen. Smokescreens attempt to hide the fact that everything is being made up, that reason has left the tracks, that there’s no true premise. Here’s a partial list of smokescreens: false appeal to authority, red herring, circular reasoning, flawed evidence, coercion, false bravado, infinite regression, message control, fallacies of choice, false comparison fallacies. Of course, there are hundreds of these two types of fallacies. The point is that these two types of fallacies are the only options for Secularists. They have no other options. They’re forced to live in a land of fantasy. And, they project their fantasies on you. If God gives you something as simple as, “God is good,” they project their fantasy on that and claim that you are assuming this to be true.

It’s not just conscious thinking by the Secularist that is a problem. The human mind has several parts. There is the will. There is the conscious reasoning part. There is the part of which we are seldom aware, the heart, innermost mind, conscience, or reins. I don’t know all about this part. I don’t know whether these are all the same thing exactly, but they seem to be at least closely related. And they seem to be the place where the worldview resides. The worldview is a total representation of the entire Universe in each person. Books have been written about the limiting problem of paradigms. Every technological advance has come by someone breaking out of the paradigm. Peer review was brought in to find a way out of the problem of paradigms/worldviews, but peers are limited to those who agree, and the result is even worse than having no peer review. Now, the illusion of reality is made stronger. The confirmation bias is a group effort. Group-think takes over. Strongholds are built in individual minds and in the group consensus. These strongholds contain truth and lie all mixed together so that they are humanly impossible to sort out. Only the Holy Spirit can free us.

Did I mention that we all have worldviews? Each of us has one. Denominations are built around the same sort of confirmation bias that the Secularists use. The only way out is to allow the Holy Spirit to minister truth to us. We must stop resisting the Holy Spirit. When we read Scripture, for instance, our attitude ought to be that of allowing the Holy Spirit to teach us and show us where our understanding is incomplete or in error. When we limit the Holy Spirit to only showing us those things that we already think that we know, we also confirm our bias. When we fail to acknowledge Him, we lose the ability to know the difference between reality and make-believe. He has power to tear down our own strongholds, but the Holy Spirit doesn’t force Himself on anyone–not even on us as Christians.

The Basis of Creationism versus Evolutionism

The anti-Creation side asserts that the following assumptions are necessary for science, even claiming that not accepting these assumptions makes science or engineering impossible to do:A thought chain is as strong as it's weakest link. Add one assumption and you can prove anything.

  • the assumption that assumptions are necessary for scientific conclusions (the conclusions can be based on assumptions).
  • the assumption that we can use assumptions to establish knowledge
  • the assumption that there’s no difference between knowledge established by direct observation and knowledge established by arbitrary assumptions,made-up stories, plus direct observation so long as a majority of scientists accept the assumptions and stories
  • the assumption that anyone who won’t accept the anti-Bible assumptions can’t do science or engineering
  • the assumption that anti-Bible assumptions aren’t arbitrary like all other assumptions but are based on “experience”
  • the assumption that there’s no Creator God enforcing all the natural laws, but rather random chance–Naturalism, and the laws of nature just happen to be the way they are for no particular reason
  • the assumption that God didn’t create but everything just happened
  • the assumption that the big bang happened even though we don’t know how nothing could have caused everything
  • the assumption that God sent no worldwide, catastrophic Flood (the arbitrary assumption of Uniformitarianism as opposed to Catastrophism)
  • the assumption that the big-bang-billions-of-years-molecules-to-man story is science and to question it is unscientific
  • the assumption that all the thousands of other arbitrary assumptions and stories that are needed in order to keep big-bang-billions-of-years-molecules-to-man alive are valid and to be accepted as true without any evidence
  • the assumption that science will eventually find ways to explain how matter could have created itself, how information could be added to cells, how the first self-replicating life could have formed, where the laws of nature came from, and all the other unanswered questions (mysteries) that seem to indicate that the big-bang-billions-of-years-molecules-to-man story is just a lie

The Creation side asserts that the following revelation (which God speaks through the Bible and through personal experience with Jesus Christ) is the necessary for science, since not accepting this revelation results in science based on arbitrary assumptions:

  • the revelation that assumptions are arbitrary and not a valid basis for conclusions
  • the revelation that when we go beyond what can be observed or what God has revealed through Scripture, we ought not to be dogmatic
  • the revelation that God is the source of all the laws of science and the reason that we can know that those laws will be faithfully upheld
  • the revelation that God created the Heavens and the Earth and everything in them in six days
  • the revelation that mankind fell into sin, and having been given dominion over the Earth, brought Creation into the Fall
  • the revelation that the curse of death and sorrow is the natural consequence that followed from the Fall into sin
  • the revelation that God sent the worldwide, catastrophic Genesis Flood as the consequence of sin
  • the revelation that God caused the confusion of languages because of the rebellion of mankind
  • the revelation that mankind was, and is, not able to fulfill righteousness by obeying rules
  • that God came to Earth in the form of Jesus to save us by paying the price of sin and God’s plan to remove sin from anyone who will come to Him
  • the revelation that God will ultimately judge of every person according to His wisdom and holiness
  • the revelation that part of science is logic. If logic is used in a way that creates the illusion of being able to know something when the thing claimed isn’t really known, then logic is useless. It’s a fallacy. It’s a lie.

Why Depend on Assumption?

God tells us to acknowledge Him and not to lead on our own understandings. He tells us not to add to His Words, yet we try to interpret Scripture using assumptions. Why, when we have the Infinite Creator of the Universe dwelling within to lead and guide us moment by moment?
