Do You Trust In 'Science Falsely So Called'?
"And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32 The religious leaders Jesus was speaking to didn't get it - because they were thinking from a worldly perspective. vs 33: "They answered him, 'We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can you say, ‘You will be made free?'” They had no idea what he was talking about. Jesus was not speaking of being in bondage to anyone, but of being in bondage to ANYTHING. "The truth shall make you free" ...what does that mean? We are born into a fallen world, to fallen parents, into a fallen human nature. We grow up this way. From our youth our minds are flooded with what the world says. Daily we hear the philosophies of the world. Do you watch tv? Do you listen to "experts" who speak what they think they know - but are SO mistaken? They are not ABLE to know the truth, because truth is discerned in the spirit. "But the NATURAL MAN does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor CAN he know them, because they are SPIRITUALLY DISCERNED." 1 Corinthians 2:14 "For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God." 1 Corinthians 3:19 If the wisdom of the experts is foolishness with God ...why do you put your trust in them? God is telling you in advance that they are WRONG. One astonishing fact is that almost all the "fathers" of psychiatry and psychology were involved in the occult? So your counselor went to college and what he studied was the teaching of occultists. Sigmund Freud, considered the father of modern psychology, was an atheist. At the end he was in pain from a tumor and he committed suicide. Carl Jung was an occultist with "psychic abilities." These and many, many others formed the foundation of modern psychology which your counselor studied in order to become a counselor. God calls it foolishness. "O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of SCIENCE FALSELY SO CALLED..." 1 Timothy 6:19 The media. Have you ever questioned what the media put out? Are you not aware that the media are controlled by "the world?" Do you just believe what you read or watch, without the critical eye of one who knows that the "experts" are under the control of "the world?" In other words - their wisdom is foolishness according to the word of God. So you're listening to someone steeped in foolishness. They SOUND good -- all "experts" do. Have you noticed that people who go to counselors never stop going to counselors - because their problem never gets solved - nor CAN it be solved by counselors who are peddling "science falsely so called." On the other hand, Jesus said that if you know THE TRUTH - you will be set free. The truth, and ONLY the truth, can set a person free. So ...HOW does one come to know the truth? The God who created mankind did not leave him saying, "good luck, I hope you make it" and walk off. No, God who created us gave us his "manufacturer's handbook," the Word of God, the Bible. In that book is the answer to all the ills of mankind. It explains your condition, and provides the answers. It tells you that you were born into a fallen human nature, and that's why you must be born again, for ONLY THEN can you see and understand. Get it. Read it. It will change your whole life. The truth WILL set you free. More: Born Again - what does that mean, really?
