DISCLAIMER: This blog was written for Bible-believing Christians..
This question was recently posed on a forum. Many answered in favor of one or the other or both for various reasons. When i thought about it i realized, as a Christian, i can trust neither. You see, the people of the world are searching for things. Some are searching for knowledge and wisdom and peace and happiness. These are wonderful pursuits. But if one is a True Christian, it means one has definitely found something. The bible calls it "the Pearl of great price"..here is how the Lord Jesus Christ describes it...Let us Hear the Word....
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
When a person gives their heart and life in commitment to Christ, they find something. Something that intuition and science can never give. Of Christ it is said...
But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
How much knowledge does the God of Heaven possess?
Psalm 147: 4,5
He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names. Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.
Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Let those who know not Christ trust their heart....the people of God should trust Him.....completely. The heart can easily be deceived.......hear the Word....
..........behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
emphasis supplied......he deceives the whole world....he deceives those who seek science, intuition, fake christians and all the rest. Only the Remnant cannot be deceived (Rev 12:17) and that is because the remnant ascribe to these .......hear the Word....
And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?
To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of ?
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
Grace and Peace be multiplied.
