Living in the midst of so-called wisdom

Submitted by theshovel
Every single day I am confronted by a facade of wisdom that desires to undermine the simplicity of life and truth. Yeah I know, many consider truth either as a relativistic and bogus concept or as a collected database of proven facts. However, it is neither. I won’t try to tell you that I am never swayed by this constant assault. After all, there is a sense of comfort and confidence in having something more substantial to hold onto or of giving into an agreed-upon belief that no one can know anything for sure. I find no confidence in either religious or scientific perceptions, nor do I see any real difference between them. Now I’m not suggesting that I don’t recognize the appearance of difference, but I’m not fooled by the underlying principles upon which all fleshly wisdom is built. For to me, to believe in Christ is not equal to an acceptance of the religion of Christianity, nor is it an avoidance of fact. I know, I stand on what appears to be no-man’s land. Thank God for that! :)

You don’t and there alone! But I’ll grant you that it often seems that way. GBU

Random Shovelquote: Realize the freedom (view all shovelquotes)

How can you realize the freedom you have in Christ? I say that you will discover it, more times than not, in the midst of the bondage that still seems to hold you down. You see, the power of the gospel is not found merely in the words of its testimony of Jesus’ death and resurrection, it is found in the reality that has been brought about because of who he is and what he has done. That reality is that Christ is in you. He is there, and his life witnesses from within you … despite all the doubts that you think actually come from within you. source
