Lacking Knowledge

In 1843, Patent Office Commissioner, Henry Ellsworth stated in a report to Congress, “The advancement of the arts, from year to year, taxes our credulity and seems to presage the arrival of that period when human improvement must end.” His successor was credited with saying, “Everything that can be invented has been invented.” This was wrong, but indicated the arrogance of man then and today. Scripture says, “There is only cursing, lying and murder, stealing and adultery; they break all bounds, and bloodshed follows bloodshed…my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. “Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.” (Hosea 4:2 ,6)

What knowledge was missing – the knowledge of God’s instruction and word. Knowledge is over rated when it is void of the knowledge of God. In our advanced modern times, we think we know so much, but most of it is trifling, gadgets, travelling fast, electronic communications and documents, but we have become ignorant of God’s ways and law. God’s law is immutable and contrary to worldly pride, it is meant for our benefit. Though foolish men mock asserting there is no God and cast off all restraint of evil, inevitably retribution follows. Men try to solve problems with government, programs, plans, money, resources, and force to no avail. For example, racial division in America is getting worse, though laws are profuse, resources are abundant, programs are unending, and every vestige of past bigotry has been condemned. Numerous social, psychological, financial, criminal and physical problems are epidemic though not reported by a corrupt media.

God designed marriage, the family and provided laws for our guidance with respect them. When men set aside or destroy the protections of God’s law, bad things happen; it is a certain result. Any number of the problems faced by modern society can be traced back to ways and means set in place by secular unbelievers who reject the tested, reliable righteous, and loving guidance found in God’s word the Bible. There is no other source of wisdom, knowledge, and help than our Creator God, Almighty. Today, the secular humanists are not doing a good job leading nations, states, and cities, like evil dictators, communist committees, and wicked kings down through history, they will come to a bad end. The Congregation of Believers are praying that God will have mercy and deliver us from evil and spread through us the knowledge of Yeshua, Messiah, the hope of Glory.
