She's on a journey, she says, away from Christianity.
A few of my readers also read her blog, so I'll respectfully ask them not to post comments specifically about her. She needs our prayers.
This post concerns itself with the bigger issue of seemingly committed Christians falling away from the Lord in varying ways and degrees. Some, like the blogger I've mentioned, no longer self-identify as Christians. Others, however, merge error with truth and insist that their new-found versions of Christianity is more "authentic."
All these people have fallen for the same old tired lie that truth goes beyond Scripture, and that we can attain it by our human reason. Certainly, the Lord blessed us with minds, and He wants us to employ our reasoning abilities as we study His Word in ways that build our faith. The apostle Paul, in fact, evangelized by reasoning from the Scriptures (please click this link for examples). Good, honest thought should always be encouraged as we approach the Bible.
Danger comes, not in thinking in and of itself, but in presuming that our human intellect surpasses God's wisdom. Our opinions seem reasonable, but His truth trumps any theories and suppositions we care to make. The humility of confessing that He is God and we are merely His creations must remain guarded, lest we fancy ourselves to be His equals. As much as it pains our pampered little egos, His thoughts greatly exceed anything our puny minds can conjure up.
6 “Seek the Lord while he may be found;
call upon him while he is near;
7 let the wicked forsake his way,
and the unrighteous man his thoughts;
let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him,
and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts. ~~Isaiah 55:6-9 (ESV)
God the Holy Spirit made His thoughts known to the men who, under His inspiration, gave us Scripture. We do well to actively meditate on Scripture by studying, applying and sharing it. Let's choose that approach instead of judging its validity against the false standard of our own ideas, remembering that, as our Creator, He has the final say.
