The Beginning of Wisdom is.....

CONSCIOUS IGNORANCE.  This means; you are aware of your ignorance.  You are comfortable saying: "I don't know and whoa do I have a lot to learn".

Jesus is quoated by the writer Matthew in chapter 7 and verse 25: "And on that day (Judgement) I will say to them, Depart from me ye who practice lawlessness for I never knew you".   I truly belive that this is an important line to your "Salvation".  That Jesus knows you. (And I don't mean in a negative acknowledgement).  We (Christians)talk about our "Walk with Christ".  Even more accurate, we claim to cultivate a: "Relationship with Christ".

Recently, I've been some what offended by those who pretend to KNOW who God is and what He should be doing, thinking or saying.  I think I've studied the scriptures to a point that it has become academia when there is NO WAY it ever possibly be. 


Christian Mingle Commercial: "Sometimes we're waiting for god (small case since I don't think they have a clue as to the great almighty)to make the first move when god is telling us to make a move.  When a human is telling you what god is saying; RUN.

Ancient Astronaut program: George Tsukolos tries to make a case for "The gods" vs. "his God" case in point, the discussion of flying vehicles. George says: "My God, big G, would not need a flying craft to get from one place to another".  But those whom the ancients percieved as gods would".  Although I tend to agree with George; why would George know? 

On another History Channel show, a black preacher with dreadlocks is asking: Why would a "Loving" god allow such harm to happen?  The answer is because we have free will and it comes with a price.  But my question is, how does this preacher define a loving god?  Perhaps being taken from this incarnate life is doing us a favor and in its' self and act of love. We don't know about the after life.

Again, the beginning of wisdom is conscious ignorance.  When you know that there is much that you don't know.  As humans we need to be able to understand things with the exception of government spending and electricity.

Perhaps one of my favorite line from the Bible comes from the Book of Job when a young Elihu explains to Job (Who has lost almost everything)Job 37:5 :

“God thunders with His voice wondrously,
Doing great things which we cannot comprehend".

This explains the verse: "God loves the humble and admonishes the haughty".
Don't pretend to understand God.  Just know that He exist like the air you breath, the water you drink and the fire that keeps you warm.

And above all; remember, The Bible is the "Inspired" word of God. Not the "dictated" word of God. Remember that there were books that were left out of the Bible.  Remember the Bible was published by the Roman Emperor Constantine.

Just remember it.
