This is Christianity!

Romans 11:33 - O the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!

Christianity is paradoxical through and through. "Claiming to be wise, they became fools..." Paul wrote (Rm 1:22) concerning those ancients who took it upon themselves to sit in judgment on God. Opting to have their own opinion and serve their own interests, they dumped the real God for the false, true wisdom for utter foolishness, moral spirits for rule keeping, faith for self confidence, fear of God for arrogance. Far from God is the man who proclaims he has God figured out. The foolishness of self deception is everywhere - especially to be heard in statements about what God does, thinks, will do and is like.

The man destined for knowing is the one overwhelmed and consumed by his ignorance. The one who will be righteous is the one who cries "Lord have mercy on me, a sinner." The one who surrenders will be more than a conqueror. The one who denies himself will have the self God intended. The one who gives up all he is and has will be the recipient of all that has been and will be. The true believer stands in awed silence before the Almighty - the fool loudly proclaims his (in) competence. Listening in humility trumps speaking out of self-confidence.

Father, in your infinite wisdom destroy every false notion that contaminates our minds. Banish our darkness with your light for without You it is dark indeed. Amen.
