Through High-Sounding Nonsense

Today’s title is a quick answer to a question that Dr. Drew posted in his podcast, “How Are The World’s Smartest Being Fooled?” It is hard for some smart people to accept that the simple answer is actually the correct answer. To be simply put, simple is not sophisticated enough.

“See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.”

Colossians 2:8 NIV

“Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ.”

Colossians 2:8 NLT

As evidenced in the fall of man, perfection apart from God is not exempt from the human condition that is prone to fall for deception. According to the mouth of the Fourth industrial revolution’s openly homosexual prophet Yuval Harari, Science is really more about the pursuit of power. Dress up a pitch in high-sounding and novel wording and couple it with impressive credentials and voila! We have a recipe for a worldwide disaster aside from the novel virus, the very concept of evolution. Even the proponents of Human 2.0 have their hand in making the supposedly lengthy evolutionary process happen.

“The law of the LORD is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.

Psalm 19:7 NIV
