Who to Listen to?

“See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception,
according to the tradition of men,
according to the elementary principles of the world,
rather than  according to Christ.”
Colossians 2:8

Who are you listening to?  Are you believing the world’s ways or God’s ways?  How can you know God’s ways?  Read His word!  Know what He says!  Know the mind of Christ through fellowship with the Holy Spirit.  We can know what God says and since He created it all, He has the answers, not science, not philosophers, not the wisdom of the age or the culture.  Truth was laid down before the foundation of the world.  Wisdom is the very essence of God.  If you want to know if something is right or wrong, go to the author of morality.  He wrote the moral code for your benefit, for your good. 

Galileo was put under house arrest by the church because he espoused the belief that the earth rotated around the sun rather than the sun rising and setting on a fixed earth.  At one time the idea of a rabbit being a ruminating animal was absurd as told in Scripture.  But now we know that that rodent goes back and chews certain of his pellets.  The word of God is reliable and even though we may not understand all of it (God is infinite; we are not), we can trust it!

Who are you going to listen to?  The Creator or the creature?
