Christian knowledge

To the world God’s word is foolishness; to God’s people the worlds knowledge is elementary. Isaiah 55:8-9 states: "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." This scripture firmly entrenches in my heart that the LORD God in his Word declares all things knowable to the Christian. If one is ministering in El Salvador one can’t expect not to learn the native tongue. As challenging as it is to learn a new language, it is the job of the minister not the subject. Those who don’t know Christ don’t know what they don’t know. Christ is the redeemer and savior of souls. He is so far beyond our ways that by ignoring the rabbit holes the enemy lies people into following, we only hurt the mission Christ gave us. The charge from our Lord and scripture was to go out and teach the gentiles not ignore their knowledge and deem it foolish. Nothing is new under the sun as Ecclesiastes scripture points out. Therefore, then Christians, it is our duty to learn the world’s knowledge and show Christ’s infinite wisdom above all others.
