A Bohemian Husband Post.
I get real leery of people who don’t ask questions. Mostly because there’s only about 2 kinds of people who don’t:
- People who will believe just about anything under the right circumstances. Usually if you just say it enough, they’ll start to believe it. Or if anyone they admire did it that way, you can bet on it. They have no critical thinking skills usually. They are the reason doors say “push” on them.
- People who don’t ask questions because they’re too busy giving out answers. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in seminary, it’s that I’m scared of any man who writes his own Bible commentary. One step above them are the people who wrote out a “systematic theology”. By the way, “know-it-all’s” are usually just followers with better memories. They’re like the bigger, smarter parrots. The African Gray ones.
The apostle Paul saw God in a blinding glory. He had a vision of heaven once, too–whatever that means. He studied God for half his life, found out he was totally wrong, met God in person, and then spent the rest of his life calling our salvation a “mystery”.
And yet, I meet people who think they have all the answers. And, somehow, I’ve been accused of having a small view of God before by a know-it-all.
Beware of the people who think they have all the answers. They think they have God in the box.
