God’s knowledge is boundless. His understanding is not calculable. His wisdom is not tethered on a stick. No time and space can circumvent Him. He is the circumference and the centre of knowledge. He is the antithesis of weakness.
A foolish says in his heart, “there is no God.” For there is no knowledge of God in him. A fool thinks tomorrow belongs to him and he does not realise God can claim his soul overnight.
God understands the yore for He is the Alpha. He knows the eternity for He is Omega. He knows the today for He is, ‘I AM’. He is Omniscient.
However, there is also a certain kind of knowledge that does not come from God. It is the knowledge that swells up. It rejects that God came in flesh. It disputes that God died and rose to save mankind. It denies humankind is fallen and in need of a Savior. It maintains that human beings can differentiate right from wrong without a Moral reference. It claims that humanity is perfect. It says humankind can redeem self. It says that Christ did not die on the Cross but another guy died on his behalf. It teaches that evil and good are subjective and even illusory. This is the kind of knowledge that puffs up.
We are living in the 21st Century. A century of heightened humanism, atheism, Gnosticism and agnosticism. A century with elevated activities of multiple religions and bizarre religious practices. All these seem to point you in the right direction. However, there is only one man in history who said: “I AM THE WAY, TRUTH AND LIFE”. This man is Jesus. To say these powerful words, Jesus must have been either self-important, quite snobbish, deranged, or Lord and Savior. Paul, Peter, John, Stephen and other followers of the 1st Century must have been nuts to jeopardise their lives for a daft, or a man who escaped the cross and instead another man crucified in his behalf. They must have been amok to take stripes and difficult lives for a man who did not resurrect from the dead. They must have been hallucinating all their lives. Josephus and other great secular historians of those days must have been high on something to mention someone in their writings who never existed. They must have been mentally impaired to write about things that never occurred. The stories about Pontius Pilate, Julius Caesar, Augustus Caesar, Herod the Great, Alexander the Great, Hannibal, Leonidas, Socrates, Plato, Nebuchadnezzar, Aristotle, Vasco da Gama, Vikings, etc are just fabrications and people who wrote the accounts of these guys were hallucinating at best and at worst mentally insane. Perhaps they are just myths. So why bother believing them? Jesus is either a lunatic, an arrogant fellow, or Omniscient Lord and Savior. The choice is yours.
