Casting down every lofty thing

Posted by Christine Pack
Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? (1 Cor 1:20)
As a former practicing Hindu (now born again Christian) my heart breaks for the poor, deceived people  below. This video is a short news clip of a group of people chanting outside the Wisconsin state capitol in the hope that their efforts might somehow cause a universal shift to take place that would force governor Scott Walker to be recalled. But I've got news for them: "practicing the Om" isn't going to get them good vibes, a governor recall, a universal shift, or peace with a high and Holy God. They need to repent and place their faith in the Savior for the forgiveness of sins.

What you see in this video is the wisdom of man, the same "wisdom" that God makes foolish by his own unapproachable omniscience. Christians, please let your hearts be moved by the deceptions that have captured the people all around us, and be emboldened to share Christ with a lost and dying world. This world desperately needs the light of the gospel, the light which exposes the darkness of lies, and destroys arguments and casts down every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God.
We are casting down arguments and every lofty thing raised against the knowledge of God, and taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. (2 Cor 10:5)
