The wisdom of men

And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:  That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.  1 Corinthians 2:4-5

The Bible is God’s inerrant word, and it is on this that we need to rely.  Through the Bible, we come to understand the power of the Spirit, the true power and not to rely on the wisdom of men.

It warns us that we are to follow after Christ, and not philosophies and vain deceits.  God’s wisdom, God’s Word empowers.   Men who fall back on philosophies, upon science so-called such as evolution, are saying the Bible is not enough.   There are many bloggers who consider themselves Christians but follow something called “the red pill”.  See my other post, Christian men and the Red Pill.   Chief among these is a man who calls himself Dalrock.  All these guys think they are something special, that they are “alpha males” who align themselves with a a system based on evolutionary psychology.

While there is nothing wrong with science that supports the Bible, the Bible itself is complete and all we need.  To say that it is not is to call God a liar, to say Christ is not enough, and to fail to use the power that He gives to His people.  Paul said in 1 Corinthians 2:2, “For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.”

In his thread, Why Christians need Game, Dalrock lays this out clearly.  He says that although the Bible is enough, because of the feminization of churches, real men need to fall back on red pill philosophy for something called Game.  He fully supports the Red PIll in other areas, but this post keys in on his fatal error.  Rather than empower himself with the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Paul fought the beasts at Ephesus—was Christ not enough for him?) he falls back on the red pill and at its basis, evolutionary (pseudo-science theory) psychology.

In addition, as I was thinking on the person of Ruth, and her good qualities,  it really came to me how the red pill and people who swallow it such as Dalrock and his ilk, indict every good woman in the Bible.  His best friend, Rollo Tomassi says there are no quality women.  Yet the Bible points to many, Deborah, Miriam, Ruth, Esther, Rebekkah, Sarah, Leah & Rachel, Abigail, Huldah the prophetess.  And that is only in the Old Testament.   Mary, the mother of Jesus.  How can any man who says he loves Jesus say “all women are like that” and read about Mary?   Yet all women are rebellious and need Game to keep them in line.  Any righteous man should be grieved by these things.

I do believe women struggle with the nature of Eve.  I do believe women have to overcome that.  I do not believe that all women are in rebellion.  And any Christian woman should not be.  The answer to feminism IS NOT man’s wisdom.  It’s the power of the Holy Ghost.  It’s the power of Jesus to break all chains of darkness.

We are complete in Him and have everything we need to overcome evil in our world.  In the name of Jesus.

  1. Amen! This was well said. I am totally all about empowered and wise men,empowered and wise in the Holy Spirit. The moment any of us start believing God is inadequate, we need some other philosophy, we’re usually in trouble.

    1. Yes ma’am. The apostles were not very educated men, nor did they rely on their own wisdom. They relied totally on the power of God to withstand those who opposed them, or the evil they confronted.
