Ironside: knowledge

Friday, March 15, 2019
    See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.
    —Colossians 2:8 (NIV)
    Scripture nowhere condemns the acquisition of knowledge. It is the wisdom of this world, not its knowledge, that is foolishness with God... The history of philosophy is a story of contradictory, discarded hypotheses... Many of them have failed to avail themselves of that which would unravel every knot and solve every problem, namely, the revelation of God in Christ as given in the Holy Scriptures.
    ... Harry A. Ironside (1876-1951), Philippians and Colossians, [reprint] Kregel Publications, 2007, p. 147-148 (see the book)
    See also Col. 2:8-10; Matt. 16:17; 1 Cor. 1:19-27; Rev. 1:10-11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me confidence in Your wisdom.
