Wise Men and Wise Guys

Real Wise Men are not wise guys.

They know what they know and why they know what they know. They also know what they do not know and how to find out what they want to know. They are always open to truth and opposed to error. They have a teachable spirit!

Wise men know the Lord Jesus Christ

is the way, the truth and the life and no man comes to God the Father except through Him.

A wise man knows he will die and has made peace with God

through the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Are you a wise man or a fool?

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Psalm 53:1a. Become a wise man today, repent of your sin and trust the Lord Jesus Christ and serve Him with love and all your heart all the rest of your days! Never allow anyone or anything to come between you and Him!

Different kinds of Wise Men and Wise Guys.

All Wise Men are not as wise as they could be if fully surrendered to the Lord Jesus Christ. There are lazy wise men and they may not be much wiser than the wisest wise guys! Any man who lets anyone or anything come between him and the Lord Jesus Christ will be ashamed when he stands before the Judge of all the earth. Men will let religion come between themselves and Him. The most dangerous man to come between the Lord Jesus Christ and you is yourself! We too often want to do His work our way! Teach what we want to teach, not what He teaches! Go where we want, not where He sends! The Lord Jesus Christ must be the Lord of all we believe and do!

Bible IQ Test: Wise Guys also differ in their willful ignorance

They will listen only to those they agree with. When you disagree with them they want to debate, not to learn anything from you, they just want to win the debate. If they can't win they will argue endlessly and when you refuse to debate anymore they will cast you out of their circle of friends, boot you off their websites, or email lists. There are also degrees of willful ignorance and the brightest wise guys are hard to tell apart from the weakest wise men! Another trait some wise men have and all wise guys have is to infer you are twisting their words when you ask an honest question!

How to tell them apart.

The Bible says: Proverbs 9:8 Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.

Why settle for a religion when you can have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ?
