To The Daily Sun,
In a recent letter James Veverka tells us that he is well versed in the Bible. Though Jim it seems has read some of the Bible, and has a good intellect. His problem here as well as in almost everything he writes is he lacks understanding. This lack of understanding, I observe is an epidemic among liberal intellectuals. They often, it seems have lots of knowledge but have little idea of what it all means. It's sad.
I will take a moment to speak to teachers and college profs. It seems that these we pay so that they will have the time to study and then to teach our future generations what they have learned. When most of these lack understanding, well, we can see the results in our society today. These teachers will have to answer to God in the judgement as to why they led a generation astray, unless they repent, for have not they been given time to seek out the truth? I say this not to condemn teachers but that they would come to Jesus and be saved. The scriptures says "Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom." Unless you start there my friend you won't have understanding; just a bunch of "knowledge" some of it true some of it not and no anchor that makes it all come together in real wisdom and understanding.
Jim's letter got me going here, but I'd like to leave the specifics of that, and talk about how we view history. Almost every liberal historian that I have listened to teaches not just history but serves it up with an unhealthy portion of a philosophy of history. Viewing the historical details they reveal through this philosophy renders them useless in forming any useful understanding which can lead to benefiting from the knowledge handed down from past generations, understanding where we are in history and deciphering the signs of the time. It is meant only to affirm their political philosophy and obscure the real lessons of history.
I will, Lord willing explore these things in more depth in future submissions.
