God Needs No Teachers

Isaiah 40:13-14.Who hath directed the Spirit of the Lord, or being his counsellor hath taught Him? With whom took He counsel, and who instructed Him, and taught Him in the path of judgment, and taught Him knowledge, and shewed to Him the way of understanding?”

One of Satan’s favorite tools to discredit God is to bring Him down to the level of man, while at the same time elevating man to a place of deity. It’s not a new tactic. Two of the “modern” efforts in this deception are Transcendentalism and the New Age movement, both of which deny the omniscience of God and the finite abilities of mankind. Both push the idea that man can rise above his humanity and become as God.

The problem with that kind of thinking, of course, is that if it’s true, then we must assume that  God, at some point, was a far lesser deity; that He, Himself, had to conquer his weaknesses in order to become God.

Satan tried it.  It didn’t work out very well for him.

The truth is far more simple than all the theories man has floated down through the centuries. The truth is that God exists in all eternity, past, present, and future.  There was no one to teach Him.  He is the Source of all wisdom, all knowledge, all understanding.

Science reached a new level  for mankind when computers came into existence.  They are rather amazing. It took some very smart people to develop them, and to create languages that could be used to operate them.

But God created the human brains that created the computer “brains,” and God will always be so far above and beyond our meager abilities that we can never catch up with Him.

A computer, after all, knows only what is programmed into it. And without electricity, it will eventually become useless.  God’s power source is His own.

  1. Thanks again for a true to life post. People everywhere seem to be on the train-of-thought- that everyone is their own god. They also seem very arrogant and unaccepting of Christ and the spiritual fruit. I for one will continue to show kindness to others, which I believe the world needs much more of these days.
