Are we Mistaken, Fooled by our Limited Cognition

 GOD gave and gives us enough knowledge in order to live a righteous life every day

John 1:1 ESV 

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

If you are a Christian and thus accept The Holy Bible as the truth of GOD it should become clear to you that we humans are limited in our abilities. Sure we can acknowledge that some humans have discovered much about existence, are able to pass on knowledge and achieve some marvelous things yet, these achievements are but a small part out of the infinite knowledge and ability of GOD.

We Have to Use our Mind – images from pixabay.com

I for one am humbled by the awareness that GOD grants us just what we need when we need it; I am grateful; I strive to be obedient; I seek GOD’s will for me. I know no matter what I think GOD is the source of  all things.

Proverbs 3:5ESV 

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.

Medical science has expanded and is expanding how the human brain works though it is a daunting challenge.  What seems to be what reality is and what we perceive it to be confounds our common perceptions – even this idea boggles the mind. What can we trust about what we think reality is? If an atom in nature is mostly empty space; the cosmos is enormously vast; our senses limited: then the world as we see it is only what GOD allows us to experience.

In our finite sphere of  existence  we grope along through life hoping for the best

Isaiah 55:8 ESV

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.

We can make mistakes; we can assume erroneously; we can make a wrong choice. Why?  GOD is omniscient we are not; GOD has infinite knowledge we do not; GOD is in control we are not.

So Yes My Understanding is Limited

The Vastness of Space – images from pixabay.com

My understanding is limited by my ability to perceive; my ability to sense; my ability to acquire information. I can reassemble things into what may appear to be something new and call it a creation but, I know that I have not really created anything new when I do that.  What I believe today may change tomorrow in many things but not when it comes to GOD and Jesus Christ.

Ecclesiastes 1:9 ESV

What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.

Tools and Skills – images from pixabay.com

God grants us skill and tools and above all, fellowship with others (especially Christians) to combine our efforts and increase our chances for success.

We are not meant to be alone . . . and when you accept Jesus you never will be . .

Hebrews 13:5 ESV 

Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

TO KNOW ABOUT GOD AND GOD’S WAYS THE BIBLE SHOULD BE STUDIED AS A SINGLE UNIT; UNITED IN CONCEPT AND CONSISTENT WHEN CONTEXT IS UNDERSTOOD.
