Study the Word

Where Has All the Knowledge Gone?

What is the greatest threat to America? Some might suggest it is natural disasters, terrorists, the economy, drugs or something else, but I submit to you that it is a lack of knowledge and applying that knowledge of God’s Word to our lives. Could God say to America the same thing He said to Israel long ago in Hosea chapter four? I think one of the main problems that those people had is found in verse six and that is a lack of knowledge of God’s Word. We like things easy. We want our religion spoon fed to us by preachers, teachers, creeds, the TV and other things. We must examine the scriptures to see if what is taught or believed is what the Bible says. That is what the Bereans did (Acts 17:11). You cannot get in to heaven saying “That is what the pastor said,” or “That is what the manual said.” God will judge you by what He said so we had better live by the Bible. “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15). Anything worth having (a knowledge of God’s Word) is worth working for (Bible study). Have you studied today?
