It's not hard to tell I love a debate! Not so much because of the aspect of someone winning and someone losing, but because so much is learned when we are challenged. It also exposes how much we need to learn, and how little we understand. Nothing fulfills me more than an opportunity to say to a debate opponent, "great point!" That's a time when I've been introduced to new thinking I've not considered, or a fact I've overlooked! You see we as humans are fallible. Case in point....
Who was the smartest man to ever walk the face of the earth? I suggest to you wholeheartedly it was Jesus! Here was an individual who held the secrets to the universe, the keys to creation, and an understanding to everything in existence. How did we reward ourselves for this gift of knowledge? We murdered him. Right now Jesus could be walking here beside us, giving us tidbits of wisdom and unlocking the secrets of the universe, but no man new better. This isn't an isolated incident of mankind shooting himself in the foot. I take you back to the dawn of creation. We were blessed with heaven. No sin, no pain, no disease, and an abundance of everything. We had freedom of choice and a will of our own. How did we treat this utopia? Using our poorest judgement we broke the only rule supplied to us and were evicted from paradise.
When will mankind stop taking it's own advice?
