Read the Bible in a year: Genesis 9-10, Psalm 11-13, Matthew 7
After watching a very sharp friend cross swords with two secular guests on his TV program, my convictions deepened that we must be careful of the amount of time we expend trying to change minds when it comes to moral issues. We may get this world to concede on one or two issues, but there are many others to which they will cling for dear life. They are entrenched in what the Bible calls the "vain philosophy" of this world. This is a deep and dark ditch leading to death, over the sides of which they cannot see until they are lifted up by the grace of God. Our agenda therefore should be to see hearts changed through the power of the gospel. That is the axe which kills the root and sparks new life through the new birth. It is then that a new worldview will follow like the carriages behind a train--there is a new heart and a renewed mind, because the sinner is now a new creature in Christ (see 2 Corinthians 5:17).

"Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom." ― Charles H. Spurgeon
