Theologians and Bible Scholars Sometimes Use Rationalized Speculations

Theologians are guilty as charged in many, many cases. They go beyond what the Bible actually says and seem to do so without any regard for the sin they are committing. Liberal theologians make the mistake of thinking that the Bible has no more authority than their own carnal minds. Here is a little science on the problem of the human mind. God can take a Scripture and reveal its meaning. That's what happened to Martin Luther when God said to him, "By grace are you saved, by faith." That was a revelation, not a speculation. But many theologians are involved in the sin of either rationalized or spiritualized speculation.

Rationalized and spiritualized speculation causes divisions. The denominations are the proof of the carnality. The denominations and infighting show that not everyone is being led by the Spirit of God. When we all turn to God rather than following pet theories or following organizations, we will come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God that is prophesied.

Rom 8:7 because the carnal mind is enmity against God, for it is not subject to the Law of God, neither indeed can it be.

Detailed Answer

Some may think that the problem of speculatively rational-lies-ed theories is limited to science, but it covers every walk of life. It has particularly plagued the theologians who are constantly fighting among themselves over speculatively rational-lies-ed doctrine. Liberal theologians tend to knowingly use rational-lie-zed speculation, while conservative theologians tend to be unaware that they are rationalizing speculations. Conservatives think they are just using the Bible as it is written, but the natural human mind is very deceptive. If the Holy Spirit is revealing, then there will be unity among all who are really seeking God. For those who are depending on human intelligence, there will always be error with just enough truth to seem convincing.


Theologians and scholars all arguing about,
Some verses in the Bible they think they figured out.
Where is the wise man, where is the sage,
Where's the debater of this age.
They're all quite offended and amazed,
That God has rejected all their man-made ways.

Remember what the saints of old have said,
"There are certain limits to the brain inside your head.
If we know some doctrine, _ we know it just in part.
Our own understanding puts the horse behind the cart.

The mind of man cannot figure out,
What the word of God is all about.
He prefers to believe what he prefers to be true.
His imagination will dream up something new,
Or else his old traditions make it difficult to move.
Interpreting the Scripture is a thing he cannot do.

Paul had to tell them he was set to be
One of the apostolic ministries.
As such he taught the doctrine as ordained,
And if they were all hearers and doers they would gain.

If you yield to the Spirit, God will show you the truth.
The natural mind is enmity, but God will pull you through.
See the foundation set in it's place.
Come in submission to His grace.
The proud and their opinions, God will abase.
But he will not reject any who truly seek His face.

David and his men built a new cart.
They had this great idea for carrying the ark.
God doesn't need ideas as He showed us on that day.
He gave us fair warning that he needs us to obey.

They all believe the Bible, at least they say they do.
But there are just some verses they can't believe are true.
Perhaps they are outdated so that they don't apply.
Or else they're unimportant and easy to deny.
With great intelligence, they keep explaining why.
But every time they move their mouth, you hear another lie.

Jeremiah said, "Be careful what you do."
If you say, "The Lord said," something, just make sure it's true.
The Lord won't tell me one thing and another thing to you.
If His Spirit leads us, He will end the Hullabaloo.

Those who never were sent by God, yet on their own they ran,
They don't want to wait on God, so they form their own plan.
They think they need no healer, so they can't be healed.
From these the things of God are all concealed,
Whose great and prideful mind could never yield,
But to the meek obedient heart, God's will is revealed.

Miriam wouldn't honor and obey!
She said, "Couldn't anybody else but Moses lead the way?"
God told her it was He, set Moses in that place.
To some He spoke through visions but to Moses, face to face

Theologians and scholars all arguing about,
Some verses in the Bible they think they figured out.
Where is the wise man, where is the sage,
Where's the debater of this age.
They're all quite offended and amazed,
That God has rejected all their manmade ways.

Ungodly people hold onto some basic assumptions.� They are filters and a way to censor out any information that supports the existence of God.� They set up a web of rules to filter out God.� They will only accept those things that conform to Naturalism, materialism, and uniformitarianism.� Naturalism claims that God does nothing.� Materialism claims that there is no God or spiritual realm.� Uniformitarianism claims that there was not creation and that there was no violent worldwide flood, as the Bible and numerous other historical accounts record.� Whatever they observe that does not conform to this complex filter is censored.� The way that it is censored can take several forms.� The ungodly may boldly proclaim that, though the data appears to support God's version and refute the version of the ungodly, yet it still must be interpreted to mean just the opposite of what it does mean.� A backup method that ungodly people use is to prophecy that in the future, science will be able to explain what they see as an anomaly.� If that fails, they will hide the data, set it aside, or lie to keep the public from knowing the truth.� The data clearly demolishes the story of the ungodly and clearly supports the reality of the Creator God, His Bible, and His abiding Presence in His people.� When confronted with the obvious, a closed-minded ungodly person says, "I can't understand it."� They are willingly ignorant because they refuse to hold God in their knowledge.� The reality is that these people, for whatever reason, don't what to know the Creator.� They don't want to truly know Jesus, their Creator.

Numbers 15:39... and that ye seek not after your own mind and your own ability to observe, with which you used to commit fornication:

Psalm 53:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Proverbs 28:26 He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walks wisely, he shall be delivered.

Jeremiah 23:16 Thus says the LORD of hosts, Hearken not to the words of the prophets that prophesy to you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD. They say still to them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say to every one that walks after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you.

James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

Summary

Many theologians have a strong tendency toward rationalized or spiritualized speculation. Many make the mistake of thinking that the Bible has no more authority than their own carnal minds.
