Silencing Fools

"For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men." 1 Peter 2:15

This is an era of foolish men, and women (and children). It is an era in which people build themselves up in their own eyes and even aspire to become gods. (Fat chance.)

It is a day of dark mindedness, of selfishness, of arrogance. People have high opinions of themselves. It is a day of foolishness.

Foolishness is in political correctness, in the schools, in the churches, in the world of finance, in 'so-called science' (which the Bible calls it), certainly in government, in relationships, in understanding, and in wisdom.

"Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools." Romans 1:22

"The Lord shall have them in derision." Psalm 2:4

Up is down, right is wrong, good is evil, black is white. If you are care about the world's opinion to any degree, you will keep your mouth shut about almost everything, because if you speak truth you will be attacked and persecuted - by fools. It is a pointless exercise to 'cast your pearls before the swine.' In other words, don't waste your time arguing with foolishness. Their eyes are blind and they cannot see. Save your pearls for those whose eyes are open, who want to know truth.

Christ is our example. When he was reviled, he "reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously" 1 Peter 2:23.

If you suffer persecution, take it without rancor, but silently and patiently, for "this is acceptable with God" (1 Peter 2:20).

You will be vindicated in time. God will have the last word.
