Words without knowledge.

The heavens break their silence and Almighty God speaks to a mortal man. How incredible that He inspired the Bible’s authors to record His words.

Spoken out of a whirlwind, His words in these verses also apply to contemporary evangelism. Many sincere people preach the gospel but fail to precede it with God’s moral Law. Such preachers ignore the fact that the Law brings the knowledge of sin (Rom. 3:20), and thus the counsel of the gospel remains darkened “words without knowledge” to lost sinners.

The preaching of the cross will be foolishness to the world as long as we fail to walk in the footsteps of Jesus and open up the divine Law before we preach the gospel (see Mark 10:17–21; Luke 10:25–37; 18:18–22).

Job 38:1 The Lord Reveals His Omnipotence to Job Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said:2 “Who is this who darkens counsel By words without knowledge?

One Response to Words without knowledge.

    There tends to be a mindset that the “law” is no longer – that anyone who tries to instill the law will then be judged by the law and not by grace. The law shows our sin and we cannot continue in our sins if we have been crucified with Christ. How do you witness to those who seem to think that we are “under grace” and can do as we please, that Christ takes our sins so we don’t have to worry about them? This is of course not my attitude but i see my walk as one of servanthood (and not as one of being served by God). I have had concerned comments that by separating myself from television, alcohol, parties, holidays abroad, and spending my weekends serving the Lord that i will go through life with “no fun” and that i must “enjoy my life”. How do you respond to this mindset or are they perhaps right in some way?
