Unreasonable People

“And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper.”  Romans 1:28

If you have ever talked with someone who would not listen to you, then you know what it means when the bible says, “they did not see fit to acknowledge God.”  It can be frustrating to talk to an unreasonable person, who is unwilling to consider another point of view.  

Everyone is entitled to believe what they will, but only reasonable people can know the truth.  Romans 1 refers to the cyclical history of the world, and why God abandons people to a depraved mind, which is a mind incapable of reason.  God created men to reason, which is the ability to think loigically, question cause and effect, and understand why things happen the way they do, if possible. 

In the context of Romans 1 the universe is complex and orderly, which gives clear evidence of design and an eternal creator, however, because men did not want to be held accountable to God for their actions, He gave them over to an inability to reason in this way.  Therefore men replaced the true eternal God with idols of wood, iron and, stone that hear, see, and exist not.

Only God can open the mind of the unreasonable, which is why every Christian is inadequate to save, however, by faith we share the gospel and trust God to accomplish all His will.

About GI

I write a blog called Godly Increase to help people understand that life is not at all what it seems. The masses live as though there is no God, but apart from Him nothing else could exist. God not only created but also sustains our world, so that all what seems to be governed by the laws of physics are themselves controlled by the divine person who wrote a book to explain the meaning of life. The book is the Bible and it is the only source of truth on the planet. Within God's book secondary causes are articulated, but God is the primary cause of all things. Some may plant, others may water, but it is God that causes the growth.
