Q: Man's wisdom or God's wisdom?

A: The approach for studying God's Word, understanding the natural world, and living our lives for the Lord rests upon a very important question: "Should I use man's wisdom or God's wisdom?" The desire for man's wisdom as opposed to God's wisdom within the scientific community has resulted in the tendency to look to man's wisdom on the science of origins and disregard God's wisdom. This broad disregard for God's wisdom has resulted in a struggle for creationists to help our brothers and sisters in Christ, as well as helping the unbelieving world understand that it was in wisdom that God has made all things (Psalms 104:24).
The understanding that God is our Creator, according to Genesis, is the basis for our looking first and foremost to the Bible for answers. As Christians, our lives, our faith, and understanding the world around us is based upon the authority of the Word of God (the Bible). The Bible touches every aspect of our lives, and it is by the Spirit's leading that we are able to discern the differences between man's wisdom and God's wisdom. As we study the Bible, it is interesting to discover that the Apostle Paul also considered the issue of whose wisdom we use to be very important for the first-century believers. Similar to today, the first-century church had a problem discerning the differences between man's wisdom and God's wisdom.
