Posted on 01/30/2010 6:11:25 PM PST by The Ignorant Fisherman
2000 years ago before Jesus was crucified and rose from the dead, He chose men. The elite class and religious rulers of that day called these men ignorant. God, however, called these men to be His Fishermen and Ambassadors to the dying world.
"Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men" (Mark 1:14-17).
"Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus" (Acts 4:13).

All praise and glory to Him for His Wisdom and His Grace!
1 Corinthians 1 is my all time favorite passage of Scripture.
This article is bizarre...That's your own private interpretation...
We KNOW that the people God calls to spread His word must have at least 8 years of formal education plus a seminary education...And most importantly, they must be trained in philosophy...They also need a working knowledge of Greek and Latin...
2Co 1:12 For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.
2Co 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
Praise God that He chose simple, uneducated people like John, and Peter and millions upon millions of folks like myself to reveal Himself thru His words...
And God warns us that we can educate ourselves right out of knowing Him...
Holy Spirit trumps worldly education any day.
I’ve noticed though the more I learn about God and his word, the more I feel inspired to know more , so Greek and Latin will be in my future....
But it has nothing to do with knowing God. He can speak ad reveal to whomever he likes in whatever language or communication mode they need....
A long-winded, banal blogpimp
A vain shameless blogpimp?
I’m usually the first one to jump all over blogpimps but IF is a singular, shining exception.
The mods also have informed me that rules in the religion forum are more relaxed.
IF is not promoting him(or her)self, but the word of God. I have no problem with that.
That’s all it is... Those like to use that term (Pimp) its because the message bothers them.. It’s a way of lashing out for them. They show their cards every time. The term Ignorant Fishermen has been long used by those who are elitist and Religious elite snobs.. as a derogatory term to label the believers of Christ in Spirit and truth. The “rant - post” is to encourage those to trust Almighty God and to not let the Demonic influenced elites discourage them. That you are not alone Peter, John, James, Andrew.. etc... were called the same.
Again to all the haters... find my name or other names on the blog...you will NOT... We are not about that. All Is done for the glory of God and to get Gods message out. If you have not ears to hear then move along We will not be offended at all..
No one said that any had to check out the links we provide. There are hundreds of posts a week and several forms to use.
For whoever doesnt understand this simple encouraging message you are to wise in the world eyes and to brutish on the things that pertain of and to God Those are not my Words they are Almighty Gods (1Cor 1:18-31
We have been posting for almost 2 years and we have had thousands of views and great input from many. If no one came we would fade away
(Example -Air America)
But that is not the case.. We have been growing by leaps and bounds God be Praised!
Ist all for Gods glory. If you think our message is stupid then pass us by If you enjoy our message and it gives you hope, blessing and encouragement in the reality of the things that pertain to Almighty God and the Bible.. God be praised!
Thanks for your ear,
To God be the Glory!
