Intellectual selection is beyond natural

When intellect declares that nothing exists but matter, it proclaims that its thoughts are nothing but atoms working in the skull. To know how life works, but not know why it works, may satisfy the intellect, but it leaves the heart empty.

The intellect
Likes to collect
And to boast
That it knows
The most.

Tends to neglect
Spiritual insight
If it can’t be shown
On a slab
In a lab.

It’s easy to be smart
And completely miss
The art
Of Wisdom.

The intellect may claim to prove that moral standards are meaningless, but consequences prove otherwise. If we apply the scientific method to morality, we’ll see that many behaviors produce consequences that disprove our self-justifications.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
