I CORINTHIANS 3:19,20
19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”;
20 and again, “The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.”
WE OFTEN THINK WE ARE IMPRESSING GOD WITH OUR GREAT WORLDLY HEAD KNOWLEDGE; MANY THINK THEY HAVE NO NEED OF GOD BECAUSE THEY HAVE BECOME SO WISE IN THE THINGS OF THE WORLD, INTELLECTUALLY MASTERING ALL MANNER OF TASKS, TECHNOLOGY, & THE LIKE.
GOD, HOWEVER, IS CREATOR OF ALL, INCLUDING KNOWLEDGE AND WISDOM. FOR WHATEVER KNOWLEDGE IS VALID, HAS MERELY BEEN PROVIDED BY GOD ALMIGHTY FOR THE BENEFIT OF HUMANKIND. IT’S AS THOUGH HUMANS SEEM TO THINK THEY’VE RISEN ABOVE THE NEED FOR A GOD BECAUSE THEY’VE MASTERED ALL MANNER OF SCIENTIFIC PRINCIPLES, UNDERSTANDINGS, & ACHIEVEMENTS. LITTLE DO THEY REALIZE, GOD HAS MERELY PROVIDED THESE DISCOVERIES FOR THEM TO UNDERSTAND HIS CREATION BETTER.
SO, YES, OF COURSE, OUR THOUGHTS ARE USELESS; OUR WISDOM IS USELESS. IT HAS VALUE ONLY IN-AS-MUCH-AS WE RECOGNIZE GOD AS THE SOURCE OF ANY KNOWLEDGE &/OR WISDOM THAT HAS REAL MEANING; ONLY AS WE GIVE HIM THE GLORY FOR OUR WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING AND KNOWLEDGE. LET US NOT FAIL TO GIVE HIM THE GLORY.
