Romans 1:22 “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.”

In the Wall Street Journal article referenced in my previous post, the most interesting finding regards the intentional ignorance about the compelling research that uplifts the Bible-based family as the preferred alternative to all others.  The authors state the following:

“Yet in the current discussions about increased inequality, few researchers, fewer reporters, and no one in the executive branch of government directly addresses what seems to be the strongest statistical correlate of inequality in the United States: the rise of single-parent families during the past half century.”

They go on to say the following about the primary professional organizations engaged in inequality research:

“In the past four years, our two academic professional organizations—the American Political Science Association and the American Educational Research Association—have each dedicated annual meetings to inequality, with numerous papers and speeches denouncing free markets, the decline of unions, and ‘neoliberalism’ generally as exacerbating economic inequality. Yet our searches of the groups’ conference websites fail to turn up a single paper or panel addressing the effects of family change on inequality.”

Though the world ignores the viewpoint on this issue that does not coincide with their political agenda, it doesn’t make the truth any less true.  In fact, the more adamant they are in claiming a prominent role of second-order factors in American inequality, the more they reveal themselves as politically and not practically motivated.  The more they claim wisdom apart from the Bible (and compelling research), the more they reveal themselves as fools.

PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICAN CHRISTIANS WOULD NOT BE AFRAID TO SPEAK THE TRUTH ON BIBLE-BASED ISSUES.  No matter how loud the world trumpets their viewpoints, the Biblical viewpoint is the one that our nation must hear and heed.  Our spiritual and practical well-being are at stake, regardless of what the ‘wise’ among us would have us to believe.
