#ec1dot23 - Foolish Things and Arrogant Eyes
From California to Virginia and Australia to the UK welcome to Another Empty Conversation the show that lets you eavesdrop on our conversation about faith and following Jesus. We talk about our faith so you can talk about yours.
This week we kick off a 5 week set of shows that looks at Foolish Things and what happens to people who ignore wise advice. The wisest advice would probably be don’t do the things that an all-powerful God says he hates. Over the next 5 weeks each Empty Conversation podcast will discuss one part of the deadly sins that God hates. You can find this list in Proverbs 6:16-19. Each podcast, like every podcast, will be accompanied by blogs from the EC crew that expand on our recorded discussion. You can find these blogs on our website or on social media.
Additionally, we are spending the next 31 days walking through the book of Proverbs. Each day a new devotional will become available to dive deeper into the wisdom of Proverbs. But in order to get access to these daily devotionals you need to signup. It is really easy, just go to www.empty.church/foolish, click the sign-up button, and fill out a short form. Each day you will get an email with the new devotional.
We are kicking off this new series talking about pride and arrogance. No one likes an arrogant jerk but pride can sneak into our lives in unexpected ways. Today’s discussion starts in talking about our pride and takes a u-turn to discuss the possibility that God guilty of the very thing he says he hates.
We would love for you to jump into our discussion this week.
Some conversations don’t immediately reach their conclusions - I think this is one of them. It is easy for Christians to become arrogant in their theology and that does not help those who don’t completely understand it. It is just as easy for non-Christians to dismiss Christian belief because it can be difficult to explain.
Arrogance is what can keep us continually studying and examining and clarifying our beliefs - and that is a foolish thing.
