1 Peter 1:13, Therefore with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at His coming.
Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum viditur . We live in a day of inundation when it comes to information. Our children our bombarded with all kind of information, biblical, political, statistical, etc. The challenge is to cull the useless and inaccurate and integrate and retain the useful. Then, the real difference makers are able to process that information into behaviors that work towards a noble and focused life purpose. That is some challenge even for those of us who are approaching the long in the tooth stage!
God has given us a wonderful gift in the ability to develop our critical thinking. Not to be confused with condemnation or ridicule, our critical thinking is the ability to integrate reason, history, and empirical evidence to form foundations of truth and moral values that shape our worldview. Our Christian witness is both a training ground and a launching pad for those we serve well by keeping the mission before us of making disicples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. That mighty purpose allows our fellow travelers in Christ to go one better than just developing a worldview through critical thinking; they move forward on a trajectory set by a biblical worldview that will grow and be stretched for the remainder of their time here on earth as they prepare for eternity. Thanks be to God and bless you all in your witness for Jesus!
One more thing, the translation of the Latin Phrase, “Anything in Latin sounds profound.” J
