~1 Corinthians 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
God has written all that we need for salvation within the pages of His Holy Word. It is THE source for every part of your life, teen girl. When Christ was in the world and being tempted by the devil, He said:
~Luke 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
God, Himself, instructed you to turn to His Word when you are under attack – undergoing temptations, trials, etc. Jesus, Himself, used this method and He would know exactly what His child needs. If Christ needed it, then you need it!
There are people who get caught up in philosophy and love to get into discussions on religion to show off their “knowledge.” These same people also like to complicate the Scriptures. The Bible is a guide and will lead people down the path to Jesus Christ. But philosophers love to make it complicated so people will look at them in awe as though they are the only ones who can understand Bible matters. Then you have those who try to combine science and philosophy to distract the lost with palm reading, ghost hunting, vampires, etc. These are smokescreens and distractions which lead the lost into more darkness. The Word of God sheds light and opens your eyes, teen girl. God’s Word will protect you from the devil’s lies and deceptions.
“We are not called to proclaim philosophy and metaphysics, but the simple gospel.” Charles Haddon Spurgeon
