How to be an Idiot: Isolate Yourself

How to be an Idiot

It may come as a surprise that it is not enough to simply love Jesus; we must also have a connectedness with the body of Christ. As Christians, we must be connected to (a) God's word; (b) God's spirit and (c) God's people. This lesson is a model for participation in a small group where accountability, brotherly correction, community, differing personalities and encouragement equal fellowship.

About 'How to be an Idiot'

The ancient Greeks had a word for it - "idios" - someone consumed with his own interests and opinions. It's the origin of the English word "idiot," someone we regard today as lacking wisdom or good judgment. And, interestingly enough, the Bible has a lot to say about idiots, either painting vivid portraits of individuals relying on their own reasoning or laying out specific warnings about the danger of pursuing our own instincts and desires when they run contrary to Gods Word. In this 12-part series Todd Wagner helps us recognize our innate tendencies to reject wisdom and provides practical insight for living blessed, purposeful lives.
