How to be an Idiot: Think Less of Your Role Than God Does

How to be an Idiot

Accepting what God has said in the Bible can be difficult, and in 1 Timothy 2:9-15, Paul speaks about the role of women, the way she was formed to glorify God specifically and the impact that sin has on that role. Why should a woman exhibit submission to God in singleness, or to a husband in her role in marriage? 1) The order of creation, and 2) divine dictate. "The way you respond to this passage says more about how you view God's Word than what you'd put on a list [of priorities]".

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.
