Who to hear? The Smarter-Than-Thou Snots, or God’s Foolish Things?

Somebody who doubts that the KJB is “the” word of God for today’s world, says it like this:

“If one group that is telling me something are respected Evangelical scholars, and another group are rabid KJVOs, I am going to choose to go with the first group until I have decided for myself.”

___Well, well, let’s see what the Bible says about these “respected Evangelical scholars”:

John 7:15 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?

Acts 4:13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.

John 7:19 Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me?
20 The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about to kill thee?

Matthew 23:16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!
17 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?

Matthew 23:24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

Matthew 23:34 ¶Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:

John 7:45 ¶Then came the officers to the chief priests and Pharisees; and they said unto them, Why have ye not brought him?
46 The officers answered, Never man spake like this man.
47 Then answered them the Pharisees, Are ye also deceived?
48 Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed on him?
49 But this people who knoweth not the law are cursed.

These “respected Evangelical scholars” need a Nicodemus:

John 7:51 Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?

But of course the “respected Evangelical scholars” really have a monopoly on the carnal knowledge of the word:

John 7:52 They answered and said unto him, Art thou also of Galilee? Search, and look: for out of Galilee ariseth no prophet.
53 And every man went unto his own house.

That’s because 1 Corinthians 8:1b…we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth.

What kind of people does God use to tell the truth?

1 Corinthians 1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
