Over the past few days I have been reading Matthew`s gospel and was greatly struck by the word “HID” in chapter 11.
Matthew 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.
This morning I was presented with a wonderful modern day illustration of the truths presented in this verse.
An item on the Nolan show revealed that creation ministries will be in N.Ireland presenting the Bible truths about creation. The link is below.
Naturally the presenter of the radio show and a “guest commentator,” namely one Basil McCrea, put their best efforts into trying to discredit the truth. Puffed up with their own intellects they kept insisting the earth is millions of years old and “modern science” cannot be wrong!
The debate perfectly illustrated Matthew 11:25 and it illustrates the greatest paradox of all.
Almighty God has freely revealed the truth about salvation, history, the sciences, the future and all the other important aspects of human life. Yet simultaneously while revealing the truth, Almighty God hides it from God haters like Basil McCrea!
