Think about the worst intellectual matchups possible. For instance, what if we put Albert Einstein in a room with a first-grader to debate the theory of relativity? Or how about George Washington Carver versus a middle-schooler discussing biochemical engineering?
It’s silly to think of putting these pairs together for discussions. One is the ultimate expert; the other would little if anything about the topic.
Here’s another one: God versus anyone arguing about His plan for mankind. Now we’re talking about mismatch! Yet we often hear of people trying to explain away God’s matchless wisdom and their way is better than His.
How ridiculous to reject God’s plan of salvation because we think we know better! Only by placing our trust in Christ for the forgiveness of our sins can we be reconciled to God (John 14:6; Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23). Are you still trying to do things your own way, thinking you know best? (Proverbs 16:25). Agree with God and go His way. – Dave Branon
There aren’t many ways into heaven; The Bible says there’s only one: Confessing Christ Jesus as Savior, Believing in God’s only Son. – Sper
Jesus is not one of many ways to approach God, nor is He the best of several; He is the only way. – Tozer
