“No, You Can’t!”

Isaiah 29:18-24

The very opposite of a positive response to insistence in the name of God (perhaps) is this: theological bullshit out of the mouths of those who claim to be faithful is a problem (might I even say, an abomination). What they think is wise is the kind of foolishness that will ultimately bring their downfall.
