Has Common Sense Lost Its Reasoning?

imagesAccording to the Macmillan Dictionary, ‘common sense’ is “the ability to make good judgment and make sensible decisions” (MacMillan Dictionary).

For further clarification on the words ‘common sense’ I went to the MacMillan Dictionary Thesaurus which helps to broaden our perspective on the topic of ‘common sense and reasoning’ which is a follows:

Intelligence is an ability to understand and think about things, and to gain and use knowledge

Intuition is an ability to know or understand something through your feelings, rather than by considering facts or evidence

Intellect is the ability to think in an intelligent way and to understand difficult or complicated ideas and subjects

Vision is the ability to think about and plan for the future, using intelligence and imagination, especially in politics and business

Common Sense is the ability to use good judgment and make sensible decisions

Wisdom is the ability to make good decisions based on knowledge and experience

Judgment is your ability to understand a situation well and make good decisions

Clarity is the ability to think clearly or understand things clearly

Brilliance is great skill or intelligence

Reason is the human ability to think in an intelligent way, make sensible decisions, and form clear arguments

Now let’s hear the Word of the Lord:

“Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord“Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool. (Isaiah 1:18).

In Isaiah 1:18-20 God was calling His people to repentance back then and is still calling His people to repentance in our present day. It is clear that the Gospel message is contained in verse 18.

The blood of Christ washes and cleanses anyone who comes with a repentant heart before God to receive forgiveness of their sins, and we are assured eternal life through Jesus Christ alone. But yet the world will seek anything but Christ being their One and Only true escape from a fate that is worse than death itself which is to spend an eternity in the liquid lake of fire.

If we take a look at what is happening in the world today, it is a very situation that is happening before our very eyes. There will be no excuse for no one, who unfortunately has to stand before God at the Great White throne judgment. In Proverbs 1:2-7 it writes that we are:

To know wisdom and instruction, To perceive the words of understandingTo receive the instruction of wisdom, Justice, judgment, and equity; To give prudence to the simple, To the young man knowledge and discretion— A wise man will hear and increase learning, And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel, To understand a proverb and an enigma, The words of the wise and their riddles. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

The world needs Jesus now more than ever before, and as the time draws nearer to Christ’s return, it becomes clearer that common sense is losing its reasoning from day to day.

Let us pray: “Father, we praise You for Your goodness and mercy that You have extended toward the human race who are created in Your image and likeness. Father, we thank You for being so longsuffering toward us, thus giving an equal opportunity to turn back to You with each waking moment You give us from day to day.

Father, I ask You to have mercy upon as we seek Your face to wash and cleanse us throughly from all our iniquities with the blood of Christ. Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew a right and steadfast spirit within us we pray (Psalm 51:10). Father God, and Lord of the Harvest; the world needs Jesus and we want to be Your laborers to bring in the end time harvest of souls who need to be rescued from the jaws of hell (Matthew 9:38).

Father God, we pray that You will grant multitudes a Damascus experience so that their eyes can be opened to turn them from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, and that they may receive forgiveness of their sins and an inheritance with the saints of God in Jesus’ Name of pray, Amen (Acts 26:18).
