** Warning, long after DTW came into contact with Prof Johan Malan did we discover his ecumenical/undercover Calvinist ideologies. Please see this article here to see how the story unfolds. I will not be deleting Johan Malan’s articles from DTW as there are just too many, instead I will use this as an opportunity to warn readers at the beginning of each article. Since discovering Prof Johan Malan’s true colours. DTW has stopped promoting him. DTW loves Prof Malan and prays that he stops following false teachers and their teachings for the sake of the flock and himself.
Ten Kinds of Foolishness
by Prof. Johan Malan, Mossel Bay, South Africa (April 2010) [Note: Permission received to publish this article in full.]
The knowledge of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Prov. 9:10). Contrary to this, the beginning of foolishness is to deny God and think and live according to one’s own, limited understanding. The natural knowledge and desires of human beings are perverted because of the Fall. A life without the knowledge of God is the breeding-ground for deception and wrong priorities. The Bible refers to the following ten kinds of spiritual foolishness, some of which even Christians may be guilty of:
1. The foolishness of denying God
“The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt and have done abominable iniquity; there is none who does good. God looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any who understand, who seek God. Every one of them has turned aside; they have together become corrupt; there is none who does good, no, not one” (Ps. 53:1-3). Paul elaborates further upon this moral depravity: “With their tongues they have practised deceit… whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness. Their feet are swift to shed blood; destruction and misery are in their ways; and the way of peace they have not known. There is no fear of God before their eyes” (Rom. 3:13-18).
