You Can't Fix Stupid

Do not Correct Fools


"Why do you not talk about things like what happened in Ferguson, Missouri? Why do you not advocate Praying for Peace in the Middle East? Why is all I see here Bible Quotes and instructions to those who claim to be Saved. Do you not care what is going on in the World? Do you not care about teaching people what they are doing is dumb and there is a better way?"

My answer? You can't fix Stupid. You can Educate Ignorance. The Simple can learn. But you cannot fix Stupid. God does not even want you to try. Don't believe me?

{Proverbs 9:1-12}
"Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars: She hath killed her beasts; she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished her table. She hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the highest places of the city, Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him, Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine which I have mingled.

Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding. He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a blot. Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee. Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased. If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it."
God does not want you to waste your time on stupid people. Jesus even said..

{Matthew 7:6}
"Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you."
There will be people who do not accept the Truth. There will be people who will never be Saved. There are people that will even hate you, for His sake. Just because you ARE a Child of God. Just because you follow Jesus. There will be people that hate you for no other reason than that. Meanwhile, they are the Condemned. Not you. Not the Children of God. Jesus tells us not to even worry about them. They will do what they do. To the People who wanted to join and follow Jesus, Jesus told them this

{Matthew 8:22}
"But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead."
Does Jesus teach us to get into people's faces? Does He want us shoving the Word down people's throat? Hit people over the head with the Bible? Change the World? Nope. When Jesus told His Disciples to go out into the World and share the Message, He said this..

{Matthew 10:14-15}
"And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city."
Jesus tells us not to waste our time. Do not hate them. Do not force your Faith on them. Do not waste their time. They are not going to hear you. They are not going to accept the Truth. Move on. Let them be. Leave them to their own desires. Even God gives us up to our own desires if we chose not to accept Him.

{Romans 1:24-26}
"Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:"
You see, God tells us not to do something, because He LOVES us. However, we have Freewill. We can chose not to listen. An ignorant person may think, look at the pretty orange light of the fire. I wonder what it feels like. You can educate that person and tell them, that although it is pretty, if you touch it, it will burn you. An ignorant person may listen and not touch it. A stupid person will touch it and get burned. Did I burn them? Was it punishment for them disobeying? Am I heartless and vengeful? No. I simply told them the Truth, and they did not listen. They burned themselves.

God is the same. He came to Earth as one of us, paid the Price for our Sins, and all we have to do is accept His Plan for us. All we have to do is listen. Jesus told us..

{John 3:16-18}
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."
"He that believeth not is condemned already," There is nothing you can do for them. You tell them the Truth, and they reject it, they are on their own. Did God condemn them because they do not accept Jesus? NO! They condemn themselves. They are "condemned already" Why? "because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." That's it. It's really that simple.

So let's talk about Ferguson, Missouri. That is a clear example of Stupid People. I know, I know, some of you may get offended at this. But think about it. You come to my house, and you do something horrible to me. A Wise Person, would give it to God.

{Romans 12:19}
"Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord."
I speak from experience. This WORKS. Trust me. God can and will repay in ways you could never do. Trust in Him. Then you have the Ignorant. The Ignorant Person may, go to your house. Smash your car. Burn down your House. Meanwhile thinking this is OK. Why? "An eye for an eye."

Now let's talk about Ferguson. You come to my house and do something Horrible to me, in my mind at least. So what do I do? I go into MY frig, trash the food in it. I go to MY Closet, trash everything in in. I go outside and smash MY Car and burn down MY House. That will teach you.... Really? You can't fix Stupid.

All the looting, violence, and destruction will never change anything. Truth is, they do not really care to change anything. All they used this incident for is an excuse. They are acting out because they are of their Father the Devil and the things He does, they will do also. The Heart of man is evil continuously and the inventions of will be as well.

Jesus did not try to change the World. Jesus did not try to teach Stupid. He gave us all a better way. He left it up to the individual to chose a Blessing or a Curse. Life or Death. He did not take away our Freewill, he gave us something better to choose.

Still do not believe me? When Jesus was Praying, He said this..

{John 17:9}
"I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine."
His concern then, and now, is that we come out of the World. "I pray not for the world" He even said this.. 

{John 17:14}
"I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world."
Jesus left the World to it's own devises. It's own way. He did not try to change it. The World's fate is sealed. He came to bring us out of it. To Save us from it. From death itself. What happened in Ferguson, Missouri, what happens in the Middle East, the Wars, and rumor of Wars, the evils that men do, are all of the World. They are all a product of the Flesh and absence of God. The only way you could fix that is by the individuals involved, accepting God and His Plan and Purpose. But then, you would not be able to get free stuff and burn things down, because someone told you you should.

I Pray daily for an unlimited number of Salvations. I Pray that those that hear the Truth, will accept it, and it will become a powerful Seed, Planted in fertile soil, to bring forth a mighty Harvest. But I do not Pray, as Jesus did not Pray, for the World. For Peace. For the World to change. The World is what it is. It will be what it is. You could not change it if you wanted to. Only YOU can change YOU.

Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray..

"Oh heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins. Please send the Spirit of Adoption into my life. Help me to get to know the real you. Save me. Please. In the name of Jesus, Amen!"

That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be. You are now a Child of God. A new Creature. You "have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." {Colossians 3:10}

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. {2 Corinthians 13}
