"Hath God said?"

I am so thankful to have a husband who is aware of my tendency to seek knowledge outside of him and God. I admit I am an extremely curious type. Most women are.

I, like Eve am at times carnal and think that it isn't any big deal for me to Google my questions.... innocent, perhaps even noble questions about God, child training, home management, marriage and all too often I get 26,300 results from a very subtle fellow disguised as an expert who says things like "Aw....You wont die God knows that when you Google your questions or pose them on discussion boards your eyes will be opened, and you will be smarter ....just like God!" or even more subtle than that..."Did God really say He didn't want you to enjoy this or that?" The very first recorded words of the devil are *Hath God said?* Some things never change...

The devil really is very subtle isn't he?I mean who would think that just seeking wisdom... even wisdom about spiritual things could be so dangerous? I wonder if the modern day tree of good and evil isn't subtly disguised as the Internet? Perhaps that tree in the garden was a resource of vast knowledge that God didn't intend for us to have ....not outside of relationship with Him anyway.


  1. This is such an important topic. Thanks for writing about it. I too as a woman am geared toward trying to google my answers from the net "which has all the right answers" rather than going to my husband who is normaly right. But I guess we are somtimes so stubborn. We give are husbands great advice and then forget to use the advice for ourselves. May the Lord Bless your writing. Keep up the wonderful posting. I really enjoy your blog.


  2. Great insight on the gaining wisdom. We always enjoy your blog!!!
