What an awesome game last night. USC was 34-0 over the last 3 years and going for a 3-peat in NCAA football. They were playing the Texas Longhorns who were ranked # 2. All of the so-called experts were calling USC a dynasty. USC had 2 heisman trophy winners. They are an awesome team but no one was giving Texas a chance. In the words of Lee Corso of ESPN, "not so fast my friend." Texas won an exciting game and the National Championship. The experts aren't always right. Some people make themselves experts and actaully become arrogant. This isn't reserved only for sports. In the work-place, home, school and at church some people feel they are God's answer for everything. "Not so fast my friend." Arrogance is completely against the nature of God. Just look at what is going on in the SBC. Wade Burleson had a great article about bullying in the SBC. The conservative resurgence of the 1970's and 1980's was very needed in the SBC. There were many liberal bullies in positions in the SBC and needed to be removed. Now they have been replaced with conservative bullies. Some of these leaders feel that God has placed them in position to control. After all, they are the experts. I worked for a pastor that had the arrogance to tell his staff that God had given him a special power to know what was right for the church. "NOT SO FAST MY FRIEND!" What if the experts are wrong? There are black and white truths in the Bible. We as followers of Christ must live by those. But in my years of life I have come to understand that God doesn't give us everything in black and white. I wish He did. But what has happened over the centuries is there are different denominations and beliefs that agree on the key beliefs. Why can't we just live in harmony with those. Unfortunately, the arrogant want to say they know best and their way is right. "Not so fast my friend." What will happen when we get to heaven and we find out that those who have the most crowns and rewards in heaven are not the ones who are the "so called" experts today. I can see it now--the "Experts" will try to take their place in the high places of heaven and God will say, "Not so fast my friend."
