Be More Noble

These (Bereans) were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

Acts 17:11

How do you become more noble? By being more skeptical.

Receive with readiness of mind, but search matters out to find out if they are true.

You will often find, as with so many other things, those who accuse you of “blind faith” are, in fact, the ones who believe things simply because some celebrity says they are.

Faith is never blind.

In fact, you have to put the “blind” in front of the “faith” to even create it.

And while we’re at it: “blind faith” is an oxymoron. It is like saying a ”courageous coward’ or ‘dry water’. This is a error propagated by people who aren’t well trained in their own language, English, or any other language probably.

What these people are actually trying to say is idolatry — the worship or solicitation to something powerless to aid or render service. That’s really what they mean, but they aren’t bright enough to realize it.

This word game is of infinite amusement to people who actually think, reason, and believe.

However, the inverse is in effect also.

How do you become more ignoble or lowly?

Knowing something is true and denying it.
