Unfortunately, her counterpart, Folly, has the upper hand when it comes to getting attention Prov 9: If your answer to the above question is yes, you might have an occult epistemology.
What is occult epistemology, you ask? Pertaining to hidden knowledge of supernatural power Epistemology: The philosophy of how to attain knowledge Occult epistemology teaches that there are two levels of knowledge.
The lower level is the knowledge that can be gained by observation and reason through the normal and boring disciplines of history, science, philosophy, etc. The higher level of knowledge that leads to supernatural power is not laid open to ordinary observation and disciplined reason but is secretly layered on top of ordinary reality in a system of hidden symbols that only the initiated can interpret.
The modern occult movement of the 19th century looked back to the ancient mystery religions for this knowledge. One of those religions was Gnosticisma blending of mystery religion and Christianity.
The word heretic as we use it today, was created to describe Gnostics. They were heretics because they preached salvation through secret knowledge instead of salvation through Jesus. In Proverbs, Wisdom does not consist in a system of hidden symbols, but rather is publicly available Prov 8: God created reality with but one level of knowledge Prov 8: Rather, it is Folly that deals in secrets Prov 9: Today we not only have a modern expression of ancient mystery religions known as the occult, we also have a modern expression of Gnosticism—Christian conspiracy preachers who teach attainment of spiritual power through secret knowledge of hidden symbols.
They purport to warn you against the occult, while at the same time adopting occult epistemology in order to explain its power.
Rihanna When conspiracy teachers blend Christianity and occult epistemology they end up with two levels of spiritual knowledge. So you need to advance to that second level of hidden knowledge that is only available through an extra-biblical system of hidden symbols, which only the initiated can understand.
None of it does anything to bring your heart closer to Jesus, and you end up trusting in your knowledge about the inner-workings supernatural power to save you from Satan.
Recognize that true spiritual knowledge starts with Jesus Prov 9: Get close to Jesus. Instead of studying conspiracy theories, spend time in prayer. In that light, conspiracy preaching holds a more subtle danger than popular entertainment, because you think your heart is close to God when the reality is far from it.
Study the symbolic system of Scripture. The Bible is replete with ritual, typological, and apocalyptic symbolism.
God uses it to communicate spiritual truths that are too profound for simple explanation. Nowhere in Scripture are we encouraged to look to a hidden knowledge outside the Bible to interpret the symbols in the Bible.
Rather, the Bible provides its own interpretive keys, which are not hidden and available only to initiates, but open to all. The symbolic system of Scripture is deep enough to sustain a lifetime of study, but it has a simple message: God is in control, put your trust in Him.For Walden graduates, commencement is a momentous occasion—as it represents hard work throughout the years culminating in an event to mark academic achievement.
