Two tiers

At that time Jesus declared, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will.(Matthew 11:25)

I’ve heard some scholars worry that if people like mystics, and those believers who say the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit works through His people today, are allowed to have influence it will result in a two-tiered Christianity. The fact is we have already have accepted a two-tiered Christianity with those who are intellectually gifted enough to be experts on the scriptures seated a few notches higher than the rest.

The highly educated religious experts from the time when Jesus walked the earth were not oblivious to this inequity; it formed their power base. They killed Jesus to protect it.

Jesus pointed out that knowledge of the holy is not hidden from the humble with child-like faith. He still takes children on his knee and whispers the secrets of the universe in their ears.

Can you hear Him chuckling?
