Adam fell into low, carnal, natural living when he sinned against God and he fell to human reasoning.  Before the Fall Adam had direct communication with God and he was able to receive revealed knowledge from God.  He had all the right answers he needed to maintain the Garden he was given stewardship over.  If he had continued in his unbroken fellowship with God he would have known at all times how to handle all situations in his life in the Garden.  He would have wisdom in his marriage, his family, his Garden duties, and he would have had the wisdom to expand the Garden which was God’s intent, God’s assignment to Adam.

So Adam fell from revealed knowledge to human reasoning which puts any person in a position of trial and error, a few right answers and mostly wrong answers and just plain guessing.

I was prompted by the Holy Spirit to write about the dangers of human reasoning because today most Christians aren’t even aware of how much humanistic, natural, carnal thoughts pass through their minds every day and just how much they depend on their reasoning instead of being led by their spirit by the Holy Spirit.  Human reasoning is dangerous because it brings you to a place where you can’t hear from God and leaves you in a place where you live by trial and error and what mankind can do for you or you begin to believe you can only expect what naturally you can expect but not so with God’s revelation knowledge for it comes from your spirit by the Holy Spirit and you are given the wisdom of God in every given situation that produces God’s answers, God’s solutions.

Here is what human reasoning, according to the bible, will produce for Christians:

Rom 8:6-8 For to be carnally minded is death;…7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. KJV

Human reasoning cannot please God for it takes God out of everything and exalts humanity, carnal reasoning as the best way to go and the best way to live.

Human reasoning is what started all of the sorrow, suffering and the grief all of mankind have experienced since Adam, the first man, submitted to his own reasoning and ate the very fruit God told him not to eat.  He rejected the wisdom of God!  The Fall, the sin of Adam, came as a result of human reasoning.  And all sin today of every person on this planet comes from submitting themselves to their own understanding and forsaking the wisdom of God and so none of us can blame Adam for all committed the same sin more than once.

Gen 3:1-7 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. KJV

God would have revealed to Adam and Eve what they desired to know but human reasoning took over and cost Adam and Eve and all of mankind thereafter.

Human reasoning leads all of mankind down into the low level living and human reasoning being the primary way of finding truth and answers and which leads them away from God and revealed knowledge and the real truth and wisdom of God.

Human reasoning is dangerous because:

Says there is a God.

Makes man God.  It makes you the god of your life; you deciding the way you are going to live, think and act in any given situation.

Creates enmity against God, a strong hatred to God and God’s ways, God’s principles of how to live life (the higher life of the Spirit).

Eliminates the truth of God’s Word, God’s principles and God’s spiritual laws that would all bring blessing instead of the curse.

Destroys the possibility of miracles.  Miracles never come from human reasoning because miracles are of the spirit.

Makes the Word of God of no affect, influenced by a spirit of religion.

Regards divine healing and divine health and miracles as untruths, eliminates any assistance of God and assistance of angels, eliminates the Word of faith working in a person’s life because the Word is counted foolishness by human reasoning, eliminates all possibilities God declares are possibilities, eliminates the operation of the God kind of faith, reduces a person’s hope to only what naturally they could expect, have no understanding of the operation of the God kind of unconditional love and God’s joy unspeakable and full of glory and the peace of God that passes all human understanding, disregards or eliminates altogether God’s promises and the possibility of their fulfillment, keeps Christians from telling the truth because their thinking is that if it hurts me then I can tell a white lie and that’s okay for no one is going to look out after old number one but me, causes divorces with the reasoning there are irreconcilable differences, keeps fathers and mothers from taking their responsibilities as parents for their thoughts are selfish, causes parents to kill their children out of plain selfishness or self love with the reasoning the children are in my way of having a good life, causes all wars, causes politicians to lie in order to stay in office, causes national debt that can’t be paid and halts the real answers to eliminate debt, eliminates real answers to a nation, a whole society, a whole family and individuals.

Set up the Babylonian world system that eliminates the Blessing of God from working in a Christians life and they have to go and get a job rather than a Kingdom assignment that has provision with it and thereby have to work for a living, work to get the bills paid.

Prov 10:22 The blessing of the Lord — it makes [truly] rich, and He adds no sorrow with it [neither does toiling increase it].  AMP

Makes you come out of the rest of faith in God’s provision and sets you up for toiling in order to get your needs met in that Babylonian system where you work for a living, to get your needs met.

Keeps you in poverty, lack and debt mentality where you never see your way out.

Keeps you in the mentality that you have to struggle for things.

Keeps you from hearing and obeying the voice of God, the promptings of your spirit by the Holy Spirit.

Sets you up to be deceived.

Puts you in a place where you process in your mind, figure out what to do and that is toil, toiling that came with the Curse and therefore eliminates the blessing where everything is provided, even the wisdom of God what to do

Keeps you from the download of God’s wisdom of what to do in any situation.

Keeps prayers from being answered.

Nullifies your confessions of faith.

Keeps you from entering into the Promise Land of God’s promises for your human reasoning sees all the giants that will keep you out!

Keeps you from hearing the Holy Spirit, your Counselor.

Keeps angels from assisting you because you are speaking against the very Word of God that would put them to work for you.

Keeps you from obeying what God tells you to do, the proper actions of faith that bring real and lasting results.

Nullifies your hope, the God kind of hope where all things are possible.

Stops you from proceeding in faith!

Satan and demons will have access to your life through your reasoning and cause havoc in your life, confusion to the point you can’t make a decision and resulting in the enemy coming in, stealing, killing and destroying.

Causes Christians to make the Word of God of no affect, such as: healing passed away with the last Apostle, tongues is of the devil, God doesn’t heal everyone, God has chosen some people to go to Heaven and chosen some people to go to Hell, there are many ways to Heaven, marriage is not just between a woman and a man, abortion is a woman’s right, women should be seen but not heard, women are supposed to keep silent in the Church, God teaches us by putting sickness and disease on us, God put me in the hospital so I could testify to this person, God needed a little flower in his flower garden in heaven and that is why he took your loved one, tithing is not for today.

Destroys all faith in God, His Word and faith in Jesus’ redemptive work.

Just won’t be able to believe the Word of God.

Makes a person God in their life!

Creates the wrong conceptions that God helps those who help themselves, money is  the root of all evil, vows of poverty.

Examples in the Bible Where Human Reasoning Was Dangerous!:

Because of Human Reasoning Mankind Became Sinners & the Curse Took Over the Whole Earth & Lucifer Became the god of This World:

Gen 3:1-7 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. KJV

Human Reasoning Is Against the Will of God:

Gen 11:1-9 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. KJV

Human Reasoning Makes Christ’s Redemptive Work & God’s Grace of No Affect:

Gal 5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace. KJV

Human Reasoning Destroys People:

Hos 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, KJV

Human Reasoning Thinks It Has To Help God Out: 

Gen 16:1-4 Now Sarai Abram’s wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar.2 And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the LORD hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai.3 And Sarai Abram’s wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife.4 And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes. KJV

Human Reasoning Can’t Believe For Miracles or Produce Miracles:

Gen 18:9-15 And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent.10 And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him.11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.12 Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?13 And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?14 Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.15 Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh. KJV

John 6:8-9 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, saith unto him,9 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many? KJV    

Human Reasoning Believes God Will Not Meet Needs:

Ex 16:2-8 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness:3 And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger.4 Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.5 And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare that which they bring in; and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily.6 And Moses and Aaron said unto all the children of Israel, At even, then ye shall know that the LORD hath brought you out from the land of Egypt:7 And in the morning, then ye shall see the glory of the LORD; for that he heareth your murmurings against the LORD: and what are we, that ye murmur against us?8 And Moses said, This shall be, when the LORD shall give you in the evening flesh to eat, and in the morning bread to the full; for that the LORD heareth your murmurings which ye murmur against him: and what are we? your murmurings are not against us, but against the LORD. KJV

Human Reasoning Will Doubt God & His Word:

James 1:5-7 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.KJV

Human Reasoning Makes  Christians Unstable:

James 1:8  A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. KJV

Human Reasoning Opens the Door to the Enemy to Kill, Steal & Destroy:

Job 3:25-26 For the thing which I greatly fear comes upon me, and that of which I am afraid befalls me.26 I was not or am not at ease, nor had I or have I rest, nor was I or am I quiet, yet trouble came and still comes [upon me]. AMP

Human Reasoning Causes A Christian To Not Trust God or God’s Covenant Promises Even for Protection:

Ex 14:10-14 And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto the LORD.11 And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt?12 Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.13 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.14 The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace. KJV

Human Reasoning Causes a Christians to be Deceived and Leave Covenant Promises: 

Gen 37:31-35 And they took Joseph’s coat, and killed a kid of the goats, and dipped the coat in the blood;32 And they sent the coat of many colours, and they brought it to their father; and said, This have we found: know now whether it be thy son’s coat or no.33 And he knew it, and said, It is my son’s coat; an evil beast hath devoured him; Joseph is without doubt rent in pieces.34 And Jacob rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his loins, and mourned for his son many days.35 And all his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted; and he said, For I will go down into the grave unto my son mourning. Thus his father wept for him. KJV

(Jacob saw the evidence and through his human reasoning the devil and his sons deceived him and he left the covenant promise no children of his could be stolen from him.)

Have you been deceived by your reasoning into thinking the circumstantial evidence is more real than the promises of God to you?  Next time focus on the promises of God and not the circumstantial evidence that appears to be so real for faith is your evidence now.

What can we do to keep human reasoning under check of the spirit?  First, we must recognize how much of our thinking day to day is just human, natural thoughts and then have a desire to change.  Ask the Holy Spirit to show you just how much of your thinking is just natural.  Let Him know you want your spirit man to be dominate in your thought life and ways of doing things and ask Him for His help for He was sent to help you.  Then once He begins to show you the natural, carnal thoughts that need to be dealt with, obey His prompting, repent or turn from that by saying, “I am not subject to just natural, carnal thinking.  My desire is to please God and this does not please God.  I trust in the LORD with all of my heart; and I lean not unto my own understanding.  In all of my ways acknowledge him and he shall direct my paths.  I am not wise in my own eyes but I fear the LORD and depart from evil.  I submit myself to revelation knowledge, revealed knowledge by the Holy Spirit so that I walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit.  I am a son of God and therefore I am led by the Spirit of God.  I am spiritually minded and I experience life and peace which leads me to God’s wisdom which leads me to life abundant with all God answers.
