He’s qualified to comment, his opinions carry weight
Sought after for his knowledge by his peers,
He wears his title proudly, has a penchant for debate
Men’s accolades are music to his ears.

On campus he’s the expert every student freely quotes
His arguments entrench in unbelief
Through God-denying doctrines the isms he promotes
Make atheistic thoughts their proud motif.

How little does he know it, but The Expert calls him “fool!”
For saying in his heart there is no God;
Before the One Who made him, his conjecturing is drool,
His dogmas and his theses are a cod.

In wisdom God ensured it, that from fallen wisdom’s tree
The truth of God no man could ever know
Through faith in His provision at the tree of Calvary
Would streams of truth and knowledge freely flow.

To Greeks much foolish babble, to the Jews a stumbling stone
But to the called of Jesus, life and light;
To ‘foolish’ of the world God makes His perfect wisdom known—
The weakness of the cross displays His might.

God’s treasure trove of wisdom is all hid in Jesus Christ,
Don’t ever be deceived by empty words;
From here to everlasting will His grace and truth suffice
Which His Spirit by His power undergirds.

In Christ there are no experts, only foolish ones made wise
Who glory in the Lord for Whom we long,
Now looking for the day when fondest hopes are realized,
“Maranatha—Come Lord Jesus” is our song.
