Book: The Death of Expertise
The Death of Expertise: The Campaign Against Established Knowledge and Why it Matters by Tom Nichols
People are now exposed to more information than ever before, provided both by technology and by increasing access to every level of education. These societal gains, however, have also helped fuel a surge in narcissistic and misguided intellectual egalitarianism that has crippled informed debates on any number of issues.[reference article below]
Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him. (Proverbs 26:12)
Within the Christian Church everyone believes themselves to be the embodiment of facts and truth. In other words, the hunger for righteousness encounters a full belly of self-righteousness while the thirst for righteousness was replaced with the dry-whine of self-centeredness. Today’s church attenders make the grumblers that tormented Moses in their desert walk look like selfless do-gooders. Cultural Christianity has replaced Carried-Cross Christianity.
While God has not directed me to read the book, and He may later, the introduction below fine tunes the evil Jesus prophesied would come. The increase of evil happening today that is leeching out the selfless love of God from individual’s lives.
Bonus: Think once again jury duty in combo with the narcissistic King County Prosecutors of Washington State. The reader will quickly understand why Governor Jay Inslee, of Seattle, reflects these Prosecutors “So what” approach towards evidence of truth, facts and lawful laws.

You believe that there is one God. Good!
Even the demons believe that–and shudder. (James 2:19)
