It does seem people with education tend to look at christians like they are fooey. Things people learn in college seems to contradict christianity.

The Apostle Paul was highly educated as well, but said (Phil. 3:8)

Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ

But education or none, every life experience is used by God for His Glory. So don't stereotype the highly-educated and belittle their faith-worthiness, because it insults God's special providence for each person.

"How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how will they believe in him of whom they have not heard? Therefore faith from hearing, and the hearing through a word of God. Study to show yourself honorable to God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, dividing the word of truth justly." Romans 10:14,17; II Timothy 2:15.

Part# two-This man has experienced a Holy Spirit explosion within himself, he had never experienced any discernment before,but suddenly now has an abundance of discernment. For example, recently in a church a pastor who was not talking to us was seen, and this man turns to me and says I have a bad, dark, uneasy, feeling about this man. I want to ask the Christian reader is not this very interesting? Comments

PART# 1-This question was prompted because I'm presently dealing with a highly educated person who is making great progress in Soulwinning.(He has led something like 80 people to the Lord as of today, in the last four weeks) and listening to him I often hear him say, well I can't believe I said that , after witnessesing to someone. He recognizes that what he is saying goes against what he has been taught, however he also recognizes that it is the Holy Spirit that is giving him the Soulwinning thoughts.

Actually, God's Word says in 1 Corinthians 1:26 that "not many wise according to the flesh ... are called". Verse 27 says that God has chosen the weak and foolish things of this world to put to shame the wise. I used to cry reading that knowing that it was me that the Lord was talking of.

Education has nothing to do with salvation. Salvation is entirely of the Lord Jesus Christ and His finished work on the Cross in payment for sin. Salvation comes by faith, not education. Weird question.

I Cor. 2:4-5 " and my message and preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power so that your faith should not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God."
Highly educated people may have more difficulty with Christianity. They know the arguments against it. They've often been taught to think critically and cynically. They can't and shouldn't abandon their education, but "simple faith" doesn't come easy.

education,??? maybe revelation and salvation. or knowledge and salvation.spiritual knowledge and salvation.theres highly educated people with no knowledge of salvation.

This scripture just about says it all for me: 2 Timothy 3:15 - And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

Luke 1:77 - To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins,

#2 We find the relationship between salvation and education in three actions outlined in the New Testament; Ask, Seek & Knock. Salvation is repentance and asking God for forgiveness. We than seek His righteousness; this is the education part. After we have asked and seeked it is than time to knock if we have been faithful in our asking and seeking than when we knock it shall be opened to us.

Well we know from scripture that salvation is a gift. Education, of course, comes through reading the bible, prayer, meditation and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. We cannot have education in the Spirit before we receive salvation. "The ways of the Spirit are foolishness to the flesh."

I'm not too sure what you mean by this, mima.

Are you asking if there is an inverse ration between being a fundamentalist (popularly conceived) and having a PhD?

Please elaborate.
