You can’t fix stupid. I know this, it’s not rocket science. I’ve re-learned this a million times on the internet, too. Try as you might, stupid is just an impenetrable wall that cannot be scaled. There are alligators in the bottem of that moat and people puring hot oil on you from the top. You can lead a horse to water but you just cannot hold their head down and force them to drink. Why not? I have no idea. It just is what it is. You can’t fix stupid.
But sometimes I think, what if Jesus Christ had said that? What if He had believed it? What if He had thrown in the towel? What if rather than saying, “my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt, “ what if instead He had said, “Father, I’m sorry, but you just can’t fix stupid?”
I think that would have been a totally valid response. I mean, there is peer reviewed, imperical, cross referenced data, that proves exactly that. People are stupid and you just can’t fix stupid. I can provide half a dozen links from peer reveiwed science papers right now, as well as many credentialed and heavily lettered references from experts, the Alphabet Name people who Know Things.
I’m telling you, there are none so stupid as those who Know Things.
You can’t fix stupid. Thankfully Jesus Christ never said those words, although I suspect He empathizes with them. He’s been watching the stupid for a long, long, time.
You just can’t fix stupid, but I know Someone who can, Someone who does, Someone who has done exactly that, every single day for thousands of years. He has been fixing the stupid since forever.
As for some of His followers and some of His detractors however, sometimes you just have to say, “Bless their hard little hearts” and than start singing, Nothing but the blood of Jesus…
