8 of the 10 highest IQ's on earth believe in God and 6 are Christians


Just the other day I was reading Act 4:13, which says,

“When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.”

Sometimes people use this verse to say, “people who believe in God are not very intelligent”.  If you look at this verse again, that is not really what it is saying.

The Sadducees that confronted Peter and John were a sect fulfilled various political, social, and religious roles, including maintaining the Temple.

The first thing to note is that the Sadducees were surprised by the courage of Peter and John.  Courage is a clear indication of intelligence.

The second thing is that the Sadducees realized that Peter and John were not educated by many years of studies like that were.  They were ordinary trade’s men. 

The third thing to note is that they were astonished by their intelligence and they took note that they were with Jesus – who was not just an ordinary man.  Jesus was known as perhaps the greatest teachers of the day.  Just a few years ago, Jesus taught the Sadducees in the Temple for three days when he was only 12 years old.  (Luke 2:41-48)

It turns out that many of the most intelligent people in the world are Christians.   The words of Christ are so much greater than years of education anywhere else. 

This is still true today.  Here is an article that shows that 8 of the 10 of the highest IQ's on earth believe in God and 6 are Christians.
