                The Intelligent One...

Itís good to be very intellectual, Iíve known a few who are.
       Itís much better then being common or simple! Yes, by far!
But the only problem with the intellectual ones Iíve known,
       is quite often they get caught up in a wisdom of their own.
Where the common one is more likely to follow the Lordís plan,
       quite often the intellectual one will follow an idea of man.

Iím amazed when I see an intellectual, traveling a strange road,
       thinking heís wiser because heís smarter, rejecting teachings of old.
The intellectual one, often called a free-thinker, can lead many astray,
       saying being religious is just being bound to an old superstitious way.
He has the intellect to blend what is popular with that which is right,
       compromising his spiritual honor and integrity and a future bright.

How utterly ironic that one could be too smart for his own good!
       Choosing status or free-thinking, instead of choosing as he should.
It seems easier for the common one to believe in, and accept God.
       And to him, a judgement day and a hereafter doesnít seem odd.
The common one seems more reserve in choices and things done.
       Which really makes me wonder ...whoís the more intelligent one.

   "Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight...
   When they are learned they think they are wise, and they harken not unto the counsel
   of God, for they set it aside, supposing they know of themselves, wherefore, their wisdom
   is foolishness and it profiteth them not. But to be learned is good if they hearken
   unto the counsels of God." Isaiah 5:21, 2nd Nephi 9:28,
