Wisdom Of The Ages

“Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.”

James 3:13-17

    Demons will always put you in the center of the world. He will make you think that it is all about you.

    It’s not all about us, it’s all about Christ. John the Baptist said it best, “He [Jesus] must increase, but I must decrease.” -John 3:30

    1. A to the men! ヅ

      Was explaining to my son about the “wisdom” that emphasizes on pointing out other people and their being born to privilege. Such is a mindset rooted on envy. It is alarming it is the prevalent mindset of the future generation.

      We cannot enforce our beliefs on people. That is the epitome of Fascism. Ironically, those who forcibly enforce “equity” through big government become what they despise. That kind of “wisdom” is far from being impartial.
