“Wisdom from the Wise? I Don’t Think So!”
Wisdom 2: 10: “Let us oppress the righteous poor man; let us not spare the widow nor regard the gray hairs of the aged. But let our might be our law of right, for what is weak proves itself to be useless.” I guess things haven’t changed much in close to three millennia, have they? Many people still think this way, and call it wisdom. But Solomon, a truly smart guy, calls it unsound reasoning(v. 1). Blinded by wickedness (v. 21), those with such attitudes and actions end up as “dishonored corpses and an outrage among the dead” (4: 18). Doesn’t sound so wise after all, does it?
