“Wise Guy, Eh?” (With apologies to the Three Stooges)
1 Corinthians 3: 18, 19a: “Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become foolish that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God.” Generally speaking, philosophy is the act of dancing away from God. The word means “love of wisdom”, but as James says, this wisdom is from below. There is, however, a wisdom from above; to seek this divine wisdom is to dance with God. And the beautiful part: in Christ, God dances with us.
