Eight Interesting Facts About Wisdom
Testing your wisdom.
One of the main reason why books are written is because the writers believe that they possessed knowledge and wisdom that they want to share with the world.
Some people believe that if something is recorded in a book then it is factual.
However, the serpent who was more cunning than all the beasts of the field, deceived and robbed mankind of their glorious relationship and position with God.
This cunning serpent inspired his prophets and servants to record his defiled wisdom on parchments and stones long before the people of God recorded His Word.
Unfortunately, when these ancient texts are unearthed many people regarded them as factual and wise.
Not everything that is old is wise and not every wisdom is factual.
