What is true wisdom?
Is it knowing the difference between right and wrong?
Adam and Eve wanted to become wise like God by knowing good and evil (Genesis 3). They wanted to be righteous by the knowledge of good and evil. They didn’t want the love of God but they wanted morality.
They wanted to be like God by morality (knowing good & evil).
Every religion in the world is based on this system of knowing good & evil.
The knowledge of good and evil exposes sin and does nothing to fix the problem.
The law made the Jews conscious of sin (Romans 3, Romans 7).
But Christ came to make a new way.
He died on the cross to take away our sins.
He made a new covenant where God no longer remembers our sins.
We have been made righteous by faith in Christ.
True wisdom is not about the righteousness of our works or our achievements.
Christ is our wisdom, righteousness, holiness, and redemption.
True wisdom is not the knowledge of right and wrong but it is Christ in us by faith.
Christ leads us by His wisdom.
1 Corinthians 1 “26 Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 31 Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”
