# 1. Wisdom...
Ability to critically engage with course materials.
Intellectual fortitude to examine your own views.
No super high IQ, nor academic degrees, not even life-
time of experience required.
Just hear us out to see how it works…
# 2. What is better than gold?
“For wisdom is better than jewels, and all that you may desire cannot compare with her.” (8:11)
“Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding.” (3:13)
# 3. What is wisdom?
“On the objective side, on the most elemental level it is the natural law, an all-embracing cosmic order, immanent in all existence, and by which everything is ruled and governed. Subjectively, it is the awareness of these universal, eternal norms and the ordering or one’s life and behaviour accordingly.” (Dr H D Hummel)
# 4. Why this wisdom?
What could we do about it?
# 5. Where does this wisdom come from?
There is a bit of
mystery, but … generally this project stems from three main roots:
 The Book that created the Western civilization – the Bible.
 The theological genius of Dr Martin Luther.
 The wonderful science of anthropology.
# 6. What are the goals of this project?
“A second [great commandment]
is this: “You shall love your neighbour as yourself.” (Matthew 22:37).
“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. […] In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (5:14,16)
# 7. A bit about the author.
This needs to be stated clearly, that this project is not about the author’s wisdom. He is simply a fellow student and a follower of the true Wisdom, who is a person, and whom the world knows as Jesus Christ.
