The more I read the Old Testament the more I am amazed at how consistent it is with the message of the New Testament. Over the last couple of weeks I have been reading through Proverbs, a book known for its claims on how pursuing God’s wisdom leads to a well ordered, and profitable life. Solomon, the author of most of the book of Proverbs, placed a high value on the pursuit of knowledge and wisdom. In fact in several places the two words seem to be used interchangeably. In our culture today there are people who put Christians down for their perceived lack of knowledge. To these people Christians do not have enough “evidence” or are maybe behind the curve on claims to truth. To them Christian beliefs are outdated, or do not apply to our modern culture. However the Bible claims the exact opposite.
