Wisdom more important than kindness

Web_OurView_YourView

Although I agree with T. I. Rubin (Cryptoquote puzzle, Thursday, Dec. 19) that kindness is a very important character trait, it is not “more important than wisdom,” and recognition of its importance is not “the beginning of wisdom.”

The Bible tells us that “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” (Proverbs 9:10, emphasis added.)

    You fear your lord because if you don't he'll flood your a$$ to the friggin depths! Then you'll get your kicks on the river styx! ;)

    Eva, you are absolutely right. Don't forget to add, "Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts."

    Eva, the Bible also says, " I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet." 1 Timothy 2:12

    Gosh, Josh, even feminist Camille Paglia agrees with you: A Feminist Defense of Masculine Virtues: The article says men's energy and enthusiasm inspires Ms Paglia and she adds, "If we had to go to war (it is) the men that would save the nation." She also wrote, "If Civilization had been left in female hands, we would still be living in grass huts." Camille Paglia is trying to tell us that there is a difference between men and women and that each should play to their strengths. Maybe God made men and women different on purpose... for a purpose. Search Camille Paglia and Wall Street Journal for the referenced article (as the DR won't let me post a link).

    I am not agreeing or disagreeing with the comment. I am just saying if she wants to live by the ways of the bible, she is not allowed to talk.

    Josh…You are taking content in the Epistle out of context. You are even out of context in you narrow mind of your feminist current time. Read the whole freaked chapter.
