Who and where are the wisemen of the USA today?
A Chicago Tribune article titled: About Common Sense in Government, ended with this statement.
“All of these matters of public health reveal the disasters of public health that follow when common sense is ignored and ideology reigns.”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient wisdom proverb and Bible verses to the title question of who and where are the wiseman in the USA who understand and have the knowledge to guide citizens with common and sense and wisdom rather than foolish ideologies?
Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm. (Proverb 13:20)
What’s My Point?
The Bible makes numerous references to wiseman in ancient times. For example, the Three Wiseman, King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, The Book of Wisdom, etc.
As the above proverb advises, if we walk with the wise, we become wise, and if we choose to be companions of fools, we suffer harm.
My point is to agree with the article writer that instead of a government seems to be make choices based on ideologies rather than common sense and wisdom.
This begs the question who or where are the wisemen in the USA and where did they obtain their wisdom. This begs another Bible verse advice of warning to consider.
For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.” Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know Him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe.…(Corinthians 1:19-21)
In My Opinion
The Bible is a study of guidance based on wisdom and love based on religious beliefs.
Both wisdom and love are waning in the USA because religious education has been waning beginning in the last century.
In a previous post I touched on how a poor wiseman saved a city and was forgotten in time.
In another post I explained how trust in human government is folly compared to trust in our Creator.
The founders of the USA were the wiseman of past when the wrote the Constitution and beliefs of the Bible wisdom. However, they too were human and allowed slavery to continue at that time.
Sadly, in my opinion, if we do not return to allowing parents to choose to return to allow their religious values be taught as preference of human ideologies that have proven in history to fail, both wisdom and love will wane and the same outcomes will result in our Nation as every other failed Nation.

Which party ideologies are based on Biblical Wisdom and Love more so than the already proven failed ideologies of the past? Will you choose to walk with them when you vote in the 2020 election?
