Interested in a positive proof example why our Nation is at risk or danger?
Did You Know?
Centuries ago, the Old French term jeu parti didn’t mean “danger” but rather “an alternative” or, literally, “a divided game.” That French expression was used for anything that represented an alternative viewpoint or gave two opposing viewpoints. “Jeu parti” passed into Anglo-French as juparti, and from there it was borrowed into Middle English and respelled “jeopardie.” At first, the English word was used to refer to the risks associated with alternative moves in the game of chess. Soon, however, the term came to be used more generally in the “risk” or “danger” sense that it has today. (Source Merriam-Webster)
The Purpose of This Post
Is to use the general term of jeopardy to provide a proof positive example of how great a risk or danger the USA is in because our education system teaches everything under the sun except wisdom.
for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her. (Proverb 8:11)
What’s My Point?
If you ever watched the TV game show Jeopardy, you certainly have to be amazed and impressed of the vast range of knowledge contestants have in order to answer a variety pf questions on a vast range of various topics.
However, the other day I was not only amazed, but saddened, when all three contestants, all with advanced scholarly degrees including teaching, could not answer correctly this one question.
That question was basically, “what was the name of the King visited by the Queen of Sheba.”
Then again, I should not be surprised after writing a novel about the visit and self-publishing it even though one kind publisher commented, “that although he read and enjoyed the novel, not many people would be interested in a contemporary application story about Ancient Wisdom sayings of the wise, their riddle, interests, philosophy, and times during their life, including a love story based on ancient myths and legends.
All being basically the same life experiences of every generation since then that validates King Solomons most recognized saying that there is nothing new under the sun, and what men have done before will be repeated in every new generation..
I have also written numerous posts on this blog to question why every subject under the sun is taught is schools except Wisdom.
I have also written numerous posts to attempt to promote school vouchers to allow parents to vet able to afford to send their children to private schools of their choice to be taught their religious values and beliefs.
In My Opinion
King Solomon wisdom is recorded in the Bible, yet any subject that is in the Bible may not be taught according to the Supreme Court interpretation of the First Amendment.
History has recorded that almost every generation repeats the same follies of previous generations. For example, just about every generation has experienced war.
Still I was amazed that all three scholarly Jeopardy contestants failed to identify King Solomon, renowned in history for his Wisdom, as being the King who the Queen of Sheba traveled thousands of miles with a treasure laden caravan to learn his Wisdom.
Sad that this example proves that the kind publisher was right. Also, sad that the motto of this blog is correct.
What the World need know in addition to love is Wisdom. We are the Masters of our own Disasters.

Will we ever wise up to the fact that if we do not teach Wissam to our children, many will repeat the same follies as every generation in past history has recorded.
Is having the ability to qualify to be a contestant on Jeopardy and have knowledge and understanding of numerous trivia and history make a person wise, regardless of how much money they win on Jeopardy?
Was King Solomon correct on his reasons why Wisdom for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her (Wisdom)?
Will you agree after reading the posts in the Source Links below about the need for school vouchers is valid to return choice for parents to teach their children their values for life instead of every subject “under the sun.” except Wisdom.
Will Wisdom, both practical and spiritual knowledge help a child avoid both unnessary sad experiences in the games of both chess and life?
Regards and goodwill blogging?
