Proverbs 2:12-15 Wisdom’s Light Endures Forever
12 Wisdom will save you from evil people, from those whose words are twisted. 13 These men turn from the right way to walk down dark paths. 14 They take pleasure in doing wrong, and they enjoy the twisted ways of evil. 15 Their actions are crooked, and their ways are wrong.
Evil deeds and actions usually happen in the dark and the wisdom of God is as bright as midday sunlight. That is why most people don’t like to walk down dark alleys, or people with poor vision dont like driving at night. During Medieval times, the time of the Dark ages which caused such wisdom and knowledge was non-existent. Johannes Gutenberg’s inventor of the printing press between 1436-1439, was the beginning of the end of the Dark Ages. The Gutenberg Bible was the first mass printed book of God’s word and His wisdom into many Christian’s hands. Peter Schöffer took Gutenberg’s invention and printed the Psalter which is the book of Psalm. As more and more printed books of God’s word were being produced, His wisdom was taught and learned more and more. False church leaders wanted a stop God’s word from being made available and into common people’s hands, so that they could keep God’s wisdom to themselves. Pope Alexander VI (1492–1503) , excommunicated anyone who printed manuscripts without the church’s approval, but reformers like John Calvin, Martin and William Tyndale, obey God more the wicked man,and put out the gospel as much as possible. Pope Alexander VI, who tried to suppress God’s word, was the highest representative of the Roman Catholic Church, the Pope title is Vicarius Filii Dei which means (Latin: Vicar or Representative of the Son of God) , but Pope Alaxander VI lifestyle was far from the lifestyle of godly man. Alexander is remembered as being corrupt and worldly and a Pope with no spiritual life and fathered several children with a mistress, bribery, and scandalous sex. By King Solomon’s words of wisdom in Proverbs 2:12-15, Pope Alaxander VI and many others who try to suppress God’s word, are evil people who enjoy walking dark paths and also twist God’s word to support their corrupt actions. God bless you all, Jesus loves you and so do I . Samuel J Head .
Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes And clever in their own sight!
