"For it is written:
'I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
and I bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent'
Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?"
1 Corinthians 1:19-20
Don't believe the "conventional wisdom" of men....they are made foolish every time that wisdom turns to dust in the light of God's word. More often than not, "conventional wisdom" is propaganda, and nothing more.
