preachers, both

October 7, 2010

I was looking at Wisdom and The Adulteress in Proverbs as personifications of the Spirit of Truth and Spirit of Error.  It’s a pretty good study.

One thing that really struck me.  Both of them are evangelists.  Look at Proverbs 7:5-17 and Proverbs 8.  Neither of want to leave things as they are.  The Adulteress isn’t content to be rebellious and corrupt, she is actively looking for who she can pull down with her.

Wisdom as well.  She isn’t content with being good and virtuous; she’s actively looking for how she can improve the lives of the people around her.
