/EINPresswire.com/ It is amazing that the concept of emotional intelligence has been coined in this century while wisdom which is none other than emotional intelligence at its most developed stage has been with us since the ancient times. While wisdom has more or less been abandoned by main stream science and education; man has been pursuing emotional intelligence most vigorously. Having studied wisdom for the last 40 years I can clearly see that religion has a head start on wisdom, which means religion has a head start on both wisdom and emotional intelligence.
John 1
The Word Became Flesh
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3

John 1 is clearly declaring that God does not have his attributes and that God is his attributes. Thus God does not just have wisdom; God is wisdom.

God clearly says He made us in His own image. God’s image is also wisdom. Which means he made us innately wise. Our pure self was originally made wise.Thus to get back to our original self we have to become wisdom and not just have knowledge of wisdom.

God’s Spirit is also wisdom.

Galatians 5:22-23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control

This is a clear declaration that the attributes of wisdom are all a single fruit. Thus love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control are all made of the same single fruit! So when man has any one of these attributes man has them all. They all come in one single package. This fruit of the Spirit is wisdom.

John 3
6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit[b] gives birth to spirit.

Here Jesus is saying that the brain produces brain quality and the mind produces mind quality.

3 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.[a]”

Here Jesus is saying that what man needs is spiritual rebirth. He is alluding to psychoanalysis/psychiatry!

God and Jesus are both talking about the word being physically the same as the person. The Bible is saying that man should not just have the attributes of wisdom, man must be wisdom. Jesus is saying that man must become wisdom through spiritual rebirth.

So it is very clear that wisdom education is for not just having knowledge of wisdom it is about becoming wisdom.

Satan promised Eve that she would become as God, knowing good from evil, if she ate the fruit from the forbidden tree.

God has clearly said not to follow Satan. Here Satan is deceiving us by saying that just by knowing good and evil; man will become as God.

By believing that by having knowledge we will become as God is a false belief provided by Satan. Clearly having knowledge is the advice of Satan and becoming knowledge is the advice of God. But we pursue knowledge as the devil wants; specially the knowledge to have wisdom as opposed to becoming wisdom. No wonder look at the state of our lives for individuals, groups and countries. Even in regular education only when we become worthy of becoming a Dr. do we get a PhD!

And how do we pursue wisdom education? By seeking knowledge. As if by having knowledge we will become wise. So wisdom education is not about having the knowledge of good and evil; it is abut becoming just as God made Adam and Eve. It is about becoming wisdom! It is about being born again!It is about mind and brain therapy.

So knowledge is about learning good and evil or learning a trade etc. and wisdom is about becoming good.

It is intriguing that even today religion will not use the word emotional intelligence and science will not use the word wisdom!
