Today while I was at school... I was told by a few people how they told others to go to me for questions or comments or advice or something because to them I'm a "wise" person?

I would say, I consider my dad the wisest person I know not just because he's my dad or my pastor but because he just IS. I would say if it wasn't for God giving me the dad I have I probably would not be claimed a person to be wise.

On DDO, I would consider a few people to be wise just from things I've read by them and what they share with me.

So who do you perceive as wise? Could be anyone.. In your life, DDO, school, church, work? Anywhere but who do you consider to be wise? And why do you consider them to be wise? :)
Better than deserved, as ALWAYS.

"Suffering is unimaginably confusing, but it's a way to be drawn closer to God" ~Me

I'd hate to be a debbie downer, but someone had to say it, right?

"A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool." -- William Shakespeare

It's a bit of a paradox, depending on how you look at it, but nevertheless, provides a summation of subjective "wisdom."

Yeah.... Figured as much... I don't perceive him to be wise.. But he's got some type of knowledge of something.

I consider me wise :3 I'm my best adviser.

I don't have a person I can go to for advise outside DDO.

Oh god first TUF calls me a genius and now you call me wise. I can't handle this and I vehemently disagree with yer claim, sir. I'm seriously just a guy (who in most respects would qualify as below average) who's read a bit.

Nope. Only experience dictates someone to be wise.

Thats sweet. However, the scriptures dont make you wise. I find some of it it be false.

On DDO, I would consider a few people to be wise just from things I've read by them and what they share with me.

Big mistake.

So who do you perceive as wise? Could be anyone.. In your life, DDO, school, church, work? Anywhere but who do you consider to be wise? And why do you consider them to be wise? :)

Not really. They have only experience. No one can truly be wise.

I would say, I consider my dad the wisest person I know not just because he's my dad or my pastor but because he just IS. I would say if it wasn't for God giving me the dad I have I probably would not be claimed a person to be wise.

On DDO, I would consider a few people to be wise just from things I've read by them and what they share with me.

So who do you perceive as wise? Could be anyone.. In your life, DDO, school, church, work? Anywhere but who do you consider to be wise? And why do you consider them to be wise? :)

Two thoughts/saying coming to mind about wise people.......

1) Wisdom is realizing how little you know
2) A smart person has the answers, a wise person knows which questions to ask

And....the last two guys tried to one-up me on nihilistic false humility. That was intended to be a one-time thing, darn it. It doesn't work more than once.

Nope. Only experience dictates someone to be wise.
I agree.

Thats sweet. However, the scriptures dont make you wise. I find some of it it be false.
That's your opinion.

Big mistake.
Could be, but if I'm careful who I talk to and listen (read) to. Discernment dear.

So who do you perceive as wise? Could be anyone.. In your life, DDO, school, church, work? Anywhere but who do you consider to be wise? And why do you consider them to be wise? :)

Not really. They have only experience. No one can truly be wise.

Again, that's your opinion.

Precisely!!

Very exact! I couldn't agree more with your thoughts.

Hmm. Wisdom is hard to define. It's a little different than intelligence, but a little bit the same, too. Wisdom includes both the ability of insight into things and also the ability to make good decisions. And the ability to make good decisions is, in part, dependent on having insight into things. A lot of people know the best course of action but choose not to take it anyway. I don't think I should consider them wise.

I don't know a whole lot of people I would really consider wise, but that might just be because I think of wisdom as too much of a Gandalf type thing--that kind of wisdom no mortal really has.

But I guess the closest to it I know of it my oldest brother, Joe, as well as Greg Koukl and Amy Hall of Stand to Reason. They are all three intelligent, but they're not JUST intelligent. They also know how to pick their battles, they have good people skills, and basically they know how to use their abilities. They seem to have just the right amount of cautiousness about life--neither being rash and making stupid or hasty decisions, nor being cowards and missing out on life and opportunities.

I know this will get a bunch of panties in a bunch but here it goes. Generally speaking, older people are wiser than young people. Now I will say it a different way "NOT ALL" but most older people are wiser than young people. "You have to be young and stupid, to be old and wise." "You can not be wise without first being ignorant and presumptuous."

Now ducks his head to avoid the the rocks being thrown from every direction! LOL
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%
