I can't think of anything too great about it even though we give people entertainment awards for the shelf and wall and we give people courage awards for the shelf and wall to put up. We also give man intelligence awards to put up on the wall and shelf too. We gave humanitarian awards for the shelf and wall as well.

Despite all this being very Godly to do this is what the bible have to say about the wisdom of man really:

Isaiah 64:6---filthy rag wisdom of man
Hebrews 2:6--what's great to find in man
Psalms 144:3---what's great to find in man
Job 7:17-18--what's great to find in man
Psalms 8 or so--what's great to find in man
1 Cor. 13-----filthy wisdom rubbish even in our good without God.
1 Cor. 1:25---what's great about man even when they at their best
Jeremiah 9 or so---what's so great about the strength, wisdom and riches of man at all really.

People rather take room up a lot at libraries, schools and museums to learn and be more like man then God today.

No wonder people don't have a spiritual appetite for Matthew 4:4.

No wonder we live in a philosophical world too much.

No wonder 2 Timothy 3:16 is carnal legalism to people too much.

It's culturally acceptable to be perfectionist in carnal matters in the world
but if your a perfectionist with Christianity then your suppose to be an Adolf Hitler control freak on people or a person mentally insane and losing it. They say you ready for a mental hospital like the doctor a God over carnal spirits.

The bible did say he that gain his life in this world shall lose it and he that lose his life in this world shall gain it.

It say too let this mind be in you which also is in Jesus Christ.

This gain and lose thing talking about more then circumcision and the old law ordinances while you claim the atonement of Jesus.

Losing idealogy that's contrary to the mind of God or the Word of God is the loss for a real gain in Christ.

Losing philosophical wisdom that's contrary to the mind of God or Word of God is the loss for a real gain in Christ.

Losing common sense that's contrary to the mind of God or Word of God is the loss for a real gain in Christ.

Losing theological school wisdom that's contrary to the mind of God or Word of God is the loss for a real gain in Christ.

Losing grammar school wisdom that's contrary to the mind of God or Word of God is the loss for a real gain in Christ.

Losing college school wisdom that's contrary to the mind of God or Word of God is the loss for a real gain in Christ.

Losing corporate business wisdom that's contrary to the mind of God or Word of God is the loss for a real gain in Christ.

Losing political wisdom that's contrary to the mind of God or Word of God is the loss for a real gain in Christ.

Losing people popularity that's contrary to the mind of God or Word of God is the loss for a real gain in Christ.

Losing government wisdom that's contrary to the mind of God or Word of God is the loss for a real gain in Christ.

Losing big shot intellectual wisdom that's contrary to the mind of God or Word of God is the loss for a real gain in Christ.

Losing family popularity and brethren popularity that's contrary to the mind of God or Word of God is the loss for a real gain in Christ.

Losing country popularity that's contrary to the mind of God or Word of God is the loss for a real gain in Christ.

Losing religious popularity and tradition popularity that's contrary to the mind of God or Word of God is the loss for a real gain in Christ.

This press for the prize in Christ ---Phillipians 2:14 if my memory accurate is a perfectionist effort giving all you got in God.

You won't find a track runner trying to win a race with sandals on even though they running as fast as they can.

They not trying to win sweating only they getting water and even some gatorade drink advantage to come out winning.

You won't catch a track runner with pants and a sweater on cause they want every advantage to be body loose as possible.

Don't be surprise if they have sunglasses and special lenses better then that in their perfectionist effort to win the race.

Don't bet your life on a track runner being the most heavy person running.

The bible says to lay aside every weight and sin that does so easily beset us.

That's talking about effort and preparation to come out a winner in God.

Effort and preparation sound like a perfectionist gospel enough.

The bible says too to put on the whole armor of God---Ephesians 6.

After taking stuff off now it's bible time to put stuff on.

That again is effort and preparation with a perfectionist gospel enough.

No different then the track runner example in Phillipians 2:14 or so.

We see that a Christian is not an odd ball being a perfectionist like the world unless they operate in the perfectionalist wisdom of man that's contrary to the mind or Word of God talking.
