1 Corinthians 2:6-16 Yet among the mature we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to pass away...
There are two kinds of wisdom--godly wisdom and worldly wisdom--and as Believers in Christ, we get the benefit of having God's wisdom. Here's what Paul tells us about godly wisdom in 1 Corinthians 2:6-16: that godly wisdom is not the same as worldly wisdom, that God's wisdom seems foolish to the world, and that God's wisdom is revealed to us through the Spirit so that we might understand. Paul then concludes with "for we have the mind of Christ" (vs. 16).
