Piety and wisdom

On the sermon of «Philadelphia» church, Izhevsk, on March, 1st, pastor Yuri Baburin preached about piety. Bible calls Christ's coming a mystery of piety. People can look for ways to different human values - happiness or peace - but all these ways are wrong, because human's life has its end. Christ told about Himself: «I am the way and the truth and the life.» (John 14:6). If one says, His teaching is the truth, we also can not say it is right: Christ told about the truth, that is shown in Him. So, one needs to strive for fellowship with God to approach to the truth, our piety is a result of our relationships with Him.  

The bishop of Chelyabinsk area Aleksandr Nikolaev preached about wisdom. Experience and wisdom are not the same, the server noted. Wisdom speaks at the beginning of the way, before the trouble, experience speaks after it. The King Solomon prayed: «I am only a little child and do not how to carry out my duties... So give your servant a discerning heart». (1 Kings, chapter 3) After that, full of experience, the king writes: «How long will you who are simple love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge?» (Proverbs 1:22). Wisdom teaches us the right way, it teaches us not to injure our heart. The server reminds - there are wounds that will never be healed and called people to trust God's wisdom more than your own experience.
