    the church also needs wisdom, right? so is there such a thing as a wise-fool?

    tim – I guess I’m not quite convinced that the church needs wisdom. It seems like most of the things Jesus did were foolish. And if Christians are trying to follow Christ, then they will do foolish things as well. I guess I’m not familiar with anything Jesus told his followers to do that require any wisdom.
