Mr. Worldly Wiseman is a character in John Bunyan’s classic allegory of the Christian life called The Pilgrim’s Progress. He counsels Christian, the main character, to distance himself from Evangelist by saying, “Avoid him for his counsel. There is not a more dangerous and troublesome way in the world than is that unto which he hath directed thee; and that thou shalt find if thou wilt be ruled by his counsel.”


Sound familiar? Mr. Worldly Wiseman appears in every generation, spewing vociferous warnings about the dangers of listening to Christians and their bigoted beliefs. 


The better wisdom says to stay away from Mr. Worldly Wiseman. Fortunately, you will not find a trace of him in God’s book of wisdom called Proverbs.
