No Cause for Pride in the Wisdom of Man

"Let none of us be proud of, or trust in our own wisdom… Those that have been heightened with a conceit of their own cunning, have at last proved the greatest fools. God delights to make ‘foolish the wisdom of this world’ (1Corinthians 1:20). Thus God writ folly upon the crafty brains of Ahithophel, and simplicity upon the subtle projects of Herod against our Saviour; and the devil, the prince of carnal wisdom, was befooled into a furthering our redemption by his own projects to hinder it."
