Finding Standards

According to the gospels, the “illiterate” apostles need to step down, not up, to the level of philosophers who could not discover the truth without them.

They sat in the presence of the second person of the Holy Trinity and received the truth from Him, in statements, analogies, parables, actions, works, and deeds.

Then they were given the mind of Christ when He gave them His Holy Spirit. It was not their brilliance that gave them clarity, not their intellectual training.

Then why do we turn to the experts and not to the holy when we assess our schools using the standards of a secular, Nietzschean world.

I wonder about this from time to time.
