The real nature of Wisdom

Wisdom was passed down to us from various sources years and years ago. Wisdom was given to us in goodwill and good intention. ......

Yet all this is sometimes forgotten. Pieces of religious wisdom have lost their true meanings and have become labels, even pawns for exclusiveness. 'I am a such-and-such, you are a such-and-such, you can't use that because it is such-and-such....'

To accept this degredation, to accept the use of good things against our sense of loving kindness and respect for truth? I can't do it - it is against my priniciples of respect and universal love.
