Proverbs 8:22 “The Lord possessed me at the beginning of his work, the first of his acts of old. … 30  then I was beside him, like a master workman, and I was daily his delight, rejoicing before him always,31 rejoicing in his inhabited world and delighting in the children of man.

箴言 8:22 「在耶和華造物的起頭,在太初萬物被造以前,就已經有我。 … 30 我就在祂身旁,做祂的工程師,天天成為祂的喜樂,終日在祂面前歡悅,31 在他的全地歡笑,喜愛住在人世間。

Having wisdom as referred to in Proverbs does not simply mean having an intelligent mind but wisdom here is a Person, One who was with God in the beginning, who “was beside [the Lord], like a master workman.” In 1 Corinthians 1:24, Christ is spoken of as “the power of God and the wisdom of God.” Therefore evolution is a direct attack on, and an insult to, the wisdom of God, Christ. It is because Christ is God’s master workman that we are able to learn and to study all subjects: math, science, biology, astronomy, geometry, etc. No wonder  when we leave God out of our learning that we become fools. In contrast, when we see Christ in all things, we become wiser and “increase in learning” (9:9) and our learning is full of delight and “rejoicing in his inhabited world and delighting in the children of man.” Christ not only is our Savior; He is also the wisdom foundational to our learning. Let us be reminded by Abraham Kuyper’s words: “In the total expanse of human life there is not a single square inch of which the Christ, who alone is sovereign, does not declare,’That is mine!’”

箴言中提到的智慧並不僅僅意味著擁有聰明的頭腦而是一個”位格”,智慧最初與上帝同在,“就在「上帝」身旁,做「上帝」的工程師”。在哥林多前書1:24中,基督被稱為“上帝的能力和上帝的智慧”。因此,進化論是對上帝和上帝的智慧, 基督的直接攻擊和侮辱。因為基督是上帝的總工程師,所以我們能夠學習和研究所有學科:數學,科學,生物學,天文學,幾何學等。難怪我們什麼時候把上帝從我們的學習中挪去 我們就成為愚頑人。相反的,當我們從萬事萬物中看到基督時,我們就會變得”越有智慧和增長學問”(9:9),而“在他的全地歡笑,喜愛住在人世間 。” 基督不僅是我們的救主。他也是我們學習基礎的智慧。亞伯拉罕·庫珀(Abraham Kuyper)的話提醒我們:“宇宙中沒有任何一個領域的一寸土地,耶穌基督不將祂的腳踏在其上,說:’這屬於我’ ”
