The Erudict and the Intellectual Document Transcript

  • 1. The Erudict and the Intellectual Erudition is not synonym of intellectuality So said INRI CRISTO: “At the eyes of my FATHER, LORD and GOD, intellectual is not merely the individual who coursed and graduated at the university, who studied years and years, read hundreds of books, dedicated his life to the scientific knowledge. Intellectual, at my FATHER’s eyes, is someone who improved the intellect. And the main quality on someone who improved the intellect is in the freedom of ratiocination, in the humility on recognizing when is wrong, in the sagacity to discern the right from the wrong, the reality from fantasy. It does not depend on having stepped into an academy. The intellectual may be a person of high academic instruction the same much as a simple hard-working peasant. The word “majored” is commonly used to designate someone who studied hard a determined field of human knowledge in university. However, if deeply analyzed, the behavior of most “majored” people makes this word have a very different meaning. Be “majored”, in this case, indicates that the individual accepted the academic halter, accepted to be molded by university. In other words, his ratiocination became conditioned to the limits of rationalism and the scientific method imposed by the academies. For this reason, at my FATHER’s eyes, those who majored in university and accepted to be molded by the patterns of the academy are gauged people, because they are limited to their narrowed and materialistic way of ratiocinating, except rare and brilliant examples. A young person who studied to become a doctor, when leaves the university, obtains the diploma, which in reality is just an authorization to empirically study Medicine, because only who knows Medicine in practice may be called a doctor. Except he uses his first patients as “guinea-pigs”, will not be really able to perform the job. The Law student, when leaves university and gets the diploma, receives authorization to use his first clients as “guinea-pigs”. Approximately ten years after obtaining the diploma will become a true attorney. An individual who declares having studied Sociology may only effectively become sociologist if he lives the reality of social corners, if closely witnesses the miseries, the suffering, the difficulties of people, otherwise will be a theoretical expert in books. My FATHER subjected me to study sociology in practice to provide that I could know the inner of human beings, the reasons of poverty, allowing the fulfillment of my mission. And so happens to all jobs. As I have said before, the intellectual does not necessarily emerge from an academy. Intellectual is that who develops the intellect, the intelligence, and mainly, who learns to use the intelligence in favor of himself and his fellows. Charles Darwin and Albert Einstein, for example, were true intellectuals, since they have transcended the yoke imposed by the chairs of universities. Both were enlightened men, inspired by GOD. They became scientists, experts in nature but they overcame the mold, the gauge imposed by men. On the other hand, there are those who negatively use the intelligence to plot wars, to build bombs, steal, kidnap, cheat, kill… Very truly I tell you: erudition is not synonym of intellectuality or wisdom. The wise is not erudite, and the erudite is not wise. The erudite is the individual who has read (more precisely swallowed) hundreds of books, encyclopedias, libraries… without discernment, without doing the separation of what is good from what is not good. He is the individual who dedicated his life just to accumulate more and more information, that most of times will not have any utility to the improvement of social welfare. He writes and speaks in a difficult language, inaccessible to the common citizen, understandable only for those who studied the same much as him. His speech, although pompous in the form, shows to be empty in its content, similarly to a woman beautiful outside, but empty inside. The erudite often ignores the most important item that demonstrates the evolutionary state of a human being: the simplicity, which is the last stage of wisdom. If his soul, his inner is analyzed, he truly has not improved the intellect, since many times he swallows the lies into a book (which are obviously disguised between some truths), only because the author showed a Phd title. It is very rare, said the LORD, to find an erudite intellectual. It was generalized to call intellectuals the people who pass through the gauge, who come out of the mold of academicism. However, there is a huge difference between being intellectual and merely a collector of
  • 2. titles. In my long march upon Earth I have observed many “intellectualoids” who did not have the talent to exercise their jobs, they only had a title, a certificate. There are people who obtain a certificate aiming only to escape from prison. In Brazil, for example, the criminals who pass through university, despite of committing many crimes, are not put into a common jail. I have known many attorneys who did not even know to write a petition, doctors who were intimidated to hold a scalpel and confessed to be afraid of seeing blood, since they just studied as an imposition from the family. I have seen dentists who studied dentistry with the only intention to enrich, and so on in all the fields, in all the jobs. The divine wisdom does not have preference for those who studied years and years in the academies of men, it does not manifest exclusively in the considered “wise”, the learned of the laws, the scholars, the collectors of titles. The titles are illusions created by men to deceive their own selves, they serve as a shield to hide the insecurity and frailty of the human being who is behind them (and that is the very reason that leads a “scholar” to invoke his titles). The intellectual diligently studies any book that is placed in front of him and does not get impressed by the titles of the author. When reading a book, the intellectual does not indiscriminately accept everything as many times behaves an erudite. He studies, discerningly analyzes everything, as I have taught you from the part of my FATHER in the Parable of the Diamonds, that means, he removes straw by straw in the barn, gathering diamond after diamond to form the crown of wisdom. The true intellectuality, through which wisdom manifests, may be found even in the simple speech of a peasant, in the sincerity of a child, in the indignation of the young people. That is how I teach my children from the part of the LORD. However, it does not mean that the LORD despises the academies. On the contrary, they are very important and fundamental for the social organization, providing instruction for those who are interested and therefore they are able to exercise their potentialities. Many times I have been invited to speak in the universities and realized how important they are. The pledge on studying and the thirst for knowledge are praiseworthy, since it is always kept in mind the origin and source of all knowledge and wisdom: GOD. The only and regrettable obstacle for the human beings is that, together the certificate, they receive and accept pride, negative felt that blocks the passage of wisdom and the divine light into the neuronal system. Pride, arrogance, self-exaltation impede the scholar from glimpse the subtlest and most precious details of nature (as in all rules, obviously there are exceptions). For this reason I have said when I was called Jesus: “Thanks I give you, oh FATHER, because you have hidden such things to the learned and the prudent and made them shown to the simple and the humble” (Matthew c.11 v.25). Be humble in the greatness and then you will be great in the humbleness, because humbleness, humility, the greatest of human virtues, is the precious key that dignifies the human being and provides him to know and comprehend the unfathomable mysteries of the divine law”.
