It is written: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and discard the intelligence of the intelligent. 1 Corinthians 1:19.
If you want to know what is just and unjust before God, the Holy Spirit's conclusion and judgment is this: Everything that reason judges before God is flesh and blood and is worthless. Everything that is innate to human beings and not born anew, must be utterly destroyed and killed, so that no one boasts about it nor relies upon that which the world regards as wisdom; concerning that about which everyone says it has been dealt with and done wisely or reasonably, is foolishness before God. In short, what it is useless and damned, unless it happens to be the fount and source from Christ the Lord and His Word and Spirit, in order that He teach it to us. If it does not come from that, it then most certainly is sheer blindness and nothing good. (Cf. 23. March.)
