Baptists/Are you admitting that Christ is the Wisdom of God?

Question
Because Baptists reject the literal translation in the Book of Proverbs.  "By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth." Proverbs 8:16

"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6)

Wisdom and Wonderful Counseller.  The Prince of Peace and by ME princes rule. Maybe just maybe your religion is deceiving you and your family?

The Bible literal states "Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God 1 Cor: 1:24  and In Christ – Neither Male nor Female.  "there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus." Gal 3:28

Care to comment? This is when most baptists turn to enrage then change the subject and start attacking others they have no answers.  

Awaiting your reply.

Answer
Yes. I have no other choice because it is plain to see in 1 Cor 1:24. I was going to point out that Wisdom in Proverbs is referred to as SHE but your quote of Gal 3:28 says "there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus."  

The similarities between Prov 8:16 and Isa 9:6 are remarkable. By the Prince of Peace the princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth. On top of all that it would make sense that the Wonderful Counsellor would be the Wisdom of God. I think I understand mighty God in the sense that Jesus was given a position like that of moses. The LORD answered Moses, "I have made you a god to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron is your prophet."- Exodus 7:1 GWT

Looking up different translations gave me a meaning of John 1:1 that the Word can be a god or God in the sense of being the Word of God. What he says goes like that of moses.

And Jehovah said to Moses, See, I have made thee God to Pharaoh; and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet.- Exodus 7:1 Darby

Yahweh said to Moses, "Behold, I have made you as God to Pharaoh; and Aaron your brother shall be your prophet.- Exodus 7:1 WEB

And Jehovah said unto Moses, See, I have made thee as God to Pharaoh; and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet.- Exodus 7:1 ASV

I can answer questions about the Bible of all translations and the various theologies of it's passages. Experience in how the Baptist Religion was founded in it's infancy and how it has splintered into many sects of different theology. If you enjoy the deeper things of God. I would love the opportunity to share the meanings of the true scripture as the meanings are hidden from many. Teaching an eternal burning hell is to reject "that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures"-1 Cor 15:3. The Bible Literally teaches us that "death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them"-Revelation 20:13. This is truly a marvel and the gospel of Jesus Christ that hell gives up the dead to be Judged. Please note the last half of the scripture "they were judged every man according to their works." We would be in error to say works don't matter, if we are literally judged by them.

Experience

Intensive study of Biblical Christianity and where it got it's start. I've learned that being a KJV only can lead a person to being narrow minded and somewhat short sided to Christ's full message of Salvation. Sometimes comparing Bible translations actually leads to a far deeper understanding of God's Word. Punishment in hell after death is double jeopardy and unjust.

Organizations
Once Saved Always Saved is not a Biblical doctrine. Paul told Christians who had already accepted Christ to: “Keep working out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”— Philippians 2:12.

Education/Credentials
Baptist Sunday School and intense study of different translations. Studying several different translations gave me more understanding than reading KJV Only. Without grace who of us could get saved and stand before the throne of God? I believe that the antichrist has entered the church and leading many astray by the works of the flesh and an apostasy is now occurring among believers who through bad works are sinning their grace away. "Can it be that I have become your enemy for telling you the truth?"- Galatians 4:16
