To me this verse means that a human hypothetical dog listed to the gospel ignores it and immediately returns to his old depraved ways.The pig listens to the Gospels absorbers it and mixes the whole lot in earthly depravity
What about the killing part? Doesn't the advice end with the pigs and dogs will eventually kill you? I'm pretty sure his statement was referring to unbelievers.
The funny part that I see is that it considers Christianity to be the wisdom that is getting abused, when I can find absolutely no wisdom in it. Not to mention Christianity didn't exist at the time the statement was made so therefore it must have been referring to some other "wisdom".
Or does it mean wisdom in general? That any time you have something worth saying, dogs and pigs will show up to kill you because the dog and the pig don't want to hear the truth?
So I say, I have even a better saying. There are no dogs, there are no pigs, just a bunch of people that have no idea what they are doing. Grasping at straws, they are the last who should be picking up the swords.
