FOR Christ did NOT send me to BAPTIZE, but to PREACH THE GOSPEL, not with words of wisdom, lest the message of CHRIST’S DEATH be emptied of its POWER.
For the preaching of CHRIST’S DEATH is FOOLISHNESS to those who are perishing, but to US who are being SAVED (1 Peter 1:22-23) it IS the POWER of GOD.
For it is Written: I WILL DESTROY the Wisdom of the Wise, and the Intelligence of the Intelligent, I WILL REJECT.
Where is the wise MAN? Where is the official transcriber? (SCRIBES) Where Is the PHILOSOPHER of this age ?
Has NOT GOD made FOOLISH the WISDOM of THIS WORLD? For since in the WISDOM of GOD, the World thru IT’S Wisdom DID NOT KNOW HIM, He has used OUR FOOLISH PREACHING to SAVE those who BELIEVE.
(1 CORINTHIANS 1:12-31)
