After opening up our new study in 1st Corinthians last week, we move onto the second half of the first chapter. Verses 18-31 tackle the issues of wisdom and foolishness. Paul seems worried that in all of the attraction to fancy and sophisticated logic and philosophical arguing, the cross was being squeezed into the background and was barely visible!
Come and see how incredibly relevant this passage is today. In a day when people will do and try and believe almost anything–except Jesus crucified–Paul’s reasoning will resonate with us for sure.
In the end, we are left with only God to applaud. Wait until you see what Jesus provides that all the philosophy and psychology books in the world cannot give you. If you think you are a pretty wise guy or gal you will want to hear this truth shared through the apostle Paul to the church in Corinth.
