The Weakness & The Foolishness of God 1 CORINTHIANS 1:18-25

In verses 24-25 Paul makes two amazing statements.  He says:

The Cross of
Christ is the POWER of God and the WISDOM of God
. This foolish plan of God is wiser than the wisest of human plans, and God’s weakness is stronger than the greatest of human strength.

•  The FOOLISHNESS of God is WISER than the wisdom of the world

•  The WEAKNESS of God is STRONGER than the greatest human strength

A Scandal To The Religious & Stupidity To The Clever

Paul says that the death of Jesus Christ on a Roman cross at Calvary is:

•  A SCANDAL to the JEWS  because it offends their RELIGIOUS IDEAS

•  STUPIDITY to the GREEKS  because it offends their CLEVER IDEAS
