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
