1 Cor 1:18-25, (MKJV)
|18 ||For the preaching of the cross is foolishness to those being lost, but to us being saved, it is the power of God.|
|19 ||For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and I will set aside the understanding of the perceiving ones."|
|20 ||Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the lawyer of this world? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?|
|21 ||For since, in the wisdom of God, the world by wisdom did not know God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save those who believe.|
|22 ||For the Jews ask for a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom;|
|23 ||but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block, and to the Greeks foolishness.|
|24 ||But to them, the called-out ones, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God.|
|25 ||Because the foolish thing of God is wiser than men, and the weak thing of God is stronger than men.|
