Christians Don’t Need The World’s Wisdom

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but it is God’s power to us who are being saved. For it is written: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and I will set aside the understanding of the experts. Where is the philosopher? Where is the scholar? Where is the debater of this age? Hasn’t God made the world’s wisdom foolish? For since, in God’s wisdom, the world did not know God through wisdom, God was pleased to save those who believe through the foolishness of the message preached. For the Jews ask for signs and the Greeks seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to the Jews and foolishness to the Gentiles. Yet to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is God’s power and God’s wisdom, because God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength. Brothers, consider your calling: Not many are wise from a human perspective, not many powerful, not many of noble birth. Instead, God has chosen what is foolish in the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen what is weak in the world to shame the strong. God has chosen what is insignificant and despised in the world — what is viewed as nothing — to bring to nothing what is viewed as something, so that no one can boast in His presence. But it is from Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who became God-given wisdom for us — our righteousness, sanctification, and redemption, in order that, as it is written: The one who boasts must boast in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 1:18-31)

So next time the self-proclaimed Atheist calls ya dumb, or “uneducated,” answer with, “Thank You, Jesus!”

Just Got Verbally Pistol-whipped By A Pack Of Atheists

Just got bombarded by mean-spirited self-proclaimed Atheists who said awful things to me because I’m a Christian, and I just want to thank Christ for my family in the faith. I love you all so much and your love for Christ encourages me all the more. The Word says to encourage each other daily, all the more as you see the Day drawing near, spurring one another on to good works and love. For these are the times prophesied by the Holy Spirit through Paul. That people won’t endure sound doctrine, but run aside to myths and will be lovers of themselves and haters of God. Let us not allow their hate to douse our fire of love. Let us bless our enemies and pray for those who abuse us physically and verbally. Let us love them despite their words and actions, testifying to God’s goodness in fear and humility, that they might be freed from Satan’s grip, and repent. Pray and keep moving. Though some of the things those people said were hurtful and brought on tears, I was singing praise after, reminded of all my Savior has done and how good His promises are and the wonderful hope that lies ahead for those of us who endure till the end. Thankful for you all, my brothers, and most of all for Jesus, and for His Holy Spirit who is my comforter.
