FOR THE MESSAGE OF THE CROSS IS FOOLISHNESS
TO THOSE WHO ARE PERISHING,
BUT TO US WHO ARE BEING SAVED
IT IS THE POWER OF GOD.
For it is written:
'I will Destroy the Wisdom of the Wise;
The Intelligence of the Intelligent I will frustrate.'
WHERE IS THE WISE MAN?
WHERE IS THE SCHOLAR?
WHERE IS THE PHILOSOPHER OF THIS AGE?
HAS NOT GOD MADE FOOLISH THE WISDOM OF THE WORLD?
For since in the Wisdom of God
The World through its Wisdom did not know Him,
God was Pleased through the Foolishness
Of what was Preached to Save those who believe.
(1 Corinthians 1:18-21)
