“20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: 23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness; 24 but unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men,” 1 Corinthians 1:20-25.
“There once was a man who thought he knew everything about Me. He studied and studied, and read many books about Me.
He delved into the mysteries of life and death. He studied about the early church fathers and chose to attempt his understanding of those issues that have divided Christians throughout the ages.
He delved into the deep things of God and chose to look to the writings of man rather than Me.
This man shut himself up in a garret all by himself, and through the years his only friends were the countless books that he had gathered over time. He seldom walked the streets, and kept to himself except to gather his food and pay his bills.
How many of you have shut yourselves up in a room, attempting to learn life’s mysteries and reading about how the sages and other wise men came to understand about these questions?
Would it not be best to learn from the author, the One who wrote the original book of life’s mysteries?
Would it not be best to learn about how He died and rose again?
You see, there are many men from the past who have written great books of learning, but in the end they died without hope in their earthly wisdom.”
