If all of our objections concerning the validity of Scripture and of who Christ claims that He is were answered according to our satisfaction, would we then be willing to accept Him into our hearts and lives? If enough time were spent to adequately address the perceived inconsistencies, the accuracy and inspiration of the biblical test, questions concerning translation errors, hypocrisy in the Church, a loving God vs. eternal separation, and literal vs. figurative interpretations, and in conclusion we discovered that Christ actually did pay the price for our sin, would we concede or just walk away?
Christ Crucified Is God’s Power and Wisdom
1st Corinthians 1:18-25 18 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. 19 For it is written:
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise;
the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.”
20 Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 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. 22 Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 24 but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.
