1 Corinthians 1:20-21
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.
The world is looking for signs; is waiting for a new drug; and some are researching tirelessly to come out with a new solution to sin and it\’s side-effects (depression and loneliness being numbers one and two on the list).
In their foolishness (in the eyes of God) or wisdom (in their own eyes) they call it is human nature. They tell us we were born to do the things we do not want to do; and that we will forever be like this. They tell us all we have to do is to deal with our actions and try to control our emotions et ceterra. Does this work or has this worked? NO or course not.
Is this the cause of the countless suicide cases we hear of?
Is this the reason why many people are depressed, and are struggling hard to be happy?
Is this why people are living empty lives, and still hoping or waiting for that \”magic bullet\” that can save them? Yes, this is the \”wisdom\” of the world.
In the wisdom of God and what looks like foolishness to a blinded person( 2 Cor 4:4), the message of salvation and the things of God are the only solution. This \”simplicity\” makes it look some what foolish to someone waiting for some new drug or technology that can take sin and it\’s side effects away.
This is why God said;
18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise (1 Corinthians 3:18).
