1 Corinthians 1:15-25 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
15 so that no one would say you were baptized ain my name. 16 Now I did baptize also the 1household of Stephanas; beyond that, I do not know whether I baptized any other. 17 2For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, 3not in bcleverness of speech, so that the cross of Christ would not be made void.

The Wisdom of God

18 For the word of the cross is 4foolishness to 5those who care perishing, but to us who dare being saved it is 6the power of God. 19 For it is written, "7I WILL DESTROY THE WISDOM OF THE WISE, AND THE CLEVERNESS OF THE CLEVER I WILL SET ASIDE." 20 8Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of 9this age? Has not God 10made foolish the wisdom of 11the world? 21 For since in the wisdom of God 12the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, 13God was well-pleased through the 14foolishness of the emessage preached to 15save those who believe. 22 For indeed 16Jews ask for fsigns and Greeks search for wisdom; 23 but we preach g17Christ crucified, 18to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles 19foolishness, 24 but to those who are 20the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ 21the power of God and 22the wisdom of God. 25 Because the 23foolishness of God is wiser than men, and 24the weakness of God is stronger than men.
