People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 1:25


1Co 1:25 The foolishness of God. In one thing that men call foolishness, in Christ Crucified, there is greater wisdom than in all the philosophers, and though it seemed weakness of God to let Christ be crucified, yet the Crucified Savior is mightier than all the strength of men. If folly and weakness be of God, these will be wiser and stronger than men.

    Reading vs 21, I began to think what was that wisdom of God by which d world was supposed to know God as God? Then it dawned on me that d Bible was referring to d wisdom of creation. Romans Chp 1 says "Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.20 For the invisible things of him from d creation of the world are clearly seen". Evolution is satanic.
