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.

    V. 18 (For unbelievers the preaching of the cross is foolishness and they will perish.) (For the saved; the preaching of the cross by true God fearing believers it is the power of God.)

    (1 Corinthians 1) This is the fruit of the well informed early Church . The Church at Corinth had the Jews who were superstitious, and the Gentiles with their sinfulness. This is what the Apostle Paul had to deal with. As if this wasn't enough, those false teachers stole the peace by undermining Paul's Apostolic influence. This breech is still effectively operating in The Church today. Amen gjp

    Our father have blessed us with his holy spirit. We should learn to give back to him and also thank him for what he have done for us. We all have sinned and that is why he loved us so early because he died for us all.
