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.

    1 Corinthians Chapter 1. I have been reading the Bible everyday without a miss for 1 straight year. And So far what I have come up with this. It doesn't matter what other people think about you! It's what God thinks about you! If we live by Gods laws then we are On God's good side. Gods has rules and laws they are all in His book!

    Truly the cross of Jesus Christ is foolishness to the one that is not of the household of Faith . They think it is totally absurb to believe in such a thing as a man to die for the sins of the world. Only because they have not believed in the message of the cross that was presented to them. The cross to me is my life giving force : without the cross of Jesus Christ I would be undone and on my way to Hell . Truly the cross is the power of God unto salvation to me !!!! Praise God for His Amazing Grace !!!

    What do I think of Corinthians 1, where you have Jews and Gentiles. There is your separation instead of being on one accord. God explains no one is better than the other. Those who seek wisdom and understanding let him hear.
