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.

    Folks,

    All I can say, is halleluiah! There will never be a soldier, like KING JESUS. I also, thank the Jewish people, for being a vessel. I will never understand, why anyone will not accept the offer of grace that was given to us by the this wonderful warrior. GOD BLESS

    The Law was made for the Jews, to show them that they are sinners. They had to follow the Law and do animal sacrifice to cover there sins for Salvation in the Old Testament. Believing and faith is the same in the Old testament and New testament. But Salvation is different, we are save by grace by faith in Jesus Christ plus nothing. Law, repentance, baptizing, tongues, works, will not save. Free .
