1 Corinthians 1:18-29 (NET) For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
For it is written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and I will thwart the cleverness of the intelligent.”
Where is the wise man? Where is the expert in the Mosaic law? Where is the debater of this age? Has God not made the wisdom of the world foolish?
For since in the wisdom of God the world by its wisdom did not know God, God was pleased to save those who believe by the foolishness of preaching.
For Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks ask for wisdom,
but we preach about a crucified Christ, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles.
But to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God.
For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.
Think about the circumstances of your call, brothers and sisters. Not many were wise by human standards, not many were powerful, not many were born to a privileged position.
But God chose what the world thinks foolish to shame the wise, and God chose what the world thinks weak to shame the strong.
God chose what is low and despised in the world, what is regarded as nothing, to set aside what is regarded as something,
so that no one can boast in his presence.
