Words of God regarding wisdom.
Angel
18 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. 19 For it is written,

“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart.”
20 Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, God decided, through the foolishness of our proclamation, to save those who believe. 22 For Jews demand signs and Greeks desire wisdom, 23 but we proclaim Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 24 but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 For God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.
26 Consider your own call, brothers and sisters:g]'>[g] not many of you were wise by human standards,h]'>[h] not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; 28 God chose what is low and despised in the world, things that are not, to reduce to nothing things that are, 29 so that no onei]'>[i] might boast in the presence of God. 30 He is the source of your life in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification and redemption, 31 in order that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast inj]'>[j] the Lord.”

Not trying to be contrary, but isn't this "pearls before swine"?

Um... What?!

"Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return, and we can, because the cosmos is also within us. We're made of star stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself." (Carl Sagan)

Dodgy Why? Do you fear the Word of God? How do YOU know there is not one person here that wants to know the truth? This is an atheist forum but people that arent atheists come here too. People searching for answers that havent closed their minds like you. If you dont like what I post then have me banned. Isnt that your way?

Smile So, are you saying that everyone on this site is a pig? How do you know that? Or is this another atheistic example of "I said it's a fact so it's a fact."

No, we don't ban for content, but we do ban for spamming.

If you make more threads that are nothing more than Bible quotes, I will judge it as spamming and ban you.

This kind of post is not a conversation starter or a debate, it is just spam.

You've come here with a lot of assumptions. For example, no that is not "our way", but we've seen it happen time and again on Christian forums. Also, Kingschosen is a Christian too. And you seem to assume that I'm not a pig. You do not know that. I may literally be a pig. Typing is difficult with hooves but I've gotten the hang of it over time.

If you open up by waving your bible in our faces like a crazed lunatic then you assume we haven't already had an abundance of that in our lives, and that you assume this time will be different.

I said it's a fact, so it's a fact. Wink
