It's Simple (1 Corinthians 1:17-29)Tommy Boring, February 4, 2015
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Wednesday service
The world has many ways to complicate things. We often look back and see or hear great speeches made in history that was made. The speeches, some with eloquent words and great wisdom from their authors. The message of Jesus Christ is not meant to be of great speeches or eloquent words. It's made for the simplest minded person can understand. The only thing that matters is the cross of Jesus Christ, the death of Jesus. Gal 6:14 There is nothing to boast about except the crucifixion of Christ. People will attend seminary schools to learn how to woo people with their speaking. The preaching of the cross is foolish to those that is lost, but to us that are saved we see it as the saving grace and good news. Church attendance will not get you to heaven. Being a good person will also not get you to heaven.

1 Corinthians 1:17-29
17For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. 18For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 19For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 22For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: 23But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; 24But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. 25Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. 26For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: 27But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 28And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: 29That no flesh should glory in his presence. (KJV)
