EDUCATED BEYOND REAL INTELLIGENCE. It's true. Many people are highly educated and in their own eyes and the eyes of the world are extraordinarily wise. But yet they can't understand the reality and truth of a simple message that millions of people for 2000 years have understood with ease. That message is foolishness to them. What the world considers a good education, wisdom, and intelligence is not their problem. The problem is their lack of understanding what is really wise and what is foolish; what is God's power and what is their weakness; what is God's plan and what are the plans of men. God is able to confound and frustrate all who depend on man's definition of wisdom and intelligence while at the same time taking what seems foolish to man and exhibiting His mighty power to affect and change the destiny of all mankind.
God's Word explains it this way, "For the message of 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; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate,’” (1 Corinthians 1:18-19 NIV). I am thankful to be among those who believe in the "foolishness of the cross" and to have experienced the power of God that has saved my soul and delivered me from the foolishness of man. I appreciate those who have a good education and are intelligent and do good things for mankind but I appreciate God’s wisdom and power even more as He has made it possible for all to have eternal life through the message of the cross.
