“Oh, the unspeakable greatness of that exchange,—the Sinless One is condemned, and he who is guilty goes free; the Blessing bears the curse, and the cursed is brought into blessing; the Life dies, and the dead live; the Glory is whelmed in darkness, and he who knew nothing but confusion of face is clothed with glory.” Trailady

1Cor. 1:18-31 Updated and amplified

The teaching of self-sacrificing love is laughed at by everyone who is lost;

But it is written by God, I will upturn the delusions of the so-called wise people, and will grind into powder all the misconceptions which the proud are broadcasting.

Where is the scientist? Where is the evolutionist? Where is the argumentative atheist of this world? Hasn’t God made foolishness the humanism of this generation?

Because after through the intelligence which God gave the world they convinced themselves that He did not exist, it pleased Him through the teaching of self-sacrificing love to rescue from hopelessness all who would trust in Him.

Because the religionists expect powerful supernatural manifestations, and the scientific community search endlessly for more data:

But we teach the self-sacrificing love of Jesus and its obligation for us to follow His example of self-forgetful love; which, to the spiritualistic religionist is an unexpected requirement of God, and to the secular atheist utter nonsense.

But to those who have been called out of the deluding confusion of the religionists and atheists, Christ and self-sacrificing love is the omnipotence of God and the omniscience of God.

Because the apparent foolishness of our Creator is smarter than the emboldened scientific community; and the laying down of His self to save us from our self is bigger and stronger than the proud self-made humanist and New Age fundamentalist.

For, dear brothers and sisters, you see how the Spirit calls everyone, how that not many geniuses, not many strong-willed, not many celebrities, has He called,

But, God has chosen the uneducated to overthrow the titled aristocracy, and He has chosen the easily intimidated and untalented to overcome those with great inherited natural ability;

And the filthy and hopeless homeless, and the detested alcoholics and addicts has God chosen, yes, even those whom the world considers worthless and less than invisible has He picked to bring down everyone who is exalted and praised.

So that no human should ever think to rival God.

But, from the abundance of His goodness, you are reconnected to Christ, whom, as a gift, God has given the human race to teach us true wisdom, to be the provision for our reconciliation with God and to clean up our lives, and, ultimately, to come and bring us to His home, that where They are we may be also.

That, as it is written, anyone who praises, let him praise our Creator and Redeemer.

I have liked your current post so much and how I wish so many other people could read it. The problem we have here is people believing in evolution and other sciences as to how the world begun and also making people think God is non-existent.
But its gracious to know that God exists and he made the uverse and we live because of him.
its because of His goodness that Christ came. We take this by faith not by science. It was nice I read this post. I will modify it to suit my people and present it on a radio Friday nite or Sunday morning.
What a pleasure for me to know this blog and be part of you brother
