The Foolishness of the Cross, Part 2

"The word of the cross, the very substance of the Christian gospel, is absolute madness to those who are perishing. It is irrationality. It is insanity. It makes no sense whatsoever. It is not just that this message is a little off balance; it is not simply that it is in need of a bit of polishing. It is sheer madness. And yet this message of the cross, for all its foolishness, is the very essence of our identity. This is who we are. It may be foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God."

nobody will say your cross is foolish simply because, it comes with a lot of freebies.

its like on the show with ellen degeneres. if she gives you a car for free, would you call her act foolish?

on the contrary, your cross is not foolish. your cross is enriching.

you still have no clue of the foolishness of the cross
