1 Corinthians 1:18 tells us the message of the cross is “foolishness” to those who are perishing. Bub the Bible also teaches the fool is a person who says in their heart ‘there is no God.’ (Psalm 14:1) And we who share the gospel of salvation are increasingly seen as fools for our beliefs and our passion to see the lost come to saving faith in Jesus Christ.
Our special guest, Ray Comfort of Living Waters knows well the accusations of “fool” that the world throws at those who share the good news, and he has produced a movie about it titled “The Fool” and he joins us in the second segment to discuss his new movie. You’ll enjoy the story behind it!
Mike and David also look at the growing culture of death in our society in two articles. First, the seduction of cultural relativism and justifying murder (wait ’till you hear this), or perhaps we should call it human sacrifice. Then, we discuss – like mother like daughter – Chelsea Clinton justify abortion and claiming Roe v Wade helped women add 3.5 trillion dollars to the economy. Yes, she said that.
For the word of 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 cleverness of the clever I will set aside.”
20 Where is the wise man? 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 through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.
