Did not reach the silent zone
The state of awe
Christians are ridiculed by those who pretend to be cultural and ridiculed that Christians are a group of foolish people. This is the normal state of human society, the normal state of human nature, the normal state of thought, and the normal state of history. This has been the case since the beginning, it is also the same now, and even more so in the future. And this normality is where our Christian strength lies, where our happiness lies.
Let the dead bury the dead, let the foolish people warm each other. We put on the cross of Christ and go far away to pass the word of God.
For those who are in a state of death and destruction, the message of the cross is foolish and ridiculous; but for those of us who exist, the message of the cross is God’s saving power.
Because the Bible says so, I want to destroy the wisdom of wise people, and I want to defeat the wisdom of wise people. Where are the wise people in this era? Where are the scholars? Where are the philosophers of this era? In the sense of God’s wisdom, the world has long ignored God by relying on their wisdom.
The Jews thirst for miracles, and the Greeks seek wisdom. The methodology of Christianity is not seeking new things, but returning to the Bible. Because the Bible begins by saying that in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. This is the ultimate. Only when a person asks the question to this point can he truly return to his hometown.
Christianity opposes anything that appears in a new name. It is not that we reject new things, but we believe that there is nothing new under the sun. New things in any sense of mankind are under the order created by God, so there is no new meaning at all. Any so-called creation and invention based on the imagination of new things, if you lose the awe of God’s creation order, then this new thing will surely bring lingering suffering and even devastating blows to mankind.
