Dichotomies

For indeed Jews ask for signs and Greeks search for wisdom; 23 but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness, 24 but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.1 Corinthians 1:22–24

Paul sets out to explain the wisdom of God, comparing the saved and the unsaved, the Jew and the Greek, the wise and the foolish, the weak and the strong, the things that are and the things that are not. God has no patience with the wise, the mighty, the noble of this world, if they have not become foolish for him, weak for him, and debased for him. I wish to be all these lesser things so that I might constantly witness the power and wisdom of God in my life. He is wise who puts no stock in his own wisdom.

You'll find me in the far right hand corner of evangelical Christianity. I defy more categorization than that. Been studying the Word for 40 years and counting.
