'Foolishness' in the Bible
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but it is God’s power to us who are being saved.
For since, in God’s wisdom, the world did not know God through wisdom, God was pleased to save those who believe through the foolishness of the message preached.
but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to the Jews and foolishness to the Gentiles.
because God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.
But the unbeliever does not welcome what comes from God’s Spirit, because it is foolishness to him; he is not able to understand it since it is evaluated spiritually.
