    Contributed by Darin Gary on Jan 23, 2013

    When others deliberately avoid preaching the Lord who planned & made Himself to be the sacrifical Lamb of God, we (as the Apostle Paul) PREACH CHRIST CRUCIFIED!

    We Preach Christ (1 Corinthians 1:21-24) “…in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. [21] For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; [23] but, we preach more

  • The M-Words: Miracle And Magic

    Contributed by Casey Campbell on Feb 23, 2013
    based on 4 ratings

  • Christ Crucified The Hope Of Glory

    Contributed by Rick Pendleton on Feb 7, 2013

    Paul said people in his day were offended by the preaching of the cross. They are today too.

    Christ Crucified 1 CORINTHIANS 1:22-24 "The Jews ask for a sign. " That request might be the deep yearning of the soul to know and touch God. Or it might be the thirst for entertainment and curiosity. Jesus had many to come to him for signs .. but he knew when to give them. In Luke 23, more

    based on 5 ratings

    In Paul's letter to the Corinthian believers, he reminds them that the philosophy that they brought with them into the church was no longer the philosophy that they were to live by. There was wisdom in the cross.
