Two Wisdoms (48 min)

PART 1 – Michael Penfold contrasts the wisdom of men in their own self-improvement, with the wisdom of God in salvation. In the gospel, God has purposely done 3 very counter-intuitive things. First, He has designed a ‘foolish’ message. Second, He has saved a ‘foolish’ people; and third, He has used a ‘foolish’ method. And why has God so acted? To repudiate human wisdom and to humiliate human pride. This is the reasoning of Paul by the Spirit in 1 Corinthians 1:17-2:10, all of which has huge implications for us today (Message preached in Phoenix, AZ, in Dec 2012)
