Faith Must Rest in the Adequacy of Christ 信心必须建基於基督的完備上“(1 Corinthians 哥林多前書 1:22-25)

Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling-block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.


Christianity does not need any help from science and philosophy which are more arrogant and bigoted than religion could ever possibly be, trying to brand evangelical Christians as bigots. Science tells us nothing about Jesus Christ, our Lord. Studying the philosophers’ may clarify our thinking, but it is not necessary to our salvation. Jesus said, “I am the Light that lights every man. I am the Bread that feeds every man. I am the One who came from the heart of the Father, and I am the Eternal Word which was in the beginning with God, and which was and is God, and that is who I am.” So, we are assured in the Word that it is Jesus only and He is enough! He is the Eternal Word, and so we must listen to Him!


Prayer: Father God, we thought we might be able to escape from personal or public responsibility if we were clever enough to cover up our wrong or the dark side of our heart. But we forget that there is nowhere we can go from your Spirit! With our responsible witness for Lord Jesus, may we boldly proclaim that the crucified Christ is the Wisdom and Power of God. Amen.
