In the wisdom of God, the world by wisdom has not known God, God has been pleased by the foolishness of the preaching to save those that believe. (1 Corinthians 1:21 Darby)
This generation has been witnessing great advancement in the knowledge of men. Technological breakthroughs discovered a lot of things that men had wanted to explore from ages past. They have searched the heavens, the deep seas, and the vast lands to find answers as to the origin of things and power sustaining all things on earth. They are trying to find the elixir of life. They have formulated theories and philosophies for ages. They have tried to find the Creator, the Force behind all creations. They have found none. In order for them to promote their ideas, they have created their own gods. They still have not found the true Creator. Men are destined to fail in search of God because they do not want to hear and believe the Gospel of Christ. For them, it is all foolishness. But then, what is for them foolishness is the true wisdom, which reveals Jesus Christ as the one true God. Those who believe gain divine wisdom to lead them to the path of righteousness towards the heavenly kingdom.
