A Verse for Meditation

Torah ScrollFor the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1 Corinthians 1:18

  • What is it about the cross that sounds like foolishness to people who do not know Christ?
  • What do you say to someone who says that Christ is a myth, just like the pagan gods?
  • The Jews who saw Jesus crucified scornfully demanded that he perform a miracle and climb down off the cross. Why did Christ go ahead and die when he knew they would think he had been defeated?
  • The most popular business you could start today would be one that promoted self-actualization: if you can dream it, then you can do it. How does the death and resurrection of Christ answer that allegation about human fulfillment?
