Have the mind of Christ

God’s foolishness is greater than man’s wisdom

When the Holy Spirit lights up a passage of scripture for me I take note and hold it close

That is what He did this past hour for me with the 2nd chapter of St. Paul’s 1st letter to the Corinthians. May it minister to you as it did to me. ~TD


“And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.
God’s Wisdom Revealed by the Spirit
We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. However, as it is written:

‘What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived—
the things God has prepared for those who love him’

but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit.
The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words. The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments, for,

‘Who has known the mind of the Lord
so as to instruct him?’

But we have the mind of Christ.”
– 1 Corinthians 2

No you don’t. You don’t hold Christ’s spirit close. If you did you would not be so pro war. You clearly unequivocally despise Moslems and liberals and Obama — not that they are not seriously errant, but you give a pass to the cabal that is destroying all that is right and good and decent. You are a man of God of Christ only when it is convenient or serves your hateful point of view. You are actually a very bad man.

unknowable, but residing in me… untouchable, but surrounding me… invisible, but guiding me. Praise be the LORD for sending me this Comforter.

‘What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived—
the things God has prepared for those who love him’—
THAT IS AWESOME
Psalm 37
37 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
Psalm 40
4 Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

Proverbs 29:27 speaks to me. Let it sink in…
(HCSB) 27 An unjust man is detestable to the righteous, and one whose way is upright is detestable to the wicked.
Kind of explains our current regime.

Thank you for the post. Shortly before Jesus was to be sacrificed, he told his disciples to carry swords because he wouldn’t be on earth to protect them as he had been when he told them to carry next to nothing with them on a previous mission. Elsewhere, he told us that we are not good, “no man is good”, but he died to get us to the cross and keep us there. Art and anyone else, if you have trouble understanding the Bible, and Satan really doesn’t want you to understand it, do as TD suggested and ask God… Read more »

After many years of wasting my life, I have come to this conclusion: My mere reason alone tells me there MUST be an Intelligence behind creation, that this Universe did not and COULD NOT have created itself or come about by accident. (And looking at it on the micro level, a single human cell or strand of DNA demands the same claim). That being said, WHO is God, and IS HE hard to find? Oh I’ve believed in the existence of God my entire life, all right, but that alone does not suffice. (Especially as I have lived most of… Read more »

This post is Providential and perfect timing. It is confirmation on what has happened in my life in the past few days. Recently I read several posts from a blog by a pastor. He is a very good writer, but he is conformed to the world; he writes with great style—you could call it literary aesthetics, but he isn’t spiritual; he has the wisdom of the world, but not the wisdom of God. So the Lord told me to stop reading his posts. Thank you for posting this. I love how the Lord will confirm His word through different angles,… Read more »
