Sunday Blasphemy: Christianity is foolishness
For this week’s Sunday blasphemy, I only need to point out what the Bible says about the message of Christianity.
Christianity is foolish and unreasonable, even according to “St.” Paul himself. This is what religion does to reason. Yes, lip service is given to reason until it veers away from the dogma, then it suddenly is not good enough and faith must step in. How very convenient for them not to have to actually make sense of the things they are claiming?
1 Corinthians 1
1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
1:19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
1:20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
“Reason is the greatest enemy that faith has; it never comes to the aid of spiritual things, but—more frequently than not—struggles against the divine Word, treating with contempt all that emanates from God.” -Martin Luther
