The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction!
(1 Corinthians 1:18 NLT)
The children of Abraham would not listen to the very words of God, delivered by human lips. For this reason, they persecuted the prophets. For this reason, they murdered the Son of God himself.
And for this reason, they sit stone-faced today through impassioned sermons that implore them to turn from their self-absorption and make God’s kingdom their top priority.
Their god is appetite; they think only about this life. They are headed for destruction. [Philippians 3:19]
