    Sermon Series (6 of 41):   
    More Sermon Details:   
    As the apostle Paul makes his plea for unity in the Corinthian church, in response to the reports from Chloe's household, he starts to give the underlying reasons for these factions. The first reason that many in the church were turning to their favorite celebrity, and away from the message of the Gospel, came from a misunderstanding of the source of the power of the Gospel. As a vestige of their pre-salvation, unrenewed understanding, they looked at the Gospel as a human system of philosophy or wisdom, and belittled the simple proclamation of the cross. In attempting to correct this false view, Paul contrasts worldly wisdom with divine wisdom, saying that human wisdom is defeated by the simple preaching of a message that the world counts as foolish. The Christian Gospel is not a philosophy to be discussed or debated ‚Äď it is rather the power and wisdom of God. It does not primarily appeal to the reason of man, but to something deeper within him; and as such, it is to be proclaimed and believed.
    But because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men (1 Cor 1:25), the apparent weakness of God in having his beloved Son hang on a tree is stronger and more effective than any sign or any human argument. What God did in a crucified Savior seems to be in direct contradiction to the human idea of power and success; however it accomplished what the greatest of human minds in the world have failed to achieve ‚Äď freedom from bondage, the salvation of Jew and Gentile alike, as evidenced by the countless number of lives changed by the power of God in the early church, and their union together in Christ.

    “ If there's only ONE sermon you should hear... ”
    We were unable to attend our regular church this Sunday past, due to (once again) a health issue, so we decided to listen to this sermon online. It had been a while since we'd tuned into Joe LoSardo, a man gifted with teaching like few others out there in Christendom. Wow. Joe, you hit hard, but it's God's word coming through you and your preaching - and it's a powerful message that everyone needs to hear - every Christian from every denomination. There is far too much 'designer Christianity' out there and the message of the cross is buried under it. This sermon delivers a death blow to the enemy's wiles as regards the foolishness of man and the powerlessness of much of today's religion. Joe's prose regarding the message of the cross near the sermon's end is something that should be transcribed and placed on a plaque to be hung every Christian's home, IMHO. If there's any sermon you should hear this year, this is it. Download it, burn it on a CD, share it with friends. Best to BOL & The LoSardo family, Martin & Nancy Markham, Ontario, Canada
