Fountains Abbey Undercroft - Yorkshire Dales

Fountains Abbey Undercroft
Yorkshire Dales


'For the word of the cross is to those who are perishing foolishness, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the cleverness of the clever I will set aside." (Isaiah 29:14).

Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. 

For indeed Jews ask for signs, and Greeks search for wisdom;  but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness, but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.'    - I Corinthians 1:18-25



Have a blessed Lord's Day,

What a beautiful picture and lessons from the bible. Reminds me of the Jimmy Cliff song...the harder they come the harder they fall. that was something that my mother used to say to me often while i was growing up.

It's nice to see two great themes combined in one blog post. I've often wondered about the manner in which the last verse statement was made.
