1 Corinthians
1:17-18

 

For Christ didn’t send me to baptize, but to preach the Good News—and not with clever speech, for fear that the cross of Christ would lose its power.

 

The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction! But we who are being saved know it is the very power of God.

 

(New Living Translation)
