LOOKING TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP JESUS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. 18 No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known].

Christ Crucified

1 Corinthians 1:23-24 (King James Version)
23But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
24But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

1 Corinthians 2
1And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.
2For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

1 Corinthians 15
1Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

May all those "clever" systems that find a way around these verses perish!

These are great verses, but wouldn't it be better to pray that those "clever" systems grow to understand their significance, rather than to ask that they perish?

I think God said that it is not His will that ANY should perish.

Personally, I think we need to pray for them and ask God, by the power of His Holy Spirit to do a work in their lives that will help them see the light.

Would that be a terrible thing?

Joe,
notice that I said "May all those "clever" systems...perish". Nowhere did I ask that the persons themselves perish.

Respectfully,
Mark

OK, brother...I got it.

I can pray with you that the "systems" fade into Never-Never Land.
