The power of the cross is for the salvation of all men, in as much as we turn to the cross and receive the gift of salvation offered to us at the cross, turns the wisdom of all mankind on its head!The thought that our salvation can come from an act of treachery and execution on an instrument of punishment reserved for criminals and rebels is absolute folly to the intellect of any man. Paul reminds us that “the foolishness” of God (is there really any folly in God’s thinking?) is greater than the wisest of man’s greatest wisdom. The cross is the great equalizer of all men.
1 Corinthians 1:20
