Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. 1 Corinthians 3:18-20
What is wrong with the world today? This is the question many people are asking, and the answer is actually very simple. The world is deceived! If you don’t believe me, all you have to do is take a look around the world, men believe they are now women, women now believe they are men, we normalized the killing of unborn children. How did the world get to this position? Because the world is deceived
Look at what the Apostle Paul says here “Let no man deceive himself, if any man among you seems to be wise in this world, let him become a fool” Where does true wisdom come from? Sure wisdom can be obtained from the world but is that wisdom actually true? This is the mistake most people make when searching for wisdom, they think if they go to the right school or read the correct books, they will obtain wisdom. However as the old saying goes “garbage in and garbage out” If your source of truth is corrupted, you are not obtaining true wisdom
Truth can only be found in God. Jesus Christ is the Truth (John 14:6) this is why the world hates him and killed him. Because without the source of truth, you can make anything become “your truth. This is why the world rejects the Bible, because it’s the written Word of God. If the world can eliminate the Bible, the truth, then it can make up its own subjective truth. And this is why we see the insanity in the world today, the world has rejected God, has rejected Christ, has rejected the Bible, therefore it’s left to its own depravity (Romans 1)
Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours; Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours; And ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s. 1 Corinthians 3:21-23
When people hear a great preacher , immediately they give him credit. They say this guy is really insightful or on point, but all glory and credit goes to God, right? That’s what Paul says here “therefor let no man glory or boast in men, for all things are yours (God)” We can not do anything on our own accord, we can’t be full of any wisdom without God. It’s only by the Holy Spirit that I can even write these words, I can’t take any credit for this, so why are you giving me any credit? All glory goes to God alone and not ourselves
It’s a humbling thing to understand this concept, but it should be our thought and direction in everything we do in life. True wisdom comes only from God alone, the wisdom of this world is foolishness. If you want true wisdom seek Jesus Christ , and the door shall be opened, Amen!
Perfectly put…things ring true when we all share in the one true teacher. The Holy Spirit.

Amen brother God bless you!
I totally agree with this post. The world is deceived and it’s hard to find true wisdom. We need to look to God for true wisdom and understanding. My question is, how can we recognize the difference between worldly wisdom and Godly wisdom?

Great question…true discernment can only come by the Holy Spirit…does the Truth line up with the Word of God? If not then it’s not truth..
God bless you sister!
