The Thought Life
1 Corinthians 2:5-7 …your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.  Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:  But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
Faith: the Greek word, pistis (pis’-tis) translated from peitho; persuasion, i.e. credence; moral conviction (of religious truth, or the truthfulness of God or a religious teacher), especially reliance upon Christ for salvation; abstract constancy in such profession; by extensive the system of religious (Gospel) truth itself—assurance, belief, believe, faith, fidelity. Faith-filled words.
Princes: archon from the Greek archo; a first (in rank or power) – chief (ruler), magistrate, prince, ruler. — The wisdom of the “princes of our world” tells us to be “politically correct.” But we know it will come to nought! Where as God’s Word will live forever!
World: is translated from aei; properly an age; by extension perpetuity (also past); by implication the world.
My faith does not stand on the cleverness of men, but in the power of God. I speak wisdom among the spiritually mature. It is not what the world calls wisdom, nor by the “powers-that-be,” (who will soon be the powers that have been) but the wisdom of God.
