1 Corinthians 1
20 Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world?
21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save
those who believe. 22 Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to
Gentiles, 24 but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 For the foolishness of God is
wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.
26 Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not
many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the
strong. 28 God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29 so that
no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness,
holiness and redemption. 31 Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”
2)they inflict humanity with it crushing the most beautiful thing there is...an open mind
If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you
3)politely ask them to leave me alone with their bs
3 Then Jesus told them this parable: 4 “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open
country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? 5 And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6 and goes home. Then he calls his
friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ 7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more
rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
