1 Corinthians 3:18-23

"Do not deceive yourselves. If any one of you thinks he is wise by the standards of this age, he should become a "fool" so that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God's sight. As it is written : "He catches the wise in their craftiness" and again, "The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile." So then, no more boasting about men! All things are yours, whether Paul or Appolos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future - all are yours, and you are of Christ, and Christ is of God."

I'll be a FOOL for Christ!
Paul was NOT telling the Corinthian believers
NOT to pursue knowledge.
He was warning them that if worldly wisdom
holds them back from God,
it is not wisdom at all.
God's way of thinking is far more valuable,
even though it may seem foolish to the world.
