In 1 Corinthians chapter 1, Paul argues that God's purposes in the world are accomplished “through the foolishness of the message preached.” The message that the cross of Jesus Christ saves those who believe–this is what is well-pleasing to God. There is no “gifted program” in heaven. There is no fast track. There is no special education class. When we get to heaven, we will have a perfected knowledge. We will no longer see though a glass darkly, but once glorified, we shall see him face to face. But until then, we have to recognize that God uses intelligence and wisdom, but only the intelligence that He has sanctified, and only the wisdom He himself gives. It is a counter-intuitive wisdom–a wisdom that runs entirely counter to the wisdom of the age.
