In order to reach and save the wicked human mind, the Almighty made available the Gospel of Salvation which is to be preached in all the world. To most people the Gospel of Salvation comes across as a farce; as a discourse of pure foolishness. But to some, to those who are called and believe, it is the "power of God unto salvation!" From the following texts, you can easily assess yourself and see in which camp you lie: with the foolish or with the wise.

THE GOSPEL OF SALVATIONThe world's population is basically foolish! People are not born wise. None of us (including myself) instinctively 'fears God.' In fact the very opposite is true. The human heart, yours, mine and everyone else's, is by nature corrupt! That's the stunning Scriptural verdict on the human heart (mind). It is deceitful and desperately wicked!
Jeremiah 17: 9: The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
1 Cor.1: 18: For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God...
23: But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock,
and unto the Greeks foolishness;
24: But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks,
Christ the power of God,
and the wisdom of God.
Rom: 1: 16: For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:
for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;
to the Jew first,
and also to the Greek.
