Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”; 20 and again, “The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.” 21 Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours: 22 whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas, or the world or life or death, or things present or things to come—all are yours. 23 And you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s. — 1 Corinthians 3:18-23.
Worldly wisdom is foolishness with God, and promotes men when God alone should be exalted. Paul tells the Corinthians not to concentrate on Paul, Apollos, or Cephas or anything else, except the fact that they belong to Christ, Who belongs to God.
