Paul, using his own situation warns preachers to remember, “Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the Gospel not with wisdom and eloquence, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power. (1 Cor. 1:17 NIV)
This begs two questions; 1, what is wisdom and eloquence and 2, what is the power of the Cross? Have we overridden this instruction with a keen diet of theological and PHD, interpretations designed to increase our own importance? Your views will be helpful.
