No Christian thinks that the message of Christ is foolishness, nor do we think that the wisdom of men is really all that wise—in fact, we have a tendency to reject it. What the Bible shows is that we are susceptible to it. "Let him who thinks he stands take heed, lest he fall" (I Corinthians 10:12). We should not willingly put ourselves in the line of fire. None of us is strong enough to resist Satan as Jesus Christ did—it took Christ to defeat him! All that God asks us to do is resist him. If we do this, Christ will come to our aid and rebuke him. Never be deceived into believing that we can out-think, out-wit, out-subtle, or spiritually overcome Satan alone. His powers and "wisdom" would put us to shame.

The Wisdom of Men and Faith
Most of this world's holidays are based on fables, myths, and lies, while the Christian is commanded to worship God "in spirit and in truth." A true Christian does not lie and does not associate with lies, but seeks after truth in all aspects of life. If we live with a little lie now, then it is much easier to live with a worse lie later. God is emphatic on this point: A liar will not enter the Kingdom of God (Revelation 21:7-8).
