“GOD’s stupidity is smarter than all of us?!”, Paul says.

Paul’s blasphemous statement

Let us read what Paul said in the Bible:

For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.  (From the NIV Bible, 1 Corinthians 1:25)”

Here are the countless English translations of this verse.  Literally, almost 100% of all of the English translations agree:

  1. Corinthians 1:25 (New International Version)
    25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.

    25[This is]
    because the foolish thing [that has its source in] God

    The foolish things of God
    are wiser than human wisdom. The weakness of God is stronger than human strength.

    The stupid things of GOD???
     

  15. 1 Corinthians 1:25 (Wycliffe New Testament)
    25
    For that that is folly thing of God
    , is wiser than men; and that that is the feeble thing of God [and that that is the
    sick thing, or frail, of God], is stronger than men.

    The folly things of GOD???
     

  16. 1 Corinthians 1:25 (New International Version – UK)
    25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.

    25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.

 

Let us analyze this foolish and blasphemous verse from Paul:

1-  Regardless of how smart and stupid GOD and us humans are, our intelligence will never reach even the stupidity of GOD!

2-  GOD is a fool.

3-  GOD is weak.

4-  Man is more foolish and weaker than GOD.

5-  The comparison itself is very insulting and degrading to GOD Almighty.  It is also limiting to Him since our finite and limited intelligence and strength were compared to His infinite Attributes.

Now before Christians jump and start telling us what Paul’s “real” intentions were, I want to eliminate this by telling them that Paul’s intentions are not relevant here, even though it is quite obvious that he did INSULT GOD Almighty!  So please, hold your horses, sit down. The reason why his intentions are irrelevant, even though he is clearly a blasphemer, is because:

1-  I am not discussing Paul’s human-words, but rather GOD Almighty’s supposed Divine Revelations!  I don’t care what humans say.  I care about what is supposed to be GOD Almighty’s Holy and Divine Revelations.

2-  The verse above is crystal clear that it is Paul’s stupidity that uttered such blasphemous words and not GOD Almighty’s Divine Inspirations!

So again, Paul and his intentions are irrelevant here.  It is the TEXT that is relevant, and whether or not the Bible is corrupt and altered by men.

GOD Almighty would never declare such utter nonsense!

To me, GOD Almighty would never say that He has stupidity and weakness in Him.  He would never declare that He is a fool! 

 

GOD Almighty in the Old Testament punishes to death those who curse His Holy Name:

Let us look at the following verses from the Bible’s Old Testament:

Leviticus 24:16
anyone who blasphemes the name of the LORD must be put to death. The entire assembly must stone him. Whether an alien or native-born, when he blasphemes the Name, he must be put to death.

Leviticus 22:32
Do not profane my holy name. I must be acknowledged as holy by the Israelites. I am the LORD, who makes you holy

Yet, Paul said that GOD Almighty is a fool and weak!  If cursing GOD Almighty’s Holy Name even in the absolute least was not big deal to GOD Almighty in the Bible, then GOD Almighty would not have ordered the killing of those who profane His Holy Name.  Paul clearly violated that Law in the Bible by calling GOD Almighty a fool and weak.

“Fool” is a forbidden word by Jesus!  Paul clearly contradicted that:

It is truly funny how the word “fool” is forbidden upon Christians to use it against each others, and yet, Paul used it on the Creator of the Universe Himself!

Let us look at what Jesus said:

“But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his brother, ‘Raca, ‘ is answerable to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.  (From the NIV Bible, Matthew 5:22)”

Because the word is just way too offensive in the middle east, Jesus himself forbade it upon his followers!  The verse is clearly saying that a Christian cannot call another Christian “stupid”, because the word is so offensive that it would bring the person closer to Hell Fire!  That is why Jesus made such a big deal out of the word “fool” or “stupid”, because it is just too serious.  Yet, Paul used it on GOD Almighty Himself!

 

 

The Noble Quran on Paul and his likes:

Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands, and then say:”This is from God,” to traffic with it for miserable price!- Woe to them for what their hands do write, and for the gain they make thereby.  (The Noble Quran, 2:79)”

Who can be more wicked than one who inventeth a lie against God, or saith, “I have received inspiration,” when he hath received none, or (again) who saith, “I can reveal the like of what God hath revealed”? If thou couldst but see how the wicked (do fare) in the flood of confusion at death! – the angels stretch forth their hands, (saying),”Yield up your souls: this day shall ye receive your reward,- a penalty of shame, for that ye used to tell lies against God, and scornfully to reject of His signs!”  (The Noble Quran, 6:93)”

 

Conclusion:

Calling GOD Almighty a “fool” and “weak” is clear blasphemy!  Anyone who argues against this becomes as blasphemous as Paul himself. 

The stupidity of GOD is smarter than all of us?!  Give me a break!!

Do we have to praise GOD Almighty through insulting Him??

“He is God, the Creator, the Evolver, the Bestower of Forms (or Colours). To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names: whatever is in the heavens and on earth, doth declare His Praises and Glory: and He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.  (The Noble Quran, 59:24)”

 

All Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone.  And may Allah Almighty send His Peace, Mercy and Blessings upon our Beloved and Blessed Prophets, Ameen.

 

And God knows best …

One Response to ““GOD’s stupidity is smarter than all of us?!”, Paul says.”

  1. thefuerstshallbelast Says:

    Paul is using a rhetorical device. He’s clearly not calling God ‘stupid’ or ‘foolish.’ As a good Jew/Christian he would know how dangerous a thing that it.

    The Corinthians think themselves to be wise. Paul is using a rhetorical device and stating that the absurd idea of God’s foolishness, which everyone knows is absurd, would still be wiser than human wisdom.

    So, again, this isn’t a problem – for no one in church history has understood this in a literal sense – for everyone acknowledges that God is not foolish.
