“He [the Spirit of God] will certainly help us to ‘communicate’ the truth of God to other people, but he becomes our enemy the moment we attempt to modify the wisdom of God to fit the ‘cleverness’ of the twentieth century. The stern words of Paul have a peculiar aptness to the modern situation when he says, ‘The foolishness of God is wiser then men.’ (1 Cor. 1:25)”
