The Scandal - 1 Cor 1:17-31 : Sam M

The importance of the Gospel message is not found in it delivery but in its content, the cross of Christ. The power and wisdom of God is the message of the cross. 

Through attempts to make the message of the cross culturally relevant, the message can be emptied of its power.  The cross is scandalous message and folly to unbelievers. A stumbling block. It must not be re-interpreted to suit our religious sensitivities. Our wisdom is a person and that person is the Lord Jesus Christ.
