Can a foolish person be saved even in their folly?
Also is it possible for a Christian to have foolish tendencies?
I think its evil to think worldly like that. But any biblical evidence for your claim?Hi Frank,
I think we Christians take ourselves a bit too seriously and sometimes we miss out on so much because of it. I think that God gave us all a sense of humour and it's lovely when we look back at some of the daft things that we have done and have a snigger to ourselves. I'm pretty sure that God has a wry smile to Himself at some of the daft scrapes that He has to rescue us from.
On the other side of the coin, I think He has a lot less time and patience with those who think they are wise and clever. Our problem is that we think we really smart but but the reality is not very flattering-
Isaiah 5:21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, And prudent in their own sight!
1 Corinthians 1:19 For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
And 1 Corinthians 3:18-19 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”;
Foolishness is good, especially if it increases our dependence upon our father for wisdom. I think it was Mark Twain that wrote, 'When I was twelve I realised my Dad knew absolutely nothing. When I'd reached twenty one I was impressed at how much he'd learnt'.
Hi Frank, good evening to you. I didn't really think that my post was that controversial and I'm not sure what bits you found evil or worldly? I made 3 bible references. I'm sorry if you took exception or found my post offensive.I think its evil to think worldly like that. But any biblical evidence for your claim?

Ooops sorry Frank, I think you've got the wrong end of the stick there.Mark twain saying that about his dad is controversial I think...
