1 Corinthians 1:26-29
I Corinthians 1:26 Look at your calling, brothers, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble.
I Corinthians 1:27 But Elohim has chosen the foolish matters of the world to put to shame the wise, and Elohim has chosen the weak of the world to put to shame the strong.

Let us just be thankful that there is only one eternal truth and way for all mankind.
John 14:6 Elohim said to him, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Most of mankind has rejected Him and His truth.
John 17:17 Set them apart in Your truth – Your Word is truth.
The majority of people who read this book are too self-indulgent, self-centered, and not really Elohim-centered enough to surrender themselves to the will of their Creator.
