1 Corinthians 1:18

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing; but to us who are being saved the cross is the power of God.5 [Those who take up the inward cross of self-denial quickly experience the power of God to begin freeing them from sin. From the Word of the Lord within: "with the true gospel there is ample proof along the way."]

Philippians 3:18-19

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 18 For many walk, of whom I have often told you, and now tell you weeping, who are the enemies of the cross of Christ; [Because Christianity teaches there is no need take up the cross to destroy your selfish, sinful nature through the inward cross, they are truly enemies of the cross.]

 19 Their end is destruction, their God is their belly [appetites, lusts], and whose glory is their shame, who think on earthly things.4
