1 Corinthians 2:5 (KJV 1900)
5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
How are we eternally saved and able to stand before God? By our faith. The Greek word is pistis and is translated belief, assurance; and carries the sense of putting your trust in something, in this case someone. It is not faith in the wisdom of men. This we can be sure of since, while man’s wisdom is helpful, it does not provide any power for us to stand before the Lord. We can only stand in the power of God. It is faith in the power of God, i.e, the cross of Christ that saves us.
