For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish, foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.Corinthians 1:18

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.1 Corinthians 2:9
