Hearts moved by excellence move away from the cross

People whose hearts are moved by earthly excellence tend to quickly move their hearts away from Jesus Christ and the Cross.

1 Corinthians 2

2 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.

2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
