“The wisdom of this world is foolishness to God” (3:19 NLT)
The verse has two equally valid meanings:
Religious values are different than society’s values. For example, religion cares about the pursuit of happiness, but most people care about the pursuit of money.
Sometimes, you are right, and God is wrong. However, God **hates** to admit God’s errors. In such situations, God will try a plethora of ways to wiggle out of acting responsibly. One example–as this verse indicates, God will blame your “lack of understanding”.
If you are self-confident, you should not compromise your position. God, though, can be an obnoxiously hard-headed mule. You may wait your entire lifetime without results.
