Saved by an "m"
Some years ago a rather wealthy woman in England came into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. She made mention of a passage in Firstt Corinthians: Chapter One. She said she had saved by an "m."
For the message (logos) of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
For it is written:
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.
For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption— that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.” (1 Corinthians 1:19-27)

A wonderful Arab tour guide in Israel back in 2001 said to our group,
“You all know that money is a root of all evil and that money causes much suffering.
I want to help you. Just give me your money and I will suffer for you.”
