I. INTRODUCTION

A. I WANT YOU TO THINK ABOUT SOMETHING
THAT YOU HAVE DONE THAT REALLY MADE
YOU FEEL FOOLISH. SOMETHING YOU DID
THAT WAS ABSURD AND MADE YOU FEEL
EXTREMELY SILLY.

B. THE WORD FOOLISH IS A WORD WITH A
WIDE VARIETY 0F MEANINGS.

1. THE WORD CAN MEAN POOR
JUDGMENT AND UNWISE DECISIONS.

a. LAST WEEK IN TIME MAGAZINE
THERE WAS AN ARTICLE ON
CHRIS FARLEY, COMIC FROM
SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, WHO
WAS RECENTLY FOUND DEAD.
THE TITLE OF THE ARTICLE WAS

SCNEIDER ADDS, EVERYBODY

D. THE PREACHING OR MESSAGE OF THE
CROSS IS SILLY OR ABSURD TO THE WORLD.

1. IT WAS IN THE DAY IT WAS FIRST
