foolishness.
unto.
 That the Son of God should stoop not merely to the nature of man but to the death of the cross, and this in atonement for man to God as well as in rejection of God by man, seems the depth of folly to those who, ignorant of their own sin-fullness and of the holiness of God, must needs perish, living and dying as they are. (Notes on 1 Corinthians 1:10-16 by W. Kelly)

WK Translation Notes

a
are to be saved: Again in verse 18 the Company [of Revisers of 1881] gives us "are being saved" from not bearing in mind that the present participle may be, and often is, employed to present a class stamped with the character of salvation, rather than the process or fact going on....They forget the absolute present, which this must be, not an actual present, as already there. (Bible Treasury 13:365)
are to be saved: The reader is referred to the remarks on Acts 2:47 for a solution to the difficulty in the right construing of the absolute usage of the present participle here and elsewhere. The Revisers by keeping to its temporal force introduce confusion into the truth by setting one scripture against another; the Americans [correctors of the RV] do not sufficiently guard themselves against confusion of the tenses, though their version may be justified and explained. But what is already said may suffice. Those who affect greater precision than the Authorized Version here have slipped into error through narrow views of the Greek, in aid of unsound doctrine. (Bible Treasury 14:367)
are to be saved: [See note to Acts 2:47]
