Church Discipline

| by | Scripture: 1 Corinthians 5:1-13 | Series:

Church discipline is a very unpopular subject in our modern “feel good” Christianity, but it is clearly taught in Scripture.

God’s Will Regarding Marriage For Various Believers

| by | Scripture: 1 Corinthians 7:8-16 | Series:

In this passage the apostle Paul gives spiritual counsel to 3 groups of believers: the unmarried, believers married to believers, and believers married to unbelievers. Admittedly there are some difficult and thorny problems in this section of Scripture when it comes to interpretation, but the rewards of careful study here give light on this difficult issue. The church has struggled with understanding and applying Paul’s counsel in this section for hundreds of years. I guess we’ll contribute our 2 cents to the whole!
