Liberty in Love (1 Cor. 8:1-13)

Is it okay for a Christian to drink?  Is it okay for a Christian to get a tattoo?  Is it okay for a Christian to dance, or go to a movie theater, or to smoke?  In Paul's day, the big question was, "Is it okay for a Christian to eat meat offered to idols?"  From Paul's answer to this cultural question of his day, we can find the answer to the cultural issues of our day.

Don’t Go Changing to Try to Please…Them (1 Cor. 7:17-40)

Conformity is one of those unnecessary cancers that can affect a church.  Women and men feel intense peer pressure to alter their outward appearance so as to conform to the church's expectations.  Paul says that it is not necessary to change the outside; it is necessary to change the inside. You be you, so long as you are keeping the commandments of God.

Liked or Light? (1 Cor. 4:8-21)

Just like in American Christianity today, the carnal Christians of Corinth are struggling with pride, the desire to be liked instead of light, and in-fighting and back-biting over preferred worship styles. Paul offers some stern words for these self-appointed church-growth experts who are willing to split the church get their way.

Let the Judge Do the Judging (1 Cor. 4:1-7)

Paul speaks to those who are critical of him and others over non-biblical preferences and opinions.  Whenever carnal Christians elevate their opinions to the same level of authority as scripture, and then make demands of the church leadership to abide by their opinions, they have "exceeded what is written."  This message is extremely applicable to Christians today who insist on the Bible and...

Be a Fool for Christ (1 Cor. 3:18-23)

The Bible is clear that there is worldly wisdom (which is an oxymoron) and there is godly wisdom, which is found in the Bible.  Worldly people may have intellectual expertise in their field of endeavor, but from their own human efforts, they can never discern spiritual things.  Spiritual wisdom and a biblical worldview come only through humility and Bible study. Those who proclaim godly wisdom are often considered fools (literally, "morons") by the unsaved world.  Paul warns the church at Corinth that must not seek worldly approval nor exemplify the world's wisdom within the church of God.

Milk or Meat? (1 Cor. 3:1-9)

Jack Nicholson uttered the famous line in a 1992 movie that has become part of our cultural lexicon, "You can't handle the truth!" In today's passage, Paul basically tells the Corinthian church the same thing.  How could a church planted by Paul, full of saved people, be unable to handle the truth?  And what are the evidences of a church that can't handle the church?  They are all around us in the typical American Christian culture.

Who’s Wisdom Are You Following? (1 Cor. 2)

Paul is writing to a church that was off to a great start, but is faltering.  They are breaking into factions, and they are finding more value in human leaders than in their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Have you ever known Christians who were more loyal to their pastor or to a TV evangelist than they were to the Lord?  Paul says this happens when we trust in the world's wisdom rather than in God's.  Who's wisdom are you following?

The Foolishness of Preaching (1 Cor. 1:13-31)

The church at Corinth is splitting into factions, and Paul offers words of instruction to remind them of the basis and importance of their unity as a body.  He also takes this opportunity to remind us that the gospel does not need our help.  It does not need to be partnered with baptism, nor does it need sugar-coating, focus group evaluation, or marketing schemes.  As a matter of fact, adding those things to the gospel presentation reduces the power of the cross and reveals that the speaker lacks faith in the simple, confrontational gospel message to do its work.

Inspiration of Scripture (2 Peter 1:16-21)

We're following Peter's instructions for a rock-solid faith -- one that will weather any storm and continue to grow.  HE told us to have confidence in our faith (that's the foundation); he told us to tap into God's power (that's the Holy Spirit); he told us to follow God's promises (that's the blueprint).  This morning, we're going to focus on the reliability of the blueprint. Can it be trusted?
