Why Doesn’t Everyone Believe?

1 Corinthians 2:14-16 Can sufficient evidence and argument save a person? Can they be convinced to believe with enough faith to be born again? Pastor Rod Bunton examines Paul’s teaching that, although man is naturally resistant to God’s revelation, faith that saves is a gift from God which requires the intervention of the Holy Spirit.

God Has a Plan

1 Corinthians 2:8-13 Paul began addressing the issue within the Corinthian church of teaching a man-centered gospel by pointing out that is was ever-changing and powerless. In this passage, he continues by pointing out that only God’s inspired scripture reveals His plan. Pastor Rod Bunton teaches that this is crucial because you can have confidence that the message of salvation is truly God’s message.

Boast in the Lord

1 Corinthians 1:26-31 The Corinthians were trying to change the Gospel to make it more impressive and to make it match their own understanding. Pastor Rod Bunton explains that we can be in Christ because God alone made it possible so that no man can boast in his own accomplishment of salvation.

The Power of the Offensive and the Unimpressive

1 Corinthians 1:26-31 Paul emphasized that he did not want or need to embellish the Gospel message in order to impress his audience. Pastor Rod Bunton explains that those who want to change the Gospel to appeal to man don’t realize that the point of the Gospel is to humiliate the wisdom of man.
