1 Corinthians 4:1-5 Paul was not a perfect person nor was he immune to personal criticism, but he was facing distorted judgment with regard to his teaching. Pastor Rod Bunton explains this passage where Paul defends his theological position and approach to teaching the Gospel.
We are commanded by God to worship him, but does it really matter how we do it? Pastor Doug Link tells us that God does indeed care about how we do it and his Word tells us what is acceptable and pleasing to him.
1 Corinthians 3:18-23 Since early in this letter, Paul has been addressing the problem of disunity within the church. In this passage, he examines the threat of human wisdom that was contributing to that problem. Pastor Rod Bunton shows us how, especially today, we have become foolishly confident in our ability to solve problems, relying on our own solutions that separate us instead of becoming unified by diving deeper into Christ and His word.
1 Corinthians 3:13-17, 2 Corinthians 5:6-10 In a conclusion to this passage, Paul taught the Corinthian church that their work on earth, revealed by fire, would result in rewards for some believers. Pastor Rod Bunton dives deeper into that day, called the Judgment Seat of Christ, in which the Lord will judge believers.
