Sermons from September 2020
1 Corinthians 5 Paul was addressing the issue of sexual immorality by a member of the Corinthian church and suggested an appropriate response. Pastor Rod Bunton continues looking at this passage and tells us that a “rescue mission” was appropriate then and is also the only loving response in today’s church, too.
1 Corinthians 5 Paul turns his attention to another issue in the Corinthian church, this time relating to a report of sexual immorality by a member. Pastor Rod Bunton points out that, although the sin itself was a problem, the church’s attitude about it was dangerous.
We gather in the local church because God has commanded it. We gather because it helps us grow spiritually. Pastor Rod Bunton concludes this series by reminding us that there is another reason: we must go out from the church into the world to carry out our mission for the kingdom.
The church is imperfect, many wrong things have been done in the name of the church, and it seems there are hypocrites everywhere. Pastor Rod Bunton answers the question, “Is it even necessary to go to church?”
