1 Corinthians: The Challenge of Life Together

Teacher: Wi-Guan Lim
Dates: Nov 7-Mar 6, 2011
Age Group: All ages | Rm: Moberly Library

Divisions, spiritual immaturity, internal bickering, sexual immorality, marital difficulties, misuse of spiritual gifts, disorder in the church – these were some of the problems plaguing the church at Corinth. The Apostle Paul confronts and corrects these problems in 1 Corinthians. He corrects their faulty theology and points them to the “most excellent way”. Are these issues relevant to our church today? Our goal is to study 1 Corinthians and see what God says, through the Spirit-inspired words of the Apostle Paul, to us – then you can decide for yourself.
