  • Answer Four: God's Wisdom Is Revealed Series

    Contributed by Jerry Cosper on Apr 21, 2015
     | 2,275 views

    Paul gives the Corinthian church a fourth answer to the division in the church. That answer basically is that the church should revolve around the wisdom of God that is revealed by the Holy Spirit, and nothing else.

    One of the greatest causes of division in a church is pride. Pride, arrogance, superiority, thinking too highly of oneself—no form or shape of self-centeredness has any part in God’s church. The Corinthians had an intellectual pride that was becoming deeply rooted in the church. This ...read more

    based on 1 rating
     | 1,641 views

    One of the serious problems in the Corinthian church concerned former ministers. Some of the church members were esteeming one minister above the other ministers and it caused severe problems.

    This passage tonight goes hand-in-hand with what Jesus said in Matthew 7:1: “Do not judge so that you will not be judged.” We have seen in our studies in 1 Corinthians that one of the serious problems in the Corinthian church concerned former ministers. Some of the church members were ...read more

    There is really one answer to a divided church and that is THE CROSS. It is the cross that reveals the love of God.

    Up to this point in the first chapter of 1 Corinthians we have been discussing the divided church. There is really one answer to a divided church and that is THE CROSS.

    United we stand What a mess! It should have been a model church; after all it had all the earmarks of becoming the greatest church in the denomination. Its founding pastor was the most prolific church planter in the denomination; the next man was by far the best preacher that could be offered ...read more
