    Contributed by Stephen Belokur on Sep 26, 2017
     | 3,197 views

    In 1 Corinthians there was an atmosphere of chaos and so the apostle Paul writes a letter. And in that letter he reminds them of the focal point of what he taught them when he was there and that is, "Jesus Christ and Him crucified." Is that all they need?

The simple act of communion had been perverted into a feast for the rich to gorge themselves in front of those who were poor and had no food. ...read more
