Corinthians: Living For Christ in a Fallen World

corinthians_square-300x300What happens when the church starts to look more and more like the world and less and less like Jesus? The church in Corinth struggled with this. The Apostle Paul planted the church in Corinth. After a few years, he started receiving letters and reports of problems. The church was troubled with division, lawsuits between believers, sexual sins, disorderly worship, and overall spiritual immaturity. Paul wrote 1Corinthians to confront and correct these Christians, answer their questions, and instruct them in several areas. He warned them not to be conformed to the world around them, but rather, to live as godly examples, reflecting Christlikeness in the midst of an immoral society.

What does spiritual freedom mean to a Christian? When everyone around is caught up in immorality, and you’re bombarded with constant temptation, how do you stand for righteousness? The fledgling church in Corinth was floundering with these questions as the believers struggled to sort out living for Christ in a world overtaken with corruption and idolatry. Established churches face the same things. Join us as we study Pauls letter and learn what it means to live for Christ in a fallen world!
