Good evening, please open your bibles to 1st Corinthians. The text to which we will turn our attention is found at the end of chapter 2 in 1st Corinthians. We will tonight continue our journey through Paul’s words to the church of God in Corinth, and the church of God today. Paul has been teaching us what it means to be truly wise.

As we have seen, that’s one of the things that is most helpful about Paul: he shows how everything is theological. Every disagreement, every temptation,...

We’ve slowly but surely been making our way through this powerful letter of first principles. Paul has a wonderful ability to cut right through problems, right through the surface level issues, and get right to the theological heart of the conflict.

The church has become divided, and is in jeopardy of splintering if...
