Unhealthy Aspects that Need to be dealt with

Bible References:  1 Corinthians 3:1-3; 1 Corinthians 1:1-11; Phil 2:2-11; 1 Cor. 1-20; 1 John

  • We need to let people know what they do right - more than what they do wrong
  • Divisions and strife occur when we become more concerned about the things that matter to "me"and what matters to the Church
  • Read 1 Corinthians - there are about 10 problems that Paul addresses throughout this epistle
  • We need to be careful that worldliness doesn't take over our Church - the want to power, and corruption of the mind.
  • Being ignorant of what Scripture says is not acceptable
  • We should be committed and self-discipline
  • We should NOT live loosely
  • We need to hold to the TRUTH in Scripture not some weak doctrine
  • We should not be self-indulgent
  • As God's people we are commanded to love one another - God's Way
  • It can cost people their lives if we don't tell them about God who loves them and the way to eternal life.
Identity and Destiny - Who Am I and Where Am I Going?
The Local Church is the place where we learn about:
  • love of God
  • grace of God
  • compassion of God
God's love is not conditional.  Being ignorant of what God says in Scripture is no excuse.
When we become a part of God's family we are to learn about His family - by scripture and by fellowship (meeting together). 

Just a few thoughts....
