October 2019 Recap

by | Oct 27, 2019 | News, Reflections

I admit I was dreading the meat sacrificed to idols section (1Corinthians 8-10).  How could that possibly be relevant today?  Now I wish I’d studied it years ago!  I hope you’re finding it as challenging and engaging as I am.   October milestones: We set a new record for subscribers in one month, and we hit podcast #475!  How should we celebrate #500?


19 1Corinthians 7:12-24 To the rest

In 1Corinthians 7, Paul corrects the idea that married people should be celibate in order to be holy. In this section, he addresses believers married to unbelievers, and tells them it is best to honor their marriage vows.

20 1Corinthians 7:25-40 To the betrothed

Paul concludes his advice on marriage by addressing the engaged. As he explains his thinking, Paul gives us one of the most profound lessons we can learn in this life.

21 1Corinthians 8:1-3 Knowledge makes arrogant

Paul addresses a new question: Can we eat meat sacrificed to idols? His answer gives us deep insight into the relationship between knowledge and freedom, truth and love.

22 1Corinthians 8:4-13 Concerning meat and idols

In 1Corinthians 8, Paul argues that knowing the truth is not enough; we must use our knowledge in the context of loving our neighbors as ourselves and consider the implications of our actions.
