Show Notes

Hello!

Thank you for joining us on Into the Pray.

Today's verses in our study series, City of Temples, are 1 Corinthians 15:29-34.

We’ll be finishing our public reading of the gospel of Luke on Good Friday (April 15th, 4pm GMT) via YouTube LIVE.

In 1 Corinthians 4:14, Paul wrote:

“I do not write these things to make you ashamed, but to admonish you as my beloved children.”

This fatherly Apostle has a different tone in today’s passage but one that is no less loving, (cf. 15:34).

Double-mindedness is a concept used in the philosophy and theology of the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkergaard (1813–1855), meaning insincerity, egoism, or fear of punishment. As referenced in today’s session, the term is used in the book of James, (James 1:8).

PAUL IS PUSHING THE CORINTHIAN CHURCH TO SEE THAT THE MATURITY (perhaps even validity) OF THEIR DISCIPLESHIP DIDN’T HAVE TIME FOR IRRATIONAL DISCONNECTIONS BETWEEN THEIR PRACTICE AND THE CORE DOCTRINES OF APOSTOLIC FAITH.

How does this ring true systemically within the Church today?

How is this applicable to your own life?
