  • 1 Corinthians Chapter 1 Summary

    Journal #5 I really enjoyed reading 1 Corinthians during this past unit. It is a book that I very often read bits and pieces from, but do not typically take the tame to read straight through. I have been finding it notably refreshing to read the entirety of Bible books in this study, and doing so with 1 Corinthians was no exception. My main takeaway from reading Paul 's letter can be summed up in this question: Where is your focus? The culture that Paul was writing to in Corinth was very self-absorbed; highly concerned with their own customs, traditions, methods, beliefs, and desires. It is clear, however, that Paul was yearning for this people group to live unto something far beyond themselves. Paul wanted the church to stop focusing on themselves and look to Christ. Over and over again, the apostle called the Corinthians to choose an eternal focus, rather than a temporary one; a spiritual focus, rather than the physical; a faith focus over a works/law focus; a focus on the glorification of Christ rather instead of man.…

  • Analysis Of C. S. Lewis 'Learning In War Time'

    pursue academics, strife in the world will ever be present. Lewis went on to say that no one can live fully devoted to war because it is necessary to perform normal life activities. In addition surrendering oneself to any single cause would be dishonorable to God. C.S. Lewis’s piece dramatically influenced me and removed an embedded guilt from my life. I am living in a war time, not just through military opposition, but also through human agony. How can I with a pure conscious do…

  • Obesity Case Study: It Is Care

    She was seeking for helping relationships, to name only a few. I believe that most of pastoral care and pastoral counseling occurs not in the office suites of specialists, but it happens in the churches where people were together worship, study, socialize, and work together. Second, the parishioner believes that religious leaders were very accessible just like pastor. Although, we can see some of them were refusal to counseling on some areas. Obesity is a serious, chronic medical…

  • Marriage, Sexual Imorality, And Divorce In Today's Church

    Paul wrote what is now the book of First Corinthians as a letter to the church of Corinth. After hearing of disputes and worries from members of the church, Paul wrote the congregation letters (including first and second Corinthians) as counsel to guide the church back to the right path (Elwell & Yarbrough, 273). One of the problems listed is the concern of marriage. Paul responds to questions such as: should Christians get married? And what basis is there for divorce? In relation to today’s…

  • Rationalization Of Sin

    A sin described in the Old Testament as so heinous, ugly, and despicable that the Lord requires the offending individuals to be cut off from their people. In addition, as referenced in the text, the sin of incest caused even the pagans of the Corinthian culture to cringe. Specifically, the sin identified is that of a man in the church, in a sexual relationship with his father’s wife. From the accounts and wording in the text, it appears to be his stepmother. Furthermore, this sinful behavior was…

  • Personal Narrative: I Am I

    laughing at that one because instead, I ended up finding His Word continuously telling me I am weak. I didn’t feel affirmed. I was looking for a fake affirmation that is shaped like the approval of shattered men. I have heard multiple times throughout my journey with Jesus that Christians should boast in their weaknesses. I was always told but never taught how to do that or what it even means. Thus, I started my own research. As I dove into what scripture was telling me, I asked the Holy Spirit…

  • Colossians 3: 1-15 Analysis

    Paul’s final call of the church in Colossians 3:1-15 is witnessed in Colossians 3:14-15 which reads, “And above all these, put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.” Both love and thankfulness, but especially love, are some of Christ’s most prominent characteristics. 1 John 4:19 states, “We love because he first loved us.” (ESV 1 John 4:19) Again, we are taught to…

  • Letters To Thessalonica Analysis

    obtaining the gift of God with money. With this understanding one cannot acquire his own body, as the other view of translation would have. In the Old Testament this very sense is made in Ruth 4:10 about acquiring a wife. Additionally, the Hebrew and Greek language of “obtaining” a wife reflects the cultural ideas of women passing into her husband’s possession at the point of marriage. The second reason for this rendering, is the use of the word “vessel” as a woman in 1 Peter 3:7 as well as…
