A Warning to the Church, Part One

From Series: Firm Foundation, Volume 1

1 Corinthians 4:8-21  (ID: 1618)

When we’re satisfied with ourselves and lazy in our spiritual condition, it’s time for a wake-up call. Paul lovingly confronted the Corinthian believers about their preoccupation with status, reputation, and popularity while they ignored serious issues of moral laxity. Alistair Begg warns that this kind of smugness can quickly lead to the demise of an effective church.


8Already you have all you want! Already you have become rich! Without us you have become kings! And would that you did reign, so that we might share the rule with you!
