Divisions and Differences

From Series: Firm Foundation, Volume 4

1 Corinthians 11:17-22  (ID: 1691)

When a congregation becomes preoccupied with superficial differences, then greed, division, and isolation will replace grace, unity, and involvement. Although the Corinthian church prided themselves on meeting regularly, their meetings had become opportunities for division and self-indulgence, rather than a time to share in fellowship and worship. Alistair Begg teaches that God may allow division in order to weed out heresies, but Christians are to focus on the essential element of our oneness—the unity in Spirit that we enjoy in Christ.

The Lord's Supper

17But in the following instructions I do not commend you, because when you come together it is not for the better but for the worse.
