First Corinthians - Part 10

First Corinthians - Part 10

The lesson on November 30, 2014 was part 10 of the "First Corinthians" study.  This lesson continues to look at the structure of chapter 2 & 3 and the spiritual problem of babies.  Wayne uses statistics to describe things to do with God (theta in the formula) and how God releases information to us so we may look at God through the scriptures and update our walk (x in the formula).  We learned of "Baye's Rule" which explains how we may be perfected with right division where our understanding is updated with truth so we may be better stewards of the scriptures.  He reminded us of the story of Priscilla and Aquilla who provided an update in Acts 18 to Apollos who, once received it, became better afterwards. The scripture reading was from 1 Corinthians 4:1-6 KJV

"1 Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. 2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. 3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self. 4 For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord. 5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God. 6 And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another."
