The lesson on January 11, 2015 was part 13 of the "First Corinthians" Study and continues with chapter six of the epistle. The topic of this chapter is training the Corinthian church to love more in knowledge and in all judgement. To approve the things that are excellent you must be able to test things so you can approve the best results. Those in the church of novice stature are asked to judge the non-important part of the assembly but those that are into the meat of scriputure are asked to judge or perfect doctrinal issues relating to immoral behavior in the church. The scripture reading was in 1 Corinthians 6:1-6 KJV
"1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints? 2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? 4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. 5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren? 6 But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers."
