• God’s Unchanging Word Media Resource by

    1 Corinthians 1

    The Holy Spirit can use apologetics to break down barriers to the gospel; however, people are finally converted to Christ only through the power of the Word of God. In this session, Dr. Steven Lawson reminds us that the power of God is found in His Word and that He saves people through the preaching of the gospel that is foolishness to the world but the wisdom of God unto salvation (1 Cor. 1:20–25).

  • To the World, Folly & a Stumbling Block Media Resource by

    1 Corinthians 1

    While the church today struggles in the face of anti-Christian opposition, this is not something new. Working out of 1 Corinthians 1:23, Dr. Steven J. Lawson will remind us in this session that we face the same kinds of struggles today that the church at Corinth faced two thousand years ago. Like them, we face objections to two fundamental truths of our message: the reality of sin and the notion that Jesus alone can save. Dr. Lawson will insist, as Paul did, that we cannot negotiate either truth. View Resource

  • The Saints in Corinth Part 1 Media Resource by

    1 Corinthians 1:2

    Paul instructed the church at Corinth in the truth of the doctrines of grace in faithfulness to his calling as an Apostle of Christ. In his first letter to the Corinthians, he did not stray away from proclaiming the fundamental truths of the faith, for this is exactly what the church in Corinth needed.

  • Why So Many Interpretations? The Clarity of Scripture & Interpretation Media Resource by

    1 Corinthians 2:8-10

    You may hear people in certain circles of evangelicalism claim that they do not need teachers or instructors of Scripture, for, as Jeremiah says, “And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the LORD. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more” (Jer. 31:34). The New Testament affirms Jeremiah’s message, and it explains that the fundamental message of the gospel is clear and easy to understand if the Holy Spirit … View Resource

  • The Clarity of Scripture Media Resource by

    1 Corinthians 2:11

    Many people excuse themselves from reading the Bible because they claim it is too difficult to understand. Is the Bible too difficult for the average person?

  • The Carnal Christian Media Resource by

    1 Corinthians 3:1-4

    There are Christians whose lives are marked by steadfast spiritual growth and maturity. Then there are those whose lives exhibit no growth to speak of. To them, Christian disciplines such as fellowship and worship with the other believers; prayer and Scripture reading; are all merely optional. Their lives show little or no signs of growth from the time they made a profession of Christ. Some have excused this behavior by claiming they are Carnal Christians, asserting that this is a Biblical designation. Does the Bible teach this idea? Here in this lecture Dr. Sproul will show that our security lies … View Resource

  • A Biblical Sex Ethic Media Resource by

    1 Corinthians 6:18

    The world has its own sexual ethics that are imposed on us every day. A popular notion in our culture is that as long as two consenting adults love each other, they have the right to engage in sexual relations. Some have suggested that Jesus’ pardoning of the women caught in adultery was a kind of “stamp of approval” on her lifestyle. Does the Bible have a clear teaching on sexual ethics? In this message, Dr. Sproul clarifies any misconceptions people may have and gives us a clear “Biblical Sex Ethic.” View Resource
