1 Corinthians Chapter 1 Discussion

  • Tommy Berryhill on 1 Corinthians 1

    Why in Isaiah would they say plainly "I am the Lord and besides me there is no Saviour?" And in Colossians "In him (Jesus) dwells all of the FULLNESS of the GODHEAD bodily"? Why does James say "Even the devils believe there is ONE God (not three!) And shudder" And another verse in Isaiah plainly says "Is there any God besides me? I know not of any!." Jesus says to John in Revelation "I am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and End, the First and the Last!" And in Exodus when Moses asks Gods name, he says "I am that I am". When Jesus said that same statement in John, the pharisees took up stones to throw at him, because they knew he was plainly saying "I am God almighty". Also in John, when Philip said "Lord, show us the father, and it sufficed us" Jesus said to him "Have I been with you so long, Philip, that you do not realize who I AM? He who has seen me has seen the father." So, how can you believe in Three Gods when the bible clearly states that there is One God (Deuteronomy 6:4)?

    Hiya Tommy i commend you for believing that Christ was God Almighty but they are 2 distinct beings 2, As Jesus said my Father is greater then I, and only the Son died not his Father 2 distinct beings. And his Father wd be lying when he said this is my beloveth Son in whom i am well pleased. We know that God cannot lie . The God head is exactly like abraham issac and jacob .Father son and Granson ,Its was granson Jacob whos name was changed to Israel that was multiplied as the sands of the seas but Jacob neva died but Christ was offered up and he died so this Promise is really about Christ being multiplied as the stars of heaven,And thats y the sower will go forth to sow his precious seed in humanity that God might be multplied as the stars of heaven in US SINNERS .To whom the word ( THAT HEAVENLY SEED ) came it made them GODS PLURAL. An Israel of God.That great Promise was multiplication of God himself Which is the H.G. the Granson .When God told Moses that his name was abraham issac and jacob ,Thats Father Son and GRANSON, 3 distinct beings. Without this Father Son n Granson scenario there cannot be an Israel of God. You folks that gag at 3 are gonna be sick. ya gona have to swollow a zillion ( as the stars of heaven ) Its God almighty that wants a posterity Jesus was just the 1 st born of many breathren, But when the sower will go forth to sow his precious seed in humanity. Christ ( the H.G. ) will be multiplied as the stars of heaven,I will pour out of my Spirit ( the H.G. ) ON ALL FLESH. Yes abraham,issac and jacob were multiplied but they were not the Children of Promise. Its only Christ and his seed that are the Israel of God. To whom the WORD came it made them Gods plural and the scrip. cannot be broken . The Son was not lying when he refers to God Almighty as his father . 3 distinct beings But Isaiah tells us of heavenly Jacob coming in v 49 the sun nor any heat doth lite on them simply b/c they are spirits , THAT WHICH IS BORN OF THE SPIRIT IS SPIRIT . k

    There are no human words that can replace the Word of GOD written in a collection of 66 books, each book divided into chapters, and each chapter divided into verses.

    That which is written is upright, even words of Truth. Eccl. 12:v.10
  • Alex - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 1
    Hiya OSEAS Yes but Jesus made comments about the written word as search the scriptures ( THE WRITTEN WORDS ) in them you think you have eternal LIFE . As eternal life is only in the living words of our lord, Jesus says My words are spirit and life the H.G. God made us able ministers of the living word not the letter that brings death but of the spirit that brings life. As the book in the Fathers right hand is the book of life that Jesus wrote with his own Blood the WORDS OF LIFE THE H.G. . Remember Israel was Sola Scriptura .Written word only But Israel stoned almost all the prophets and rejected the Christ. If the Written word cd have saved humanity Jesus shed his blood in vain and the Cross was just foolishness. God made 2 lights the lesser light and the greater light, the written word and the living word but the written word answers to the lesser light but the living Word answers to the greater LIGHT . Jesus said are there not 12 hours in a day and 12 hours in a night but if a man walk in the nite, bible only no holy spirit the living word, he is gonna stumble,There are a zillion different Churches on every corner, But we are in a time of gross darkess as Isaiah says gross darkness will cover the earth and gross darkness the people but we got zillions of bibles .But NO JESUS, As Jesus said i am the light of the WORLD but the nite comes when no man can work. The great abomination of DESOLATION is upon us.

    What prevails is the Word of GOD. The Word is GOD, understand?

    JESUS left very clear: Matt.11:v.28 - ... No MAN knoweth the Son -JESUS-, but the Father - GOD the FATHER-; neither knoweth any MAN the FATHER -GOD the FATHER-, save the Son -JESUS-, and he TO WHOMSOEVER the Son will reveal Him.

    ...The witness of GOD is greater ..., 1John 5:v.9. Yeah, the witness of GOD is greater; the Word is GOD, understand?

    Tommy Barryhill

    Yeah, there is only One GOD, but He is not as you imagine He is, i say, according your human conception. What prevails is the Word of GOD, understand?

    John 10:v.30 : JESUS said: I and my Father ARE One. JESUS is speaking of two distincts Persons: He and the GOD the Father. For me both ARE equal, there is not any diference, I mean, One is GOD the Father, and JESUS is GOD the Son, both ARE One.

    JESUS said more: I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

    Who is the third? What does GOD the Father say and reveal by His words? IOW, what is the testemony of JESUS about the third Person? John 16:v.7-15

    7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send HIM unto you.

    8 And when HE IS COME, HE will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of Judgment:

    9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;

    10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;

    11 Of Judgment, because the prince of this world (the Devil's world) is Judged.

    12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye CANNOT BEAR THEM now.

    13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of Truth, is come, HE will guide you into all truth: for HE shall not speak of HIMSELF; but whatsoever HE shall hear, that shall HE speak: and HE will shew you things to come.

    14 HE shall glorify me: for HE SHALL RECEIVE OF MINE, and shall shew it unto you.

    15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore SAID I, that HE SHALL TAKE OF MINE, and shall shew it unto you.

    What does the Word of GOD say?

    There are three that bear record in heaven, the FATHER, the Word(made flesh), and the Holy Spirit: and these THREE ARE One.

    JESUS left very clear: No man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he TO WHOMSOEVER the Son will reveal him.

    ITS IT.

    Reply is over on the 'discussion room' posts: the Godhead Scriptures.
  • The Godhead Scriptures - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 1
    The Scriptures about the Godhead. Sometimes called "Let Us..." in some passages. These scriptures are evidence of all 3 persons of the Godhead speaking to each other.

    Genesis 1:26, 3:22, 11:7

    Isaiah 6:8

    Romans 1:20

    Colossians 2:9

    Acts 17:27-30

    1 John 5:7

    John 10:30

    "For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and GODHEAD so that they are without excuse:"

    Genesis 1:1

    The Father purposes

    The Word (Jesus) speaks. (John 1:1)

    The Spirit (Holy Spirit) executes the spoken word. Action.

    All working together. Jesus came to show us the Father, as Emmanuel

    Matthew 1:23

    "Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us."

    Jesus came to bring to each born again believer; the baptism and the in-dwelling of the Holy Spirit.

    [Genesis 1:2, John 3:6, Acts 2:1-3,

    John 16: 7-15]

    To REFUSE this knowledge, is to reject the Son of God, and his provision. Read all those scriptures before you decide. Jesus doesn't brainwash anybody. Ask His followers.

  • Where in 1 Corinthians chapter 17 does it say marriage isn't for everybody?
  • Bro. Bob on 1 Corinthians 1:15
    We see here that even baptism can be greatly misused. Thus we see there is no truth of the christian faith so basic but what it cannot indeed be mishandled so greatly and run into the ground so hard that we have not totally misrepresented the very basis of any decent understanding of it.
  • Linda Ray on 1 Corinthians 1
    for the bonding of the grave. the grave holds the flesh and and Jesus frees the spirit, for the believer the spirit get eternal life, the flesh has but numbered years, let all man please God and BELIEVE.

    question in chapter 1corinthian 1-17 what does it mean lest the cross should be made none effect
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 1
    1 Corinthians 1:17: "For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect."

    The Apostle Paul was writing to the believers in Corinth, Greece, a country whose citizens thrived on & promoted eloquent flowery speech in their discourses. What Paul was reminding the believers here, was that he doesn't use such words to convey the Gospel as that would unnecessarily detract from the true worth & simplicity of it. The message of the Cross was both simple yet profound. That it's beauty lay in making a true & full declaration of its basic message and then allow the Holy Spirit to apply it in His Own way to the hearts of the hearers. So if Paul took the path of other speakers with flowery language & convincing arguments, he says that the message of the Cross would be rendered vain or ineffectual, being lost in the midst of such a delivery & of no spiritual use to his audience.
  • Michael homan on 1 Corinthians 1:26
    A Good father tells his children,what to do and not to do.

    If he didn't, they wouldn't know.

    The 10 Commandments are just basic

    common sense,standard of living

    Commentary for 1 Corinthians 1:1

    People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 1:1

    1Co 1:1 The Divisions in the Church Brought to Light SUMMARY OF I CORINTHIANS 1: Greetings to the Church. Thanksgiving for the Grace of God. An Exhortation to Unity. Schisms Rebuked. The Sin of Honoring Human Leaders Instead of Christ. The Preaching of the Cross the Power of God to Salvation. Not the Worldly Wise and Proud, but the Humble and Lowly. Converted. Paul, called [to be] an apostle of Jesus Christ. Some of the Judaizing teachers, who had visited the church at Corinth after the departure of Paul, in order to lessen his authority, had asserted that he was not an apostle, divinely called like the Twelve. Hence, at the beginning, he asserts his apostleship, and refers to his divine call. See 1Co 9:1 2Co 12:12. Sosthenes, [our] brother. A Sosthenes, who was then the chief ruler of the synagogue at Corinth, is named in Ac 18:17. The Sosthenes whom Paul associated with himself in the letter must have been well known to, and influential among, the Corinthians, and was probably the former chief ruler, who had been converted. Apollos, Priscilla and Aquila, all well known to the church, were at Ephesus with Paul (1Co 16:12,19), but Sosthenes is chosen to appear with him in the salutation.
  • Verse 13-the congregation is to be united and not divided because of following after men. There is one leader of the Christian congregation and that is Christ Jesus.
  • Jeanie L on 1 Corinthians 1
    Hello Connie.

    The passage is in Ephesians verse 3:14.

    But to get a full concept I suggest reading 3:11-17.

    Good luck my sister.
  • Gregory Watts on 1 Corinthians 1
    Am I correct in saying that Christ has freed us from the law, having fulfilled it on the cross, and triumphing over it openly putting it to shame. And that we are no longer under the law to keep it, because the law in Christ Jesus has freed us from the law of sin and death. And that we are made right with God by faith in His son Jesus Christ, not by keeping the law, and lastly if we could keep the law then Christ death is in vain??
  • S Spencer - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 1
    Hi Gregory, You are right but I would put it this way, Christ has freed us from the "curse" of the law, and that we are no longer under the "curse" of the law. Galatians 3:11-13. But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.

    Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth

    We was redeemed by his precious blood. Ephesians 1:7. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; We was purchased by his blood Acts 20:28, Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

    We are forgiven but those sins wasn't, Jesus wasn't pardoned because he was the Christ, He had a debt to pay to the father, God is not a crooked judge, the penalty for those sins had to be paid, And he paid them on the cross. A good study on Romans Ch: 5, 6, 7, and 8 is very helpful on this topic.

    Thank you.
  • Brother Dan - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 1
    God gave mankind the Law which is the 10 commandments. Jesus death did not cancel Gods Laws.

    Jesus said in Matthew below:

    Matthew 5:17-18 17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

    The above is very easy to understand...if we want to understand it.

    There are many false preachers and religions today professing that we can ignore "The Law" which is the 10 Commandments, and live in sin, and as long as you believe in Jesus Christ it is ok.

    If it was this easy....we would all go to heaven, and we know this is not true, because Jesus said that few people will get to heaven.

    We need to believe in God, his Son Jesus Christ and do our very best to refrain from sin and follow God's Commandments.

    God Bless
  • Ron - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 1
    Jesus' death did not cancel the Law He fulfilled the Law. We must not confuse the commandments of Jesus and the law of Moses. The sacrifices of the Law "ye could not be justified by the law of Moses". The law is written in our hearts

    We are not justified by the laws but by the faith in Jesus, the things of the law we do through faith not works. If we look to the law to do the law that is works and we are not saved by works but we are saved by grace and belief in Jesus. Just a few scriptures, and few of Jesus's commandments are; Follow Him, Repent, Don't Lust, Love and pray for your enemies, Love one another, Love God, etc. I know you may not agree but the ten commandments are part of the Law.

    Gal.5:3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.

    Colossians 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

    Ephesians 2:15-16 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:

    Gal.2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

    The law is more than the ten comandments ,if you have read the old testament you know this and you know that there is no forgivness under the law ,are you circumcised ? If you are not and you think we are under the law then you had better get circumcised ,forgiveness is not permitted ,if you are married and your spouse commits adultery you are not permitted to forgive them even if you want to ,they must be stoned to death by you ,if you attempt to conceal your spouses breaking of the law you must be stoned also , i will say it again ,the law is more than the ten commandment ,if you have read the new testament you must realise that we are not under the law ,the ten commandments are excellent ,do i still have to honour my father and mother if they abuse me physically mentaly emotionaly day after day ? What if they are not even Christians ? What if my parents are satanists ? I either have to obey the whole law totally or i am under Gods grace .
  • Brother dan - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 1
    Jesus states the following:

    John 14:15

    "If ye love me, keep my commandments."

    John 14:21

    "He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him."

    John 15:10

    "If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.

    As a true loving christian, how can we argue with what Jesus states about the commandments? In each of the verses above - Jesus uses the word "Love". Love embraces the 10 Commandments and we as loving Christians should be embracing the commandments with Love!

    God Bless
  • Richard in Christ - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 1
    Hello Sacha,

    Just to give a quick reply. Yes, the law is more than the Ten Commandments. The 613 Mitzvot laws which the Ten Commandments are in or from. As the Ten Commandments are not the whole law they are moral and eternal. Jesus preached them. There are many laws in the Mitzot that are moral, righteous, and still stand. As you stated about stoning people. Jesus Christ showed us , with the adulterous, that he does not condone this law. Or about washing hands before eating. A Nazarite to not eat fresh grapes or raisins seems foolish to me. Although thousands of years ago there was probably a reason for it.

    Just as there are many wise teachings throughout the Holy Bible that are not necessarily in the Mitzvot. Instead of thinking basically "it is the whole law or Gods grace". A lot of the "laws" in the Mitvot have God's grace in them. Some are "ritual" and I don't see the significance to them.

    Let us use our hearts. Always retain God in our thinking and may our Lord Jesus Christ lead the way. Amen.
  • Sacha - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 1
    Gregory ,yes ,i belive your message to be accurate and correct ,Jesus is the fullfillment of the law ,the law of love ,love God love each other ,greater love hath no man than this that he lay down his life for his friends ,we are his friends if we belive in him and obey him ,the 1st two commandment are the greatest ,love God and each other ,there is no law that can stand against pure love .
  • Cindy - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 1
    Before Christ laid down His life, the Israelites were under the law. That was it. They sacrificed animals for redemption of sin, which was an ongoing sacrifice.

    Christ came to fulfill the law, not destroy it. "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished.--Matthew 5:17, 18. As Jesus said, the law will not pass away. We are commanded by Him to keep His commandments (The same 10 Moses brought down from Mount Sinai). "Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them."--Matthew 14:21

    To wit. The Israelites kept the law without option, really. The Christian keeps the law because he loves Christ.

    The law was not just the ten commandments .
