Paul has been dealing with the problems that a misunderstanding of Christian freedom can bring in the life of a church. In verses 1 to 13, as we looked at last time, Paul focused on the problem of presumption. The Corinthians were in danger of being presumptuous, thinking themselves free to live however they pleased. Then this week, 14 to 22, the problem of compromise – seeking to...


When we were first married, my wife, Sheena, worked as a community nurse in a town called Airdrie between Glasgow and Edinburgh in central Scotland.
