1 Corinthians

1 Corinthians was written by the Apostle Paul to the believers in Corinth. Although their were many carnal Christians within the church, Paul still gives them the assurance of eternal life. They are called saints (1 Corinthians 1:2) and are said to be washed, sanctified and justified (1 Corinthians 6:11. Nevertheless, Paul needed to write to them because there were internal fighting and divisions within the church (1 Corinthians 1:10). There were also moral sins that were allowed to continue with the church. Paul sternly tells them to take care of the matter (1 Corinthians 5). He admonishes them in the first 6 chapters and them answers a number of questions that they had about marriage and divorce, Christian liberty, spiritual gifts, and the resurrection.

Many of the problem found in the Corinthian church are similar to the ones found in churches today. Understanding the letters written to the Corinthians will be beneficial to all believers in practical living for the Lord.
