1cor3.  "Problems Solved” Sunday Morning January 22, 2018, 11am
Paul is discussing problems in the church. What is it that causes the problems in the church? The answer is quite obvious, People coming for many different reasons, except to learn more about the word of GOD. Let us truly examine why we come to church, is it really hoping and praying that the word of GOD would sink deep into our hearts?
Are we looking for a church that preaches the word, or for one where they have a large children’s program, a Sunday school class for people just like me, lots of children so my children will be happy, the kind of music I like, a large church, a church that has my class of people. If we are going to church for any other reason than to hear the word of GOD and take it into our heart and to live by, we are building our life on sinking sand.
No one should lay a foundation for life on sinking sand, we must all lay our foundation for life, on the solid rock of Jesus, and GOD’s word.
Now lots of people get the Jesus part right, taking Jesus as their savior, but do very little with the word of GOD, this creates baby Christians.
Baby Christians are hard to distinguish from unbelievers in that they think that they do not need GOD’s word in their life, so they build their life on the treasures and pleasures of this world. Baby Christians suffer from the lack of Bible knowledge, that is why they go along with so many things that seem right in their own eyes. The Bible warned us that this day was coming when people would do that which is right in their own eyes
 Many baby Christians believe that killing babies is okay, sex outside of marriage between a man and woman is okay. The Bible says it is wrong. The Bible teaches against divorce, Yet we have a very high divorce rate. The Bible says we are to assemble ourselves together, yet churches are not full. Most Christians believe it is okay to take a few things from their work place, like pens, paper, etc, without offering to pay for these items. The Bible says you shall not steal. Most Christians do not read their Bible and know very little, But the Bible says we are to study to show ourselves approved. Now all instances, except denial of Jesus as our savior, can be forgiven.
Matt 6:33 seek ye first the Kingdom of GOD and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you. Not only will this solve the problems in the church, but all the problems of our nation and world.
 Paul knows that baby Christians are going to heaven, but Paul was sad that they would cause much confusion by taking stands that are not Christian. Paul wants baby Christians to have that full and abundant life that GOD wants to give us.
It is time for Bible knowledge 1-4
GOD not man gives the increase. 5-9
Life's foundation must be built on Jesus, and GOD’s word. 10-15
We are GOD's temple, where his spirit dwells. 16-23
GOD bless you with his grace and peace multiplied
