Our First Study we will look at is 1 Corinthians 3. Here are a few questions about it.
Does this chapter really teach the Judgment Seat of Christ?
I will challenge you with “NO.” Once we see the context of these scriptures, the judgment seat of Christ will fade from understanding.
Are we saying there is no Judgment seat of Christ?
By all means no. However, that is not the lesson Paul will teach in these chapters. I submit the following to you to ponder; since the first 2 chapters of 1 Corinthians deal with the main subject of wisdom, then should we not contend that this chapter is the Holy Spirit’s continuance of that thought?
Let’s look at this scripture in the exact context and not with the traditional teaching that some have taught. You’ll be amazed at what the scripture says.
1 Corinthians Chapter 3 Study
by Anchored In The Cross Ministries
3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.
This verse is very discouraging at first but Paul is patient as all of God’s ministers should be. Paul had some deeper things to speak to the Corinthian church body, but they weren’t ready for it. This seems to echo Jesus’ words to the disciples when He said “I have yet many things yet to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.” John 16:12. Spiritual wisdom cannot be understood by carnal men in the same way that a calculus problem cannot be explained and solved by a first grader. There must be growth. Line upon line and precept upon precept.
You are welcome to submit you comments and interpretations. I will publish them as they are submitted. Otherwise, we will continue on with this study.
This page is dedicated to the study, research and breaking down of the word of God for the purpose of seeking the truth in its passages. Everyone is welcome to post your questions, comments. Everyone is welcome to submit passages of scripture for us to study as well. I look forward to seeing what God has in store for us all.
