Rights, Relationships, Responsibilities |  14.08.2016  |  Karen Wilson  |  Listen 
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 9

“1-2 And don’t tell me that I have no authority to write like this. I’m perfectly free to do this—isn’t that obvious? Haven’t I been given a job to do? Wasn’t I commissioned to this work in a face-to-face meeting with Jesus, our Master? Aren’t you yourselves proof of the good work that I’ve done for the Master? Even if no one else admits the authority of my commission, you can’t deny it. Why, my work with you is living proof of my authority!”

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 8-10

An excerpt:
“Forrest Gump said that life is like a box of chocolates, Rod says that life is like an old fashioned doughnut with a hole in it. Some things like real idolatry are wrong every day of the week and five times on Sundays. Other things like eating food offered to idols or doing yoga are discretionary, they are not wrong in themselves but may do harm to others”
