Galatians 5:16-23 teaches that at any moment we are either walking by the Holy Spirit or according to the sin nature. Walking by the Spirit, enjoying fellowship with God, walking in the light are virtually synonymous. During these times, the Holy Spirit is working in us to illuminate our minds to the truth of Scripture and to challenge us to apply what we learn. But when we sin, we begin to live based on the sin nature. Our works do not count for eternity. The only way to recover is to confess (admit, acknowledge) our sin to God the Father and we are instantly forgiven, cleansed, and recover our spiritual walk (1 John 1:9). Please make sure you are walking by the Spirit before you begin your Bible study, so it will be spiritually profitable.

1st Corinthians (2002)

1st Corinthians (2002)

January 2002 - September 2004

As Dr. Dean points out in the introduction to this 117-lesson study, 1st Corinthians is an epistle written to address problems in one of the worst congregations ever, the church at Corinth. Virtually every problem that a local church can have was present in Corinth.

This epistle is a fantastic illustration of how the culture around us can dominate our thinking if we don't renovate our thinking with the word of God. It also illustrates that Christians operating on human viewpoint can actually be worse than unbelievers. Dr. Dean taught this series while Pastor of the Preston City Bible Church in Preston, Connecticut starting in January of 2002 and concluding in September of 2004.
