Sermon – Litigation in the Family (1 Cor 6:1-11)

Read the text – 1 Corinthians 6:1-11

What happens when Christians disagree? The church of Corinth was using the legal system, not to seek justice, but to deal with church family disagreements that should never involve secular authorities.

Ken Noakes helps us to see a biblical model for disagreement. The aim is to restore and uphold each other in faith and in the Christian family. Grace and unity are far more important that some of the ideals that a secular court of law will achieve. Interestingly, Ken shows how this passage addresses the way that we can unhelpfully use social media.
