2:19 – Let’s pray….


3:04 – Saints, my cousin Reverend Quinda Richardson is here with us from South Carolina. Welcome Quinda

3:27 – Saints, our journey into 1st Corinthians is going to be a long one. On the previous episode #47 we discussed First Corinthians 1: 1-9. Now we are going to discuss verses 10-25 so time to open your Bible and get your journal out. Now if you are following along you should be talking out the journal you set aside for studying 1 Corinthians.  I asked my cousin if she would help me share the gospel with you so we all can get a deeper understanding of who our God is and our relationship to Him and others in order to do what God’s called us to do. So let’s begin with some background information. This way we can keep everything in context for when we begin to apply the principles we learn from these verses. This is Paul’s second letter to the Church at Corinth about their un-Christ like behavior which was carried by Titus to the Church (2 Corinthians 7:8-12). Any thing you want to add Quinda?

5:11 – First Corinthians 1:10-25 (ESV) read by Lyvita.

Questions Discussed with guest Rev. Quinda Richardson and host Lyvita Brooks:

8:33 – Quinda explains how she studies the Bible
10:43 –  Is the Bible boring?
11:24 – Why is the church divided?
15:26 – The importance of being a mature Christian?
16:20 – How are worldly views entering our Christian life today?
17:22 – How can we change?
19:10 – Why are we afraid to let go of sin?
23:40 – Why did Christ die for us?
23:55 – Are saints suppose to agree on everything?
25:00 – Being a mature Christian, means?
28:26 – What can we do to start reading the Bible?

32:03 – So, Quinda, what are you doing in 2022?

Stop trying to justify you’re wrong and do what God’s called you to do so that people will flock to Christ and glorify God. That means – Study Your Bible!
