5/18/14 Message

 
On Sunday we continued in 1 Corinthians 10 and considered eight questions in a Biblical Approach to Controversial Topics:
     1) Overall, is this helping me or hurting me? vs 23 “beneficial” 
     2) Is this more likely to build me up or pull me down? vs 23 “constructive”  
     3) Is this beginning to control my life? “mastered” 
     4) What does my conscience say? “conscience” 
     5) Is this activity consistent with living a life for the glory of God? vs 31 “do   
         it all for the glory of God” 
     6) How does this affect the people around me? vs 32 “stumble” 
     7) Will my participation in this activity be a hindrance to the message of   
         Christ? vs 33 “so that they may be saved” 
    8) Is this activity consistent with following Christ and His example? vs 11:1   
         “follow the example of Christ”

Do you have a question regarding a "gray area"?


Is it okay for a Christian to drink?  How about gambling? Some say “yes”, some say “no”, some say “it depends”. What does the Bible say about handling “gray” areas?  That’s the focus of our five week series “Shades of Gray”. 

As part of this series we want to hear your questions regarding topics on which Christians of good conscience may disagree. If you have a question, send an email to info@newlifecommunitychurch.net and put “shades of gray” in the subject line.

To find out more about child dedication, click here.

5/11/14 Message

This Sunday we started our new series "Shades of Gray." 1 Corinthian 8 gives us an idea of questions to consider when deciding whether a "gray area" is right or wrong: 

1) What can I know from the Bible regarding this topic? vs 4 “we know”
2) Is my knowledge based on a correct view of God and His sovereignty over all creation? vs 4-6 “no God but one” “all things”
3) Am I taking cultural associations into consideration? vs 7 “not everyone knows… they think of it as…”
4) What does my conscience say? vs 7 “conscience”
5) How does it affect the people around me? vs 9-13 “stumbling block” “fall into sin”
