B2 Chapter 1
C1 Salutation Chapter 1:1-5
C2 False Gospels Condemned Chapter 1:6-10
D1 Humans have a tendency to change God’s Gospel into something they are more comfortable with, intellectually agree with, and personally approve.
D2 Having, believing, and preaching the correct gospel is so important that having, believing, and preaching the wrong gospel brings God’s curse. The Gospel is
E1 To believe God.
F1 God is correct.
F2 People are not good. People are evil.
F3 Evil people are going to be punished in hell fire.
E2 Exclusive. Only Jesus is savior. Acts 4:11-12 NLT For Jesus is the one referred to in the Scriptures, where it says, 'The stone that you builders rejected has now become the cornerstone.' 12 There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.
E3 Jesus’s life, death, burial, and resurrection. 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 NLT I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. 4 He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said.
E4 Repentance and acknowledging who Jesus is.
E5 That a perfect knowledge of theology is not needed.
E6 Three examples
F1 Galatians 3:6 NRSV Just as Abraham "believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness,"
F2 Luke 18:13-14 NLT But the tax collector stood at a distance and dared not even lift his eyes to heaven as he prayed. Instead, he beat his chest in sorrow, saying, 'O God, be merciful to me, for I am a sinner. 14 I tell you, this sinner, not the Pharisee, returned home justified before God. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted."
F3 2 Chronicles 33:6, 10-13 NLT Manasseh also sacrificed his own sons in the fire in the valley of Ben-Hinnom. He practiced sorcery, divination, and witchcraft, and he consulted with mediums and psychics. He did much that was evil in the LORD's sight, arousing his anger. ... 10 The LORD spoke to Manasseh and his people, but they ignored all his warnings. 11 So the LORD sent the commanders of the Assyrian armies, and they took Manasseh prisoner. They put a ring through his nose, bound him in bronze chains, and led him away to Babylon. 12 But while in deep distress, Manasseh sought the LORD his God and sincerely humbled himself before the God of his ancestors. 13 And when he prayed, the LORD listened to him and was moved by his request. So the LORD brought Manasseh back to Jerusalem and to his kingdom. Then Manasseh finally realized that the LORD alone is God!
F4 Different testimonies, yet all saved.
E7 We are not saved
F1 By doing or believing something else
F2 By good works
F3 By rituals
F4 By a pronouncement of a religious leader
E8 We are saved only by grace alone by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone.
E9 Faith is NOT a human work as many teach: Romans 4:3-4 WEL What does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited as righteousness to him.” 4 Now for the one who works, wages are not considered to be a gift but something owed.
C3 God Instructed Paul about the Gospel Chapter 1:11-17
D1 Paul states that he did not learn the Gospel through human teachers but through God Himself.
D2 Galatians 1:11-12 GNB Let me tell you, my friends, that the gospel I preach is not of human origin. 12 I did not receive it from any human being, nor did anyone teach it to me. It was Jesus Christ himself who revealed it to me.
C4 Paul Met With Apostles Chapter 1:18-24
B2 Chapter 2
C1 The Apostles and Paul Have Same Gospel Chapter 2:1-10
C2 Peter’s Hypocrisy Chapter 2:11-14
D1 Peter was affected by fellow Jews. He didn’t want to be offensive.
D2 Paul had to straighten Peter out.
D3 Sometimes we need to be straightened out by others and to confront others of the truth.
C3 Obedience To The Law Does Not Save; Faith Does Chapter 2:15-21
D1 The Mosaic Law does not save: Galatians 2:16 NLT Yet we know that a person is made right with God by faith in Jesus Christ, not by obeying the law. And we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we might be made right with God because of our faith in Christ, not because we have obeyed the law. For no one will ever be made right with God by obeying the law.
D2 Leaving that Law or falling back into that Law is sin: Galatians 2:17-18 NLT But suppose we seek to be made right with God through faith in Christ and then we are found guilty because we have abandoned the law. Would that mean Christ has led us into sin? Absolutely not! 18 Rather, I am a sinner if I rebuild the old system of law I already tore down.
D3 Keeping Mosaic Law cannot save: Galatians 2:21 NLT I do not treat the grace of God as meaningless. For if keeping the law could make us right with God, then there was no need for Christ to die.
B3 Chapter 3
C1 We Preach the Same Gospel As Abraham Heard Chapter 3:1-9
D1 Paul asks the people if they were saved (received the Holy Spirit) by following the Law or by faith. Then, he asks them why are they now wanting to follow the Law?
D2 Galatians 3:5-6 NLT I ask you again, does God give you the Holy Spirit and work miracles among you because you obey the law? Of course not! It is because you believe the message you heard about Christ. 6 In the same way, "Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith."
C2 The Righteous Live By Faith Alone Chapter 3:10-14
C3 The Law Came After the Gospel Chapter 3:15-18
D1 God’s agreement, covenant, with Abraham was regarding Abraham and Messiah.
E1 KJV Galatians 3:16-17 KJV Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. 17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.
E2 Galatians 3:16-17 NLT God gave the promises to Abraham and his child. And notice that the Scripture doesn't say "to his children," as if it meant many descendants. Rather, it says "to his child"and that, of course, means Christ. 17 This is what I am trying to say: The agreement God made with Abraham could not be canceled 430 years later when God gave the law to Moses. God would be breaking his promise.
D2 This agreement was not annulled 430 years later by the giving of the Mosaic Covenant.
C4 The Law Reveals Our Sins Chapter 3:19-29
B4 Chapter 4
C1 Messiah Jesus Came to Save Those Under the Law Chapter 4:1-7
D1 The Jews followed, that is, obeyed the Mosaic Law, but they still needed a redeemer, because the law cannot save any from God’s wrath.
D2 Paul asks, “Why would you want to obey Mosaic Law now?”
C2 Why Do You Want to be Enslaved to the Law? Chapter 4:8-20
D1 The Gentiles were enslaved to the principles of the world. Gentiles lived according to the world’s worldview and lifestyle.
D2 So why do you now want to be enslaved to Jewish feasts and other ceremonial laws?
D3 Truth must have a standard. Truth must be reality. Often those who speak truth are hated, marginalized, and persecuted. Galatians 4:16 GNB Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth?
D4 These Judaizers want followers: Galatians 4:17-18 GNB Those other people show a deep interest in you, but their intentions are not good. All they want is to separate you from me, so that you will have the same interest in them as they have in you. 18 Now, it is good to have such a deep interest if the purpose is good—this is true always, and not merely when I am with you.
C3 The Illustration of Hagar and Sarah Chapter 4:21-31
B5 Chapter 5
C1 Stay Free! Do Not Be Enslaved to The Law Chapter 5:1-15
D1 It is the commandment of God Himself: Galatians 5:1 NLT So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don't get tied up again in slavery to the law.
D2 Albert Barnes commenting of Galatians 5:1 writes: ...and be not entangled again - Tyndale renders this, “And wrap not yourselves again.” The sense is, do not again allow such a yoke to be put on you; do not again become slaves to any rites, and customs, and habits.
D3 Galatians 5:1 Tyndale Stond fast therfore in ye libertie wher with Christ hath made vs fre and wrappe not youre selves agayne in ye yoke of bondage.
D4 Following the Mosaic Law does not produce change in the heart. One can follow all the laws but be evil at their core. Matthew 23:27-28 NLT What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombsbeautiful on the outside but filled on the inside with dead people's bones and all sorts of impurity. 28 Outwardly you look like righteous people, but inwardly your hearts are filled with hypocrisy and lawlessness.
C2 Live By the Spirit Not The Law Chapter 5:16-26
D1 The unsaved may be wonderful people but to God they are not “good.” They follow the worldview and lifestyle of the world to vastly variable degrees.
D2 A believer is to follow the worldview and lifestyle of God as the Lord Jesus has taught us.
D3 The world’s lifestyle is characterized by Galatians 5:19-21 WEL Now the works of the flesh are obvious. They are adultery, sexual sins, moral corruption, unrestrained lust, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, strife, provoking jealousy, hot anger, pushing to be first, selfish scheming, dissensions, heresy, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, wild partying, and so on, about which I have told you before, and as I have also told you in the past that those who practice such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
D4 God’s lifestyle, the one we are to live, is characterized by Galatians 5:22 But, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, and self-control. There is no law against such things.
B6 Chapter 6
C1 Help Each Other’s Burdens Chapter 6:1-5
D1 We are to help each other, motivate each other, encourage each other. We are a family to care for each other. Galatians 6:2 NLT Share each other's burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.
D2 Yet, we are still responsible for ourselves. We cannot blame others for our failures. Galatians 6:4-5 NLT Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won't need to compare yourself to anyone else. 5 For we are each responsible for our own conduct.
C2 Sow To The Spirit Not The Flesh Chapter 6:6-10
C3 Keeping the Law Is Nothing; A New Creation Is Everything Chapter 6:11-18
D1 Following Mosaic Law leads to pride. This is religious pride and depends are closely we follow Mosaic law. God hates pride.
D2 What God has worked and recreated in us is what is important. There is no place for pride. It is God’s work in us. Galatians 6:15 NLT It doesn't matter whether we have been circumcised or not. What counts is whether we have been transformed into a new creation.

It might seem like we cannot make it as Christians. It seems that we don’t have enough strength to continue, BUT

Isaiah 40:29-31 LEB  He gives power to the weary, and he increases power for the powerless.  30  Even young people will be faint and grow weary, and the young will stumble, exhausted.  31  But those who wait for Yahweh shall renew their strength. They shall go up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not grow weary; they shall walk and not be faint.

B2 2 Corinthians Chapter 1 Salutation, sufferings, and Paul’s motivation

C1 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 MKJV Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort, He comforting us in all our trouble, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in every trouble, through the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
D1 Empathy
D2 All believers are one family. we suffer and rejoice together. We are to pray, listen, help, comfort our fellow believers who are suffering. Galatians 6:10 NIV Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
C2 Hope. Our first and greatest hope is in God. Faith is believing God. Hope is expectation.
D1 Psalm 31:24 NIV Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.
D2 Psalm 33:17-18, 20 NIV A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save. 18 But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, ... 20 We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.

B3 2 Corinthians Chapter 2 Regarding repentance, forgiveness, comfort and truth

C1 Repentance is change is attitude and action. Consider King Manasseh:
D1 2 Chronicles 33:9 NIV But Manasseh led Judah and the people of Jerusalem astray, so that they did more evil than the nations the LORD had destroyed before the Israelites.
D2 2 Chronicles 33:13, 15-16 NIV And when he prayed to him, the LORD was moved by his entreaty and listened to his plea; so he brought him back to Jerusalem and to his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the LORD is God. ... 15 He got rid of the foreign gods and removed the image from the temple of the LORD, as well as all the altars he had built on the temple hill and in Jerusalem; and he threw them out of the city. 16 Then he restored the altar of the LORD and sacrificed fellowship offerings and thank offerings on it, and told Judah to serve the LORD, the God of Israel.
C2 Forgiveness is turning an issue over to God and not seeking personal revenge. If a crime is committed, it must be reported to law enforcement.

B4 2 Corinthians Chapter 3 Competent but not boastful and old and new covenant

C1 “We have done a great work, but if it wasn’t for God’s help and blessing, we are nothing but failures.”
C2 Colossians 3:12 NIV Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

B5 2 Corinthians 4 Contrasting the Devil’s Ways with God’s Ways

C1 Truth and transparency are God’s way of ministry. Any other is not God’s way. Importance of truth (note, I don’t agree with Muehlenberg in everything). Importance of transparency in ministry. (A couple of sources here and here (Be cautious with Thom Rainer as he promotes his products, etc.)
C2 Correctly interpreting the Scriptures.

B6 2 Corinthians 5 Contrasting earthly sorrows with heavenly joys and inward character and outward show

C1 The longing believers have for our new body that God will give us after we die.
C2 What is your goal in this life? What is mine? 2 Corinthians 5:1 ISV We know that if the earthly tent we live in is torn down, we have a building in heaven that comes from God, an eternal house not built by human hands.
C3 It is important we understand that we are a new creation. Our heart has been recreated. Its motives are different. It worldview and desires are godly.

B7 2 Corinthians 6 Day of Salvation, the apostle’s persecutions, and contrasting idols and God (Yahweh)

C1 If we are new creations, then it must show in the way we think, talk, and act both in private and in public. 2 Corinthians 6:6 GW People can see our purity, knowledge, patience, kindness, the Holy Spirit's presence in our lives, our sincere love.
C2 We must take this verse very seriously: 2 Corinthians 6:14 GW Stop forming inappropriate relationships with unbelievers. Can right and wrong be partners? Can light have anything in common with darkness?

B8 2 Corinthians 7 Purify our hearts and body and joy for repentance

C1 We need to think, talk, and live as Christians. We have a new worldview and lifestyle. 2 Corinthians 7:1 GW Since we have these promises, dear friends, we need to cleanse ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit and live a holy life in the fear of God.
C2 We need to speak the truth, not to hurt people but for their repentance.

B9 2 Corinthians 8-9 Financial giving instructions

C1 We need to help our brethren if we are able, whether by prayer, work, money, listening, assisting, etc.
C2 Our financial collection is not a tax (tithe) but of a willing heart whether 5%, 10%, or 50%. 2 Corinthians 9:7 NKJV So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.

B10 2 Corinthians 10 Judge the Heart Not Appearance

C1 When a Christian fights for his/her faith, it is not with military weapons, or anger, yelling, force, bullying, etc. 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 GW The weapons we use in our fight are not made by humans. Rather, they are powerful weapons from God. With them we destroy people's defenses, that is, their arguments and all their intellectual arrogance that oppose the knowledge of God. We take every thought captive so that it is obedient to Christ.
C2 2 Corinthians 10:12 GNB Of course we would not dare classify ourselves or compare ourselves with those who rate themselves so highly. How stupid they are! They make up their own standards to measure themselves by, and they judge themselves by their own standards!
D1 Proverbs 12:15 ESV The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice.
D2 Galatians 6:3 GNB If you think you are something when you really are nothing, you are only deceiving yourself.

B11 2 Corinthians 11 Contrasting false apostles with true apostles

C1 A difference between natural gifts and spiritual gifts: 2 Corinthians 11:5-6 GW I don't think I'm inferior in any way to your super-apostles. Even though I'm not good with words, I know what I'm talking about. Timothy and I have made this clear to you in every possible way.
C2 The suffering of a true apostle.
C3 Weakness or acknowledgment of God’s grace? Jeremiah 9:23-24 GNB The LORD says, "The wise should not boast of their wisdom, nor the strong of their strength, nor the rich of their wealth. 24 If any want to boast, they should boast that they know and understand me, because my love is constant, and I do what is just and right. These are the things that please me. I, the LORD, have spoken."

B12 2 Corinthians 12 Paul’s vision, thorn, God’s grace, and proofs he is true apostle

C1 Sometimes special blessings lead to the temptation of pride, but God knows what we need. A problem, a suffering or a difficulty, may actually be a blessing. 2 Corinthians 12:7-10 GW especially because of the excessive number of revelations that I've had. Therefore, to keep me from becoming conceited, I am forced to deal with a recurring problem. That problem, Satan's messenger, torments me to keep me from being conceited. I begged the Lord three times to take it away from me. But he told me: "My kindness is all you need. My power is strongest when you are weak." So I will brag even more about my weaknesses in order that Christ's power will live in me. Therefore, I accept weakness, mistreatment, hardship, persecution, and difficulties suffered for Christ. It's clear that when I'm weak, I'm strong.
C2 When I am weak, God is strong. Isaiah 40:29-31 GNB He strengthens those who are weak and tired. 30 Even those who are young grow weak; young people can fall exhausted. 31 But those who trust in the LORD for help will find their strength renewed. They will rise on wings like eagles; they will run and not get weary; they will walk and not grow weak.

B13 2 Corinthians 13 Final advice and greeting

C1 Do we do this? We must. 2 Corinthians 13:5 GW Examine yourselves to see whether you are still in the Christian faith. Test yourselves! Don't you recognize that you are people in whom Jesus Christ lives? Could it be that you're failing the test?
C2 Psalms 26:2 GNB Examine me and test me, LORD; judge my desires and thoughts.

1 & 2 Corinthians Teaching Outline Part A

B1 Basic Issue is Church Problems

B2 Basic outline

C1 1-4 Divisions in the church
C2 5-6 Moral Issues
C3 7-8 Questions About Marriage and Offerings Made to Idols
C4 9-10 It is right for a Christian worker to receive financial help
C5 11 Women and the Lord’s Supper
C6 12-14 Spiritual Gifts
C7 15-16 Resurrection and Final Teachings

B3 1-4 Divisions in the church

C1 We are not to follow certain teachers. There are many big name teachers with incredibly large followings.
D1 2 Peter 2:1 LEB But there were also false prophets among the people, as there will be false teachers among you also, who will bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, thus bringing on themselves swift destruction.
D2 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 BSB And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their actions.
C2 We need to beware.
D1 Acts 17:11 NRSV These Jews were more receptive than those in Thessalonica, for they welcomed the message very eagerly and examined the scriptures every day to see whether these things were so.
D2 1 John 4:1 GNB My dear friends, do not believe all who claim to have the Spirit, but test them to find out if the spirit they have comes from God. For many false prophets have gone out everywhere.
D3 Revelation 2:2 NRSV I know your works, your toil and your patient endurance. I know that you cannot tolerate evildoers; you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them to be false.
C3 We are followers of Jesus Christ.
C4 Big name teachers can be wrong. We are human. If we blindly follow them in their erroneous teaching, we will be held accountable, just as they will be held accountable by God for false teaching.
C5 We are responsible to read and study the Bible. If you don’t know how, consider this source as a start.
C6 All brothers and sisters in Christ (believers) have the same Holy Spirit.
C7 Teachers are important, but we must test them. They are resources, not infallible.

B4 5-6 Moral Issues

C1 A man married his step-mother. (1 Corinthians was written ~55 CE).
C2 The Jerusalem Council (~49 CE) decided before: Acts 15:19-20 EMTV Therefore I judge that we must not cause trouble for those who are turning to God from among the Gentiles; 20 but that we write to them to abstain from things polluted by idols, and from sexual immorality, from things strangled, and from blood.
C3 The church must deal with this sin by excommunicating these 2 people. It is not a time to rejoice but to be sorrowful. God still has rules for His people. Paul’s decision is consistent with Old Testament teaching: Leviticus 18:8 GW Never have sexual intercourse with your stepmother. She is related to you through your father.
C4 A little sin leads to big sin. One time occurrence of sin leads to many occurrences.

B5 7-8 Questions About Marriage and Offerings Made to Idols

C1 Due to the persecution of the day, Paul recommends not to marry. Nevertheless, marriage is honorable and blessed by God. If you want to marry, marry.
C2 Sex is good and blessed in marriage (God’s plan). Both must enjoy pleasure.
C3 Husbands must submit to their wives just as wives to husbands: I Corinthians 7:4 GW A wife doesn't have authority over her own body, but her husband does. In the same way, a husband doesn't have authority over his own body, but his wife does.
C4 Divorce is not God’s plan, but He understands the sinful nature of humans, so there are allowances. Conditions for Divorce
C5 Circumcision is not a condition needed for salvation, to live a godly Christian life, or to be considered by God to be a mature, superior Christian.
C6 Personally, I understand this passage to teach that if we are aware that food or other things have been dedicated and undergone rituals of a false religion, then we are not to use them. Not using them to provide a testimony and a protection to those who would consider using them sin. If we are not aware of any dedication or rituals, then we don’t ask questions.
D1 I Corinthians 8:6-9 GW But for us, "There is only one God, the Father. Everything came from him, and we live for him. There is only one Lord, Jesus Christ. Everything came into being through him, and we live because of him." But not everyone knows this. Some people are so used to worshiping false gods that they believe they are eating food offered to a false god. So they feel guilty because their conscience is weak. Food will not affect our relationship with God. We are no worse off if we eat that food and no better off if we don't. But be careful that by using your freedom you don't somehow make a believer who is weak in faith fall into sin.
D2 I Corinthians 8:12-13 GW When you sin against other believers in this way and harm their weak consciences, you are sinning against Christ. Therefore, if eating food offered to false gods causes other believers to lose their faith, I will never eat that kind of food so that I won't make other believers lose their faith.

B6 9-10 It is right for a Christian worker to receive financial help

C1 It is right for a Christian worker to receive financial help
C2 Paul give the reason we do not eat food dedicated and/or blessed by ritual of a false god. I Corinthians 10:18-21 GW Look at the people of Israel from a human point of view. Don't those who eat the sacrifices share what is on the altar? Do I mean that an offering made to a false god is anything, or that a false god itself is anything? Hardly! What I am saying is that these sacrifices which people make are made to demons and not to God. I don't want you to be partners with demons. You cannot drink the Lord's cup and the cup of demons. You cannot participate at the table of the Lord and at the table of demons.

B7 11 Women and the Lord’s Supper

C1 The first part of the chapter deals with proper attitudes in prayer.
C2 The second part concerning the Lord’s Supper. The Lord’s Supper
D1 Is worship of God.
D2 Is a corporate gathering of fellowship with God.
D3 Is a time to leave personal opinions and focus on worshiping together.
D4 Is a time to remember the great blessing of salvation made possible by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

B8 12-14 Spiritual Gifts

C1 God gives spiritual gifts for service to Him. This is towards the brothers and sisters, then as a witness to those who do not believe.
C2 People may have the same gift, but in different quantity and area of service.
C3 God’s gifts are different than natural gifts.
C4 Love is a choice. Love is seen in its actions in public AND in private.
C5 The proper use of gifts in the church service.

B8 15-16 Resurrection and Final Teachings

C1 The importance of remaining steadfast and faithful in belief and life.
C2 A theological summary of salvation. I Corinthians 15:3-4 MKJV For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received, that Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.
C3 Truths about the resurrection
D1 It will happen, because it was promised and Jesus was resurrected.
D2 All people are resurrected. Some to eternal life (because of their faith in Jesus), and some to eternal death (because they refused to believe). Daniel 12:2 NIV Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt.
D3 Is proof that death will one day be destroyed, because Yeshua, the Messiah, is victor over all.
D4 The resurrected body of believers is different than our present body.
D5 Show us the importance of being faithful and steadfast always even to death. I Corinthians 15:58 MKJV So that, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not without fruit in the Lord.
C4 Freely given offerings are God’s plan to meet the needs of believers and congregational needs. The tithe is for Israel. The OT tithe is more or less a tax for Israelites. A couple of thoughts about giving and tithe here. (Note, I am no fan of Mr. MacArthur (his doctorate is honorary, not earned) but his comments are appropriate).
C5 Final notes and greetings
