There are many
fundamentally important things to be learned from the 1
Corinthian letter. We discover that an assembly of God's people is often
quite different in practice from what we would wish it to be.
congregation was a wild and woolly group, but their basic problems
are the same problems we face in congregations today. This makes
the I Corinthian epistle especially helpful to us. We will learn a lot
from Paul as he attempts to "save again" a church which he began, and
which just about broke his heart.
