WHI-938 | Word & Sacrament Ministry

For the past few weeks the hosts have been discussing some of the highlights of First Corinthians in order to see how Paul preached the gospel of Christ in a Pre-Christian culture. But in this program the focus centers not on preaching, but rather on receiving Christ in the Lord’s Supper. How are we to understand what is happening in this meal, and why is it such an important issue for Paul? That’s what’s on tap this week on the White Horse Inn.

WHI-937 | Idolatry & Other Bad Habits

Continuing their brief series through First Corinthians, the hosts this week take a look at the issue of meat sacrificed to idols. Though this might not be a hot issue on the front burner of today’s church, this text helps us to see that believers sometimes bring their Pagan practices and habits into the church. Yet as the Apostle Paul instructs in his letter, everything we do must be examined in light of the gospel of Christ.

WHI-936 | Immorality in the Church

Though Christians are being sanctified they have not yet become perfect, and thus continue to sin in various ways. But what should a church do when the sin is scandalous? How are we to relate to such people? Also, how should we relate to those outside the church? These and other issues from Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians will be addressed on this edition of the White Horse Inn.

WHI 935 | We Preach Christ Crucified

Countless churches across the country offer relevant messages week after week that focus on wisdom for life, tips for marriage and family, money management, etc. But the Apostle Paul preferred a message of foolishness. Though “Greeks search for wisdom,” he wrote, “we preach Christ crucified.” What are the implications of this approach in our own day, and how might it transform our churches? Tune in to find out, as the hosts continue their discussion of Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians.

WHI-934 | Christ in a Pre-Christian Culture

How should we preach Christ in a Post-Christian culture? Surprisingly, the answer to that question is best discovered by examining the way the Apostle Paul preached Christ in the context of his Pre-Christian culture. So on this edition of the White Horse Inn, the hosts are beginning a brief series walking through some of the highlights of Paul’s first letter to the Corinthian church.

WHI-931 | Losing Our Religion

Our year-long theme this year is “Christ in a Post-Christian Culture.” But that implies that we once had a “Christian Culture.” So what were the origins of Christendom, and why did the Christian West eventually abandon its faith? These questions and more will be addressed on this edition of the White Horse Inn.

WHI-930 | The Foolishness of God

What is the most important task of the Christian Church in our time? Many Christians think the answer to that question has to do with some form of cultural transformation. But as the hosts discuss on this program, the Church’s primary task has nothing to do with our own activity. Proclaiming the gospel of Christ crucified for sinners is foolishness in the eyes of the world, and sometimes also in the eyes of the Church.
