Pitiful Faith (sermon audio: Sunday a.m.)
Paul writes that if the Corinthians deny the resurrection, they are of all men “most pitiable.” The danger is when we detach from what Jesus has done in the resurrection, our faith becomes vain, empty, meaningless, worthless; and now Paul adds two more words - futile and pitiful. Doesn’t this sound vaguely familiar to the American church which is often immoral, ineffective, heretical, divided, and assimilating cultural norms and masquerading them as spiritual forms of worship? We have, as they, pulled the plug from our souls that holds us to the resurrection. Because of it, we should seriously consider our message, faith, doctrine, mission, and morals.
