Man & Woman in Biblical Perspective, Part 1

References: 1 Corinthians 11

It has been said that those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it, and the 10th and 11th chapters of 1 Corinthians are ripe with examples and warnings to the Christian who will heed them.
How far does Christian liberty extend? Is there a guideline for men and women in their relationship to one another and towards God? How may we correctly observe the Lord's Supper?
These issues are as relevant today as they were in the early church. In general, when it came to spiritual things, the church in Corinth was a church that was fascinated by the spectacular and the flamboyant, forsaking the routine pathway of love that is grounded in truth. It might be referred to as the fellowship of confusion. And in that sense, there are striking resemblances to the Church in the 21st century.
Do you easily forget the past? If so, then consider the lessons learned by the Corinthian church.

The Hole in Our Holiness

The Hole in our Holiness is that we don't seem to care much about holiness. Or, at the very least, we don't understand it. And we all have our reasons too: Maybe the pursuit of holiness seems legalistic. Maybe it feels like one more thing to worry about in your already overwhelming life. Maybe the emphasis on effort in the Christian life appears unspiritual. Or maybe you've been trying really hard to be holy and it's just not working! Whatever the case, the problem is clear: too few Christians look like Christ and too many don't seem all that concerned about it. This is a book for those of us who are ready to take holiness seriously, ready to be more like Jesus, ready to live in light of the grace that produces godliness. This is a book about God's power to help us grow in personal holiness and to enjoy the process of 
transformation.
