Series: 1 Corinthians - Kingdom Culture
Branding. It's everywhere we look. What do people THINK when they see you? What do they FEEL when they think about you? Nonbelievers will think of us as FOOLS. But that is NOT how we are to respond to the world. The church in Corinth was concerned about who they followed, and what that said about them. Unfortunately, their brand of Christianity was less about Christ and more about the Rabbi that taught them about Jesus. Pursuing a brand of Christianity, instead of Christ, can be dangerous. Paul likens that kind of wisdom to being the same as that of the world. This sermon is for anyone who believes their BRAND of Christianity is better than others. Be careful.

This sermon is about how and when to know the difference.

These are the major lesson from the minor prophets...
