Church Gone Wild
In Acts chapter 18, Paul visited and stayed for a few years in a city that can only be compared to modern day Las Vegas. The city of Corinth was wild. It was out of control in every way and Paul helped start a church there. Several years later, Paul got word that the church was imitating the culture around it and was also out of control. It truly was a “church gone wild” which shows up most evidently in an absolute lack of concern for one another. With fatherly intentions, Paul wrote to them bluntly, poignantly, and hopefully to correct them, discipline them, and point them to a better way which involves being concerned for one another in everything. The words Paul wrote to the Corinthian church are just as relevant today as when he wrote them.
