1 Corinthians 10:23-24 You say, “I am allowed to do anything” —but not everything is good for you. You say, “I am allowed to do anything”—but not everything is beneficial. 24 Don’t be concerned for your own good but for the good of others.
🔺PURITY IN A FILTHY WORLD!
Only through God’s Holy Spirit can we live and not be contaminated by the evil in this world. We must infuse our minds and hearts with God’s Word and commit as much as we can to memory to recall it in times of temptation. God’s Word must become an integral part of our lives; it needs to become most significant in what we say and do.
God’s Word shows us the mistakes that Israel made. We have a choice to learn from them or to repeat them. We do not have to put our hand on a red-hot stove after seeing what happened when others did! God even let us know what happened to Israel when they disobeyed Him. We remember by reading God’s Word that while yes, we are forgiven, there is a consequence, the affliction of sin.
I encourage you to read 1 Corinthians 10:1-33. Study the warnings from Israel’s history and take heed from God to avoid repeating their disobedience. Seek not only your good but also the good of many, so that they may be saved.

The Five Solas
(Scripture alone), Solus Christus (Christ alone), sola fide (faith alone), sola gratia (grace alone), and soli Deo gloria (glory to God alone).
The Five Solas form the nucleus of the evangelical faith. They not only capture the gospel of Jesus Christ and explain how that gospel takes root in the sinner, but they also define where the authority of that gospel resides and to what end that gospel is preached and proclaimed.
