*This weekly newsletter will share about the Bible Breakdown podcast, things about RLC, and my favorite things from around the web. My prayer is it will help you know God better.
Hello friends. Happy Saturday. It's great to be in November. I am also glad to be firmly out of the book of Judges. Ha. The Letter to the Church in Corinth is fascinating because it is relevant today... just like all of the Bible. I look forward to digging deep with all of you.

🎧 My Favorite BibleBreakdown Episode This Week>>>
My favorite episode this week: 1 Corinthians 4.
📚 Feelings Don't Make You Right. God Does. 💪
(1 Corinthians 4:4 ) “My conscience is clear, but that doesn’t prove I’m right. It is the Lord himself who will examine me and decide.”
Observation: This is important to realize because emotions are intense. Have you ever felt something so substantial you couldn’t think about anything else? I have had an overwhelming “feeling” about something wrong. We all have. Feelings are powerful and good but make terrible leaders. We must allow God’s Word to lead and guide us through life. He doesn’t change His mind about us and is not swayed by temporary emotions. Enjoy your emotions, but be led by God.
Application: Submit every emotion to the will of God.
Prayer: Thank You, God. You are our faithful leader.

Is the Bible Inerrant? Do we have reason to trust the Bible is God's Word and without error in its meaning? Let's talk about it.
🤔 Question of the Week>>>
How Should Christians Love the LGBTQ Community? As a Christian community, we support the Bible. The Bible says any sexual activity outside of the heterosexual union of a husband and wife leads to sexual sin and brokenness. How do we love people who are in open sin? How would Jesus love them?
