1 Timothy (Program #10) – Dealing with the Elders

1 Timothy 5:17 says, “Let the elders who take the lead well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in word and teaching.”
But then the apostle follows in verse 19, addressing how to take care of problems in the Church. “Against an elder do not receive an accusation, except based upon two or three witnesses.” So, taking care of the administration of the local church or dealing with the elders in the church is an important issue in the New Testament that we are devoting our entire life study today from 1 Timothy.

2 Corinthians (Program #48) – Paul’s Vindication of His Apostolic Authority (3)

There were many problems in the church in Corinth, but through Paul’s first epistle most of the believers were brought back to the Lord and experience a further reconciliation.  One of the lingering problems, however he left it to be dealt with in his second epistle; this was the problem of his own apostleship.  When the authority of the teaching is in question in a local church, this can be a serious problem.  It’s interesting that Paul saved this problem for last to deal with.  We look at why as we explore Paul’s vindication of his apostolic authority on today’s program.
