A Church in the City – 1st Corinthians – part 14
Sometimes there are very tragic things that happen in the scriptures. The Corinthians were about to be reminded of one in particular that happened to the children of Israel. Here is that tragedy. But with most of them God was not well pleased, for their bodies were scattered in the wilderness – 1 Cor. 10:5.
How could this be? They were privileged people. They were a blessed people. They were all under the cloud, they all passed through the sea and were all baptized into Moses. They all ate the same spiritual food and drink. But with most of them God was not well pleased. All these spiritual blessings; they were privileged by God and despite everything they did not please God.
