Difficult Topics

FORGE wanted to cover some “Difficult Topics” from May 24 – August 23, 2022, to get a handle on what’s going on in the world and how we, as Christians, should respond to those issues.

For our time together we determined to go through the following questions and process:

  1. What is the ISSUE?
  2. Do I truly UNDERSTAND the issue? [Opposing viewpoints, etc.]
  3. How do you FEEL about the issue? Why?
  4. What do the SCRIPTURES say about the issue, directly or indirectly?
  5. What would Jesus do? What would Jesus have US do? What lesson(s) is this teaching me?

The dates and topics we decided to cover, as well as some of the Scriptures for each topic are below.

(A PDF of all of this is available here. There is also a PDF of a document from our Church denomination on “”Gender Identity Disorder or Gender Dysphoria in Christian Perspective” here.)

1 CORINTHIANS — Part 7

I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some.

1 Corinthians 9:22b

Marriage takes work It takes communication. It takes sacrifice. It takes love.

None of this should be a surprise, but knowing it and applying it are two different things.

Couples need to be there for each other – consistently and humbly!

When we get puffed-up in our relationships and demand our own ways instead of submitting in love and respect to each other, bad seeds are planted and start to take hold.

Let this not be!
