Our culture seems to be increasingly divided in terms of religious and political beliefs. Sadly, these divisions are also a reality in the church, even over issues of lesser importance. In this message from 1 Corinthians 1, David Platt points to Christ and His cross as the ground of the church’s unity and the theme of the church’s proclamation. This is the first sermon in a new series in which we will make our way through the book of 1 Corinthians. This letter from Paul to the church at Corinth covers a wide range of important issues, and as we’ll see, the message of the cross, though foolish and offensive to the world, is the very message the world and the church desperately needs to hear.
David Platt serves as pastor at McLean Bible Church in Washington, D.C. He is the founder and president of Radical. He is the author of several books, including Radical, Radical Together, Follow Me, Counter Culture, and Something Needs to Change.
