Four Reasons to Practice Christian Morality, 1 Corinthians 5:1-6:20

While traveling the past two weeks, I've attended two different Bible study classes in Baptist churches, one using the Lifeway material, the other not. Both had very good teachers, but I have to say that the better Bible study was the one that used the Lifeway material. That teacher interestingly never mentioned Lifeway's lesson ideas as he taught. He simply taught his own plan as applied in that particular church's situation (getting a new pastor).

As teachers, how to make the lesson plan "our own" is a challenge we face each week. It helps to read other lesson plans taken from the same Bible passage.

Gary Payne posted a link to his PowerPoint slides for "Four Reasons to Practice Christian Morality".

James Patterson, Second Baptist, Houston, posted a link to his lesson plan from 1 Cor 5:1-6:20, which he titled, "Free from Sexual Immorality."

Lastly, I never hesitate to suggest reading Jeff Meyer's plan.

I do appreciate the diversity of ideas! I like to pick and choose and blend things together to fit our class as well as possible. I apologize for not contributing, but I'm usually still "fine-tuning" on Saturday night! :-)

Rittenhouse, no apology necessary. Most of us can understand your comment. Nevertheless, don't hesitate to contribute an insight God gives you. You never know how God can use it to help another teacher.

You're right Martha. Gary's slides are a blessing--and he is consistent about producing them! Other teachers are welcome to post their slides, too. Just let me know.
