1 Corinthians 7:1-15 Single? Married? His Needs, Her Needs

In this study:

  • Is celibacy good? or bad?
  • What do husbands and wives owe each other?
  • What are the ten emotional needs identified by Willard Harley and highlighted in his book, His Needs, Her Needs?
  • What are the six “Love Busters” highlighted by Harley?
  • What is the evidence that Paul may have been married at one time?
  • Why did Paul recommend staying unmarried at that particular time?
  • Should we consider part of 1 Corinthians to be uninspired by God?

(Note: This study ends pretty abruptly. Next Sunday, I plan to pick up where I left off.)
