TOPIC: "CHARITY"

QUESTION: Is charity and love the same?

THOUGHT: If the King James has love in one passage and charity in

another maybe there is a difference.


REFERENCE: We at Grace Bible Study only use the King James Bible.

I. Is there one time that the word love is used in I Corinthians 13: 1-13?

A. I Corinthians 13 Has the word charity used 9 times.

B. I Corinthians 14: 1 The word charity is used, not love.

C. I Corinthians 8:3 The word love is used so the word love and charity

are both used in the King James.

II. What is charity?

Webster's Old World Dictionary says: "Good will toward the poor and suffering. "

A. I Corinthians 13:3 "Feed the poor and sacrifice" and you can still not have charity.

B. Charity is used in I Corinthians, Colossians, I & I1 Thessalonians, I & I1 Timothy, and Titus in Paul's writings.

III. Paul tells us to "do all things with charity". I Corinthians 16:14

A. Colossians 3:14 Charity has to be put on.

NOTE: In Colossians 3:19 is not the word love used? So does not

the King James use the word charity and love? But does not confuse them.

B. Romans 13:10 "Love worketh no ill", love is the fulfilling of the law.

C. I Timothy 1:5 The end of the commandment is charity.

D. Matthew 5:17 Christ fulfilled the law.

E. John 3:16 God's love--Christ.

F. II Corinthians 5:14 Our judgement.

G. Ephesians 4:3 Our duty.

H. Ephesians 4:13 So that all can be saved.

IV. NO SCHISM IN THE BODY--I Corinthians 12:25

NO DIVISION AMONG BELIEVERS--I Corinthians 1:10

THUS DENOMINATIONALISM IS NOT CHARITABLE.

V. The Gospel of Christ is to be preached to all. I Timothy 2:4-6, I Corinthians 15: 1-4

A. II Corinthians 5:19 Ministry is the reconciliation of the world.

B. Example in the pastoral verses:

I Timothy 4:12------All men.

I1 Timothy 2:22------Follow after.

I1 Timothy 3:10------Paul's example.

VI. If we believe I Corinthians 15: 1-4 and accept and trust as our Saviour,

then II Corinthians 5:14 would and should constrain us for all.

I Timothy 2:4-6-----A11 men.

Ephesians 3:9

Ephesians 2:14--------- Broken down the middle wall partition.
