1 Corinthians – Nim’s Math Test

1 Corinthians

Nim confuses what Paul writes in 1 Corinthians with a loophole to getting out of schoolwork.

↓ Transcript
Con: How did your math test go?
Nim: Not well. But it's okay.

Nim: I told my teacher that Paul said God "Made foolish the wisdom of the world." So I don't need to know math.

Con: You realize that's not what that verse really means.

Nim: Tomorrow, I'm going to tell the football coach what I think of him, 'cause God "chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong."
Con: Good luck with that.

Ephesians 2:10 – Life is Poetry

ephesians 2:10

Abby learns the word Paul uses for man in Ephesians is the same word that became “poetry,” leading her to say that we are all God’s poems. But Nim has another idea.

↓ Transcript
Abby: In Ephesians, the word Paul uses to describe God's creation of us is the same word that became "poetry."

Abby: So you could say that each of us is one of God's "poems."

Nim: Not me.

Nim: I feel more like an unfinished short story.

"We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works." - Ephesians 2:10

Romans 4:13 – Obedience

Obedience

Strong faith doesn’t come about because we’re obedient to God’s laws. Instead, obedience to God’s laws comes about because of a strong faith.

Clearly, God’s promise to give the whole earth to Abraham and his descendants was based not on his obedience to God’s law, but on a right relationship with God that comes by faith.

Romans 4:13

↓ Transcript
Nim: Professor Amos, my master and I are fighting lately.
Amos: Sounds like the two of you need a good obedience class.
Nim: I don't think so. We tried that last year and he was no more obedient coming out as he was going in.

Many of us need an "obedience to God" class!

Colossians 2:3

↓ Transcript
Nim: What's up, Amos? Why aren't you dressed for exploring? We said we were going to look for hidden treasure.

Genesis 6:18 – Noah’s Wife

Noah's Wife

The story of Noah’s arc covers a large part of Genesis (Gen 5:32-10:1). Although Noah’s wife plays a large part in the story, we never learn her name.

But I will confirm my covenant with you. So enter the boat—you and your wife and your sons and their wives.

Genesis 6:18

1 John 4:1 – Don’t Believe Everything You Hear

Don't Believe Everything You Hear

Christians must take many things on faith, but it’s important not to believe everything we hear. A little skepticism can protect us from false prophets.

Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.

1 John 4:1

↓ Transcript
Con: I hear you told Nim food has no calories if eaten in church.
Amos: That's right!
Con: No, that's wrong. Food always has calories.
Amos: Really? Oh, well. No harm, no foul.
Con: Then I guess you haven't seen him.
Amos: Seen who?
Nim: Hi guys, what's shaking?

Don't believe everything you hear.

Food In Church Has No Calories?

Food In Church Has No Calories

God gives us so many blessings, it’s easy to go a little too far. While enjoying these blessings is not a sin, the Bible teaches us we need self control.

So prepare your minds for action and exercise self-control. Put all your hope in the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world.

1 Peter 1:13

↓ Transcript
Amos: I can't wait for the church dinner this week! I'm going to have 2 hamburgers, a giant plate of fries, some of those big pickles, a couple of chocolate milks and two...no...three desserts!
Nim: Hold on, Amos...I thought you were on a diet. That's a lot of calories.
Amos: I am. But food you eat in church doesn't have any calories.
Nim: Hot dog!

If only that were true.

1 Corinthians 10:13 – Temptation

1 Corinthians 10:13 - Temptation

Every day, Satan tempts us with the sins of the world, making them seem irresistible. When this happens to you, pray for strength to fight his temptations.

The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.

1 Corinthians 10:13

↓ Transcript
Amos: The vet made my master put me on a diet.
Nim: How's that going?
Amos: I realized that being on a diet is a lot like our journey as Christians. Every morning, we have to wake up and make a decision to be faithful or not.
Nim: Yeah, but at least with a diet, you don't have the devil whispering in your ear to be bad.
Amos: I don't know. I've always thought the devil might come dressed as a cupcake.

Just like in dieting, we must remain resolute in our Christian walk.
