1 Corinthians 9:24 Explained – Running The Race
It’s amazing how people can look at one word and just build an entire theology out of it that totally conflicts with what the Scriptures teach us. This disqualification is not from God. He’s talking about the Jewish people disqualifying him. He’s saying that if he comes to share this message of Jesus, while at the same time they are viewing him is blatantly having no respect or regard for their Jewish laws, he will be disqualified as a messenger in their mind. They will not listen to him. Consider that obnoxious drunk guy in the bar who’s sharing the gospel of Jesus. He may indeed love Jesus, but to those around him hearing his message, they will not take him seriously. He will be disqualified in their minds. So Paul again is willing to sacrifice his complete freedom in Christ so that his fellow Jews will be willing to hear his message about the price.

Mike Cynar grew up in church and observed that countless people would go to church and then just stop. The church always referred to them as ‘fake Christians’ or ‘backsliders’ but Mike discovered the problem was deeper. The problem was the church message. The message was 90% behavior improvement and how bad you are, with a pinch of who you are in Christ, It was like every sermon was being preached to the church of Corinth. It’s in the Baptist church, Catholic, Pentecost, and most every other church. After discovering the true gospel message and how we are made right with God because of what ‘Jesus did’ (not what ‘we do’) Mike set out to free believers from behavior improvement programs and bring them back to Jesus. The Result – Jesus Without Religion was launched.
