This series is an in-depth study of the book of 1 Corinthians. In the letter, the Apostle Paul is writing to a church that may sound very familiar to the world that we live in today. We pray you will join us for this important study.
Addressing Cliques in the Church
Why did Paul write his letter to the church at Corinth? He begins this letter dealing with a lack of unity in the church. We will see what was going on in the church at Corinth and how we can apply it to our lives today.
1 Corinthians 1:10-17 (ESV) 10 I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment. 11 For it has been reported to me by Chloe's people that there is quarreling among you, my brothers. 12 What I mean is that each one of you says, “I follow Paul,” or "I follow Apollos," or "I follow Cephas," or "I follow Christ." 13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? 14 I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius, 15 so that no one may say that you were baptized in my name. 16 (I did baptize also the household of Stephanas. Beyond that, I do not know whether I baptized anyone else.) 17 For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with words of eloquent wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.
