vlog: 1 Corinthians 1:12-18 – No Divisions

 

 

Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul? I thank God that I baptized none of you, but Crispus and Gaius; Lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name. And I baptized also the household of Stephanas: besides, I know not whether I baptized any other. For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 1 Corinthians 1:12-18 KJV

 

The church must look quite a mess from heaven’s viewpoint.

Many Christians not only hold the name of Christ but also operate under an additional tag – a denomination. The division of God’s people into artificial groupings was never the will of God but the problem started very early in the history of the church.

Paul addresses this problem when writing to the church in Corinth. He even outlaws those who claim to exclusively follow Christ.

I trust these verses challenge the way we think.
