  • I Corinthians 1:10-25
  • I Corinthians 1:10-17 – Paul appeals to them to stop calling themselves followers of particular men. Instead, they were to be unified as followers of Christ.  See also I Corinthians 3:4.
    • I Corinthians 1:17 – This is a “not-but” passage. Paul was sent to baptize, but that was not his primary goal.  His primary goal was to preach the gospel.  Only when someone hears and believes on their own will they be ready to be baptized.
  • I Corinthians 1:18-25 – Many people today still consider the gospel to be foolishness. God chose the message of the gospel to be foolishness to those who are wise in their own eyes.  We should not be surprised when that is the case.
