Paul Begins To Correct The Church At Corinth - Part 1

Tuesday and Wednesday I was in Redding working. I actually thought about taking my computer and Bible to blog, but I work late, go to bed at the hotel, wake up early, and get back to work so I can head home to my family. It's really a busy time because I only get up there once every two weeks or so.

Anyway, today I woke up at 4:30am with a migraine and it didn't go away until after noon. Even now, my head and stomach are not 100%. I stayed home from work to get better. I realized I didn't do a study yesterday and thought I'd try now (of course, the second I sit here and type, my early wake-up is catching up with me.

1 Corinthians 1:10-17 is where Paul begins to confront some divisions in the church at Corinth. The people of the church at Corinth were attempting to sound more holy than the next person my stating things like, "I follow Paul", or "I follow Apollos" and so on, all the way to the one's claiming, "I follow Christ." And these one's saying they follow Christ were not really any better than the one's saying the followed Paul. They were all trying to one-up each other and sound more spiritual.

Must...Sleep...I will continue.
