Divisions in the Church

1 Corinthians 1

10 I appeal to you, brothers, 1 by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no p divisions among you, but that you be united q in the same mind and the same judgment. 11 For it has been reported to me by Chloe's people that there is r quarreling among you, my brothers. 12 What I mean is that s each one of you says, "I follow Paul," or "I follow t Apollos," or "I follow u Cephas," or "I follow Christ." 13 v Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you w baptized in the name of Paul? 14 I thank God that I baptized none of you except x Crispus and y Gaius, 15 so that no one may say that you were baptized in my name. 16 (I did baptize also z 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 a not with words of eloquent wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.
