But for right now, friends, I'm completely frustrated by your unspiritual dealings with each other and with God. You're acting like infants in relation to Christ,
capable of nothing much more than nursing at the breast. Well, then, I'll nurse you since you don't seem capable of anything more.
As long as you grab for what makes you feel good or makes you look important, are you really much different than a babe at the breast, content only when everything's going your way?
When one of you says, "I'm on Paul's side," and another says, "I'm for Apollos," aren't you being totally infantile?
