Now, dear brothers and sisters, I appeal to you by the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ to stop arguing among yourselves. Let there be real harmony so there won't be divisions in the church. I plead with you to be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.
References for 1 Corinthians 1:10
For some members of Chloe's household have told me about your arguments, dear brothers and sisters.
Some of you are saying, "I am a follower of Paul." Others are saying, "I follow Apollos," or "I follow Peter," or "I follow only Christ."
References for 1 Corinthians 1:12
Can Christ be divided into pieces?Was I, Paul, crucified for you? Were any of you baptized in the name of Paul?
I thank God that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius,
for now no one can say they were baptized in my name.
(Oh yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas. I don't remember baptizing anyone else.)
For Christ didn't send me to baptize, but to preach the Good News -- and not with clever speeches and high-sounding ideas, for fear that the cross of Christ would lose its power.
