God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
For it hath been reported unto me about you, my brethren, by those who are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
Now this I say, when every one of you saith, "I am of Paul," and "I of Apollos," and "I of Cephas," and "I of Christ":
Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?
I thank God that I baptized none of you but Crispus and Gaius,
lest any should say that I had baptized in mine own name.
And I baptized also the household of Stephanas. Besides, I know not whether I baptized any other.
For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the Gospel, and not with the wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect.
For the preaching of the cross is foolishness to those who perish; but unto us who are saved, it is the power of God.
For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent."
