Has Christ been divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized in Paul's name?
I thank God that I didn't baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius
so that no one can say you were baptized in my name.
I also baptized Stephanas and his family. Beyond that, I'm not sure whether I baptized anyone else.
Christ didn't send me to baptize. Instead, he sent me to spread the Good News. I didn't use intellectual arguments. That would have made the cross of Christ lose its meaning.
The message about the cross is nonsense to those who are being destroyed, but it is God's power to us who are being saved.
