II. Dealing with Divisions
A. Christ and His Cross, the Unique Solution
to All Problems in the Church
1. Christ Not Divided
10 Now I beseech you, brothers, through the 1aname of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all 2bspeak the same thing and that there be no 3cdivisions among you, but that you be 4attuned in the dsame mind and in the same 5eopinion.
11 For it has been made clear to me concerning you, my brothers, by those of the household of 1Chloe, that there are astrifes among you.
12 Now I mean this, that each of you says, 1aI am of bPaul, and I of cApollos, and I of dCephas, and I of 2Christ.
13 Is 1Christ adivided? Was Paul 2crucified for you? Or were you bbaptized into the name of Paul?
14 I thank God that I baptized none of you except aCrispus and bGaius,
15 That no one may say that you were baptized into my name.
16 And I did baptize the household of aStephanas also; beyond that I do not know if I baptized any other.
17 For Christ did not 1send me to baptize but to announce the gospel, not in 2awisdom of speech that the 3bcross of Christ may not be made void.
