    There is another way to view the role of the house of Chloe - they informed Paul about the divisions, but were not actually part of the problem, rather hoping that Paul would put things right. Perhaps someone more knowledgeable than I can explain better?

    The apostle Paul is trying to clean up bad doctrine among the Corinthian church, especially in the house of Cloe. It appears this Cloe is a leader of this faction, the issues appear to be on individual representations of men, the focus on Christ is not there. Paul is attempting to refocus church mindset on what Christ accomplished through his sacrifice and resurrection

    It is God that chooses and quailifies a man for a position in the kingdom of God. And not man because he would be leaving some people out:he would choose them by how educated, good looking, wealthy, social group etc... we can do all things by the spirit of God through his son Jesus christ. A man that thinks he is so great God would have to bring them down and those of low degree God would bring them up.
