Discussion for 1 Corinthians 3

    I was feeling very depressed and I read I Corinthians 3 about envy and strife and it was as if the LORD was speaking directly to me because there has been a lot of both envy and strife in my home. I am glad that I know my LORD and SAVIOR and that I can find comfort in his words. Amen

    "And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ." A newborn baby is a beautiful miracle of life and regeneration. The family looks with wonder at the little tiny hands and fingers and feet and toes, and the little face; and has to take very gentle care for this most helpless little person. Thank God we don't stay babies for long!
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Eternal truths-So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.

    Ray321, You just corrected yourself. With the scripture u used.
  • Ray321
    1 Corinthians 3:3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men? The Corinth Church were saved people, but they had a lot of sin in there lives, that why they were carnal, they were not growing in the Lord. Are we living like the Corinth today? I speak as a fool, maybe we do have churches like Corinth today.
