“For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?”
King James Version (KJV)
3:3 For while there is among you emulation in your hearts, strife in your words, and actual divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk according to men - As mere men; not as Christians, according to God.
1Co 3:3 Ye are yet carnal. Hence, still not spiritual enough to receive the higher teaching, the "hidden wisdom" (1Co 2:7), the meat. For whereas [there is] among you . . . divisions. The proof that they were yet carnal was the existence of divisions in the church. Are ye not carnal, and walk as men? Exhibit the jealous and discordant spirit characteristic of men of the world.
