Sectarianism Is Carnal
Jesus Christ Is the Only Foundation

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:1 - And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:2 - I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:3 - for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:4 - For when one says, “I am of Paul,” and another, “I am of Apollos,” are you not carnal?
Watering, Working, Warning

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:5 - Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers through whom you believed, as the Lord gave to each one?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:6 - I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:7 - So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:8 - Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:9 - For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:10 - According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:11 - For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:12 - Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw,

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:13 - each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:14 - If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:15 - If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:16 - Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:20 - and again, “The LORD knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.”[fn]

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:21 - Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours:

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:22 - whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas, or the world or life or death, or things present or things to come—all are yours.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 3:23 - And you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.
