Sunday, May 2, 2021. 1 Corinthians 1:10-17 | “Is Christ Divided?” Is Christ divided? The answer to this question seems so obvious — No! But why then, did this question need to be asked and the problem of division raised? The church in Corinth was together, but they were also divided. Members had aligned with certain leaders in a way that turned their follow-ship into confessions that threatened their fellowship. So the apostle exhorts them in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ to not be divided, because ANY division in the church of Christ represents something that is simply not true of Christ. Christ is not divided, so division must not be permitted among Christ’s people who are known by His name, united with His Baptism, and proclaiming His Cross.
