Bible: 1 Cor 1:11-17

1:11 For members of Chloe’s household have made it clear to me, my brothers and sisters, 1  that there are quarrels 2  among you. 1:12 Now I mean this, that 3  each of you is saying, “I am with Paul,” or “I am with Apollos,” or “I am with Cephas,” or “I am with Christ.” 1:13 Is Christ divided? Paul wasn’t crucified for you, was he? 4  Or were you in fact baptized in the name of Paul? 5  1:14 I thank God 6  that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius, 1:15 so that no one can say that you were baptized in my name! 1:16 (I also baptized the household of Stephanus. Otherwise, I do not remember whether I baptized anyone else.) 1:17 For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel – and not with clever speech, so that the cross of Christ would not become useless. 7
